Excerpt from TheBlaze

A new poll released by CNN/ORC shows that a majority of Americans are optimistic about President-elect Donald Trump’s impending presidency. According to the poll, 53 percent of Americans believe that Trump will do either a “fairly good” or “very good” job as president, compared with only 44 percent who believe he will do a “fairly poor” or “very poor” job as president. Voters are fairly evenly split on whether Trump’s actions since his surprise Election Day win have helped them feel more confident (48 percent) or less confident (43 percent) that he will do a good job as president.
Voters are most confident in Trump’s ability to deal with the economy, with 40 percent expressing “a lot of confidence” that he will do a good job dealing with the economy and an additional 25 percent expressing “some confidence.”
