Just Weeks Out Of Office, Obama Delivered Some Big News — Trump Won’t Be Happy

As President Donald Trump finishes his second week in office, a new poll suggests that more than half of Americans wish former President Barack Obama was still leading the country. 

In a survey from Public Policy Polling, released Feb. 2, 40 percent of voters reported that they would like to see Trump impeached, though nearly half (48 percent) said that they would not support such an action.

Only 35 percent of respondents supported impeaching the president just one week prior to the current survey.

“Usually a newly elected President is at the peak of their popularity and enjoying their honeymoon period after taking office right now,” said Public Policy Polling President Dean Debnam.

“But Donald Trump’s making history once again with a sizeable share of voters already wanting to impeach him, and a majority of voters wishing they could have Barack Obama back.”

Indeed, 52 percent of respondents said that they would prefer the previous president — who has a 59 percent approval rating, according to Gallup — was still in office, while 43 percent said that they were happy with the current one, who has a 45 percent approval rating in Gallup polls.

Many Americans are displeased with Trump’s executive order to restrict travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, temporarily halt the refugee program, and indefinitely stop admitting any refugees from Syria.

“Americans think last week’s executive order is a Muslim ban and they don’t like it,” explained Debnam. “And beyond that, they think the order was executed in an incompetent fashion.”

Though voters are split almost equally on whether or not they support Trump’s immigration restrictions, with 47 percent in favor and 49 percent opposed, a 52 percent majority thought that the order was intentionally crafted as a Muslim ban; only 41 percent said it was not.

The idea of banning all Muslims was not a popular one in this survey — 65 percent said that they did not support such a religious ban, while only 26 percent said that they did.

Among Trump voters, 48 percent said that they supported a Muslim ban, while 40 percent did not, though 94 percent of those who said they voted for Trump in the presidential election also responded in favor of banning Muslims.
