Poll: More than half of US voters would rather have Obama as president

After just weeks into the new administration, a new survey has found that about half of voters in the U.S. wished Barack Obama was still in office.

This result was announced by a group called Public Policy Polling, or PPP, which asked registered voters at the end of January, "Who would you rather was President: Barack Obama or Donald Trump?"

Of the 725 participants, 52 percent responded with Obama, 43 percent preferred Trump, and 5 percent weren't sure.

The group's press release also revealed that 40 percent support Trump's impeachment.

However, slightly more—48 percent—said they would be against removing him from office.

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

The issues voters appeared most unhappy about included Trump's recent immigration order and his team's handling of it in addition to the growing influence of controversial adviser Steve Bannon.
