    Poll: Americans believe Trump can bring prosperity, skeptical he can bring peace

    Poll: Americans believe Trump can bring prosperity, skeptical he can bring peace

    Americans have confidence Donald Trump’s administration will improve the economy, but they think the president-elect will do little to mend the environment, heal race relations or even keep the country out of war.

    A new Gallup poll released Monday tested 17 different potential goals for the Trump administration and found Americans have the most faith in Trump’s ability to handle the economy and keep the country safe from terrorism, though trust in Trump lags that for Barack Obama in 2008.

    More than six-in-10 Americans, 62 percent, say Trump’s administration will “reduce unemployment and create new jobs,” and 60 percent say Trump will “improve the economy.”

    In November 2008, 64 percent of Americans said Obama’s administration would “create a strong economic recovery,” and 67 percent said he “reduce unemployment.”

    Fifty-seven percent of Americans say Trump will keep the U.S. safe from terrorism, a shade lower than the 62 percent who said Obama would keep the U.S. safe eight years ago.

    One goal on which Trump is rated far higher than Obama: controlling illegal immigration. Fifty-nine percent say Trump’s administration will control illegal immigration, far higher than the 35 percent who said Obama’s administration would.

    Expectations are more tempered on other goals: improving education (53 percent), improving the health care system (52 percent), appointing good Supreme Court justices (52 percent), cutting taxes (51 percent) and reducing the federal budget deficit (46 percent).

    But there’s less confidence for Trump on matters of race: Only 44 percent think his administration will improve conditions for minorities and the poor, and just 35 percent think his administration will improve race relations.

    Just over a third, 35 percent, believe Trump will improve the quality of the environment, and only 38 percent think he will keep the nation out of war.

    And only 39 percent think Trump’s administration will heal political divisions in the U.S. – compared to 54 percent who thought Obama would immediately following his election in 2008.

    The Gallup poll was conducted November 10-11, surveying 1,000 adults. Each respondent was asked about 12 of the 17 items, meaning the sample size for each item is roughly 700 adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.

    Those are really good numbers!! GO TRUMP GO!!

    This shows that something went very wrong in the California and New York elections. I suspect illegal alien voting by the millions. This will need to be investigated in my opinion by California GOP.
