Even most Democrats want Donald Trump to succeed as president, but 
voters are far less confident that things will play out that way.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds 
that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters think Trump’s presidency is more likely 
to be a success. Thirty percent (30%) say it’s more likely to be a 
failure instead, while 26% believe the Trump presidency will fall 
somewhere in between the two. (To see survey question wording, click 
here 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/questions/pt_survey_questions/january_2017/questions_trump_success_failure_january_3_4_2017>.) 


Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Republicans think Trump is likely to 
succeed, a view shared by only 17% of Democrats and 35% of voters not 
affiliated with either major party. Just over half (52%) of Democrats 
believe Trump is more likely to fail, but only seven percent (7%) of GOP 
voters and 28% of unaffiliateds agree.

But 57% of Democrats want Trump’s presidency to be a success. Of course, 
that compares to 91% of Republicans and 73% of unaffiliated voters. 
Twenty-six percent (26%) of voters in Hillary Clinton’s party want Trump 
to fail, while another 17% are undecided.

Among all voters, 73% want Trump’s presidency to be a success; 14% want 
it to fail, and 12% are not sure.

The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on January 3-4, 
2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 
percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all 
Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC 
<http://www.pulseopinionresearch.com/>. See methodology 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/about_us/methodology>.

Fifty-four percent (54%) of voters think major legislation to improve 
the country is likely to be passed during Trump’s first 100 days in 
office 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administration/november_2016/most_expect_major_action_in_trump_s_first_100_days>.That 
compares to 63% who felt that way about Barack Obama and the 
Democratic-controlled Congress just before he became president in 
January 2009 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/january_2009/63_expect_major_legislation_in_obama_s_first_100_days>. 


Among voters who want Trump’s presidency to be a success, 53% say it’s 
likely to achieve that goal. Eighty-eight percent (88%) of voters who 
want Trump to fail believe he’s more likely to do so.

Men want Trump to succeed more than women do and are more confident that 
he will. Middle-aged voters are slightly more skeptical about his 
chances of success than others are.

Blacks think he is much less likely to succeed than whites and other 
minority voters.

Only 17% of voters who Strongly Approve of the job President Obama is 
doing believe Trump is more likely to be a success. Among voters who 
Strongly Disapprove of the current president’s job performance, 78% 
expect Trump to succeed.

Just over half of all voters now view Trump favorably 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administration/december_2016/51_now_view_trump_favorably>, 
his high to date, although strong negative opinions still outweigh 
strong positive ones.

Trump in a TV interview shortly after Election Day made it clear 
that<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/november_2016/what_should_trump_do_first>repealing 
and replacing Obamacare and filling the long-standing vacancy on the 
U.S. Supreme Court are high on his list of action items 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/november_2016/what_should_trump_do_first>, 
and voters think that’s a good place to start.

Most voters think Democrats should work with Trump 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/november_2016/most_democrats_don_t_want_their_party_to_work_with_trump> once 
he’s in the White House, but Democrats strongly disagree. Still, voters 
are more hopeful about the parties cooperating than they’ve been since 
Obama’s inauguration in 2009.

Following Trump's election, voters are more optimistic about the future 
than they have been in over four years 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/top_stories/america_s_best_days>. 


With Republicans set to control both Congress and the White House, more 
voters than ever are expecting significant cuts in government spending 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/december_2016/most_see_major_government_spending_cuts_on_the_way>. 


A majority of voters have said for years that spending cuts help the 
economy 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/business/taxes/march_2015/voters_think_tax_spending_cuts_work_best_for_economy>. 
Americans are much more optimistic about their personal financial future 
<http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/business/general_business/december_2016/how_are_americans_finances_these_days> than 
they were a year ago.
