Is Trump More Popular Than Obama?

Why Trump has little influence on rising or falling stocks

And that includes former President Barack Obama, which must have the liberal media reeling.

A majority of Americans believe the Obama administration "improperly surveilled" the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, a new poll released this week found.

But while voters may be more willing to ascribe the country's economic state to Trump now, the GOP tax overhaul signed into law last month remains relatively unpopular.

And ultimately, 55 percent of respondents said they didn't trust Trump to do what's right.

The poll, conducted from January 25 to February 2, surveyed 900 people.

Among the looming issues that could impact Trump's approval, Rasmussen said, are the vote on a two-year budget deal and the Democrats' rebuttal memo to the majority House Intelligence Committee memo alleging that permission to spy on the Trump campaign would not have been obtained without the infamous anti-Trump "dossier" funded by the Democratic Party.

PM Modi embarks on three-nation visit to Palestine, Oman and UAE
More than 9 million Indians work and live in the Gulf region, of which about one third live in the UAE alone. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reciprocated the gesture by visiting India in January this year.

The Trump campaign organization immediately tweeted the comparison.

The partisan breakdown of those who believe the Obama administration likely spied on the Trump campaign is what you'd expect among those registered as either Democrats or Republicans, with 87 percent of Republicans believing it likely and only 31 percent of Democrats agreeing.

Mueller's investigation is legitimate, 50 percent of voters say, while 42 percent say it is a "political witch hunt".

Democrats had better hope they gain control of Congress in the 2018 election, given the poll's results on whether a special counsel was needed to "investigate whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election".

The longer the Trump-Russia probe drags out, the worse it is for Democrats, so don't be surprised when they start pushing for the investigation to wrap up.
