Trump enters presidency with worst ratings ever

Trump enters presidency with worst ratings everDonald Trump will become president Friday with an approval rating of just 40%, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.

It is the lowest rating of any recent president and 44 points below that of President Barack Obama, the 44th president.

Approval ratings for Trump's handling of the transition are more than 20 points below those for any of his three most recent predecessors.

In 2009 Obama had an 84% approval rating, 67% approved of Clinton's transition as of late December 1992 and 61% approved of George W. Bush's transition just before he took office in January 2001.

About 53% of respondents said Trump's statements and actions since Election Day had made them less confident in his ability to handle the presidency, and the public is split evenly on whether Trump will be a good or poor president.
