No Honeymoon Period For The Trump Administration
It is traditional for a new president and his administration to get a honeymoon period -- a few weeks or months for the public to give the new administration a chance to see if it is going to be a good one or a bad one. That has been true of presidents of both political parties in this modern era. Trump breaks that tradition though.
Donald Trump started his presidency with a higher unfavorable rating than favorable -- the only president of either party to do so. Now a new poll shows that 47% of the American public believes Trump is moving too fast to try and impose his will on the country, while only 35% says he is moving at about the right speed.
Trump, in his first few days, issued a flurry of new executive orders. And the three most important of those executive orders -- ordering a ban on muslims from seven countries entering this country, building a border wall, and suspending the U.S. program for Syrian refugees -- have majority disapproval from the public. His job approval is also upside down.
The Trump administration is off to a very bad start, and I doubt it will get any better. Unless it does, he stands to be a one-term president.
The charts above are from a new Gallup Poll -- done on January 30th and 31st of a random national sample of 1,018 adults, with a margin of error of 4 points.
