Republican, Donald Trump’s popularity among American voters has risen sharply in the days since the U.S.A.s’ presidential election, where he surprised most Americans by defeating the favourite, Hillary Clinton.

In a poll taken among registered voters, 46% said they had a ‘very positive’ or ‘somewhat positive’ view of the future president.

This is an increase of 9% compared to the days leading up to the election, when only 37% said the same thing, wrote the online magazine, Politico.

Barack Obama, who will hand over the keys to the White House on January 20, can be satisfied that he seems to be leaving the office as a popular president.

55% of respondents in the survey say they are satisfied with Obama’s efforts, compared to 50% before the election. Meanwhile, just 43% gave a thumb’s down to Obama today, compared to 48% before the election.
