Voters Expect Trump to Upend Obama Accomplishments

While President Obama will leave office with high favorability and job approval ratings, a new USA Today/Suffolk poll finds 59% of voters expect that President-elect Donald Trump will dismantle Obama’s legacy, and many don’t seem to mind.

Key finding: Obama’s job approval rate was 54%, and yet 45% of those polled said that reversing his accomplishments would be a good thing, while 43% would disapprove.

Said pollster David Paleologos: “A majority of voters said that history will assess Barack Obama as a great or good president. And yet, there appears to be a disconnect, as so many voters are unconcerned that the job he did could be undone.”
