Only 13 percent of the population think that Donald Trump will be a good president, according to a new poll.

The poll, conducted by ‘Infact’, on behalf of newspaper VG on Wednesday, showed that only one in eight Norwegians believe in Donald Trump.
Shortly after the shock election result,  56.7 percent of the more than one thousand 18 year old Norwegians questioned, answered that they don’t think Donald Trump is a good presidential choice.
Asked whether they are more, or less, troubled by this election than that in 2012, a corresponding average Norwegian gave 4.11 on a scale of one to five (where 5 means a lot more uneasy).
Trump also received a low level of trust when questioned whether he is going to fulfill his promises; only reaching a 2.65  average on the scale  (where 5 means a very large extent).
Many believe, however, that the media has provided a negative image of the new US president. 31.9 percent answered yes to this, against 47.3 who disagreed.
Skepticism about Trump is still high, with 41.8 saying they believe the chances of a third world war have increased now that Trump is president of the U.S.A.
Despite these several areas of concern, respondents answered that only 2.77 out of 5 of the questions about the election will affect them in their everyday lives, or will affect them greatly.
