Donald Trump’s favorability improves since election: poll

The Washington Times reports:
President-elect Donald Trump’s favorable rating has jumped 9 points since the election and now sits at 46 percent, according to a poll released Monday.

Forty-six percent of registered voters also said they have an unfavorable view of Mr. Trump, according to the Politico/Morning Consult poll.

Just before the election, Mr. Trump had a 37 percent/61 percent favorable/unfavorable split.

“Trump’s favorability among voters has reached new highs since he became president-elect,” said Morning Consult Cofounder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp. “This honeymoon phase is common for new presidents. For example, Obama saw about a 20-point swing in his favor following the 2008 election.”

About six in 10 voters said Mr. Trump’s adult children and immediate family members should not be closely involved in the Trump administration
