President-elect Donald Trump now has the dubious distinction of having one the worst pre-inauguration approval ratings from the American people; ever! This according to the well respected pollsters at Gallup.
In fact in their poll of diverse sample of people before Donald’s inauguration found that he gets a dismal 55% unfavorable rating versus 40% favorable.
Is Donald Trump the worst President-elect ever?
In contrast, then President-elect Barack Obama had 78% favorable rating from the American people at the same time as Drumf (Trump).
