Poll: President Trump has higher favorability rating than Hillary Clinton

While only 41 percent of the 1,001 participants gave Trump a positive rating, just 39 percent did the same in regards to Clinton. Those expressing disfavor for Clinton included about one-fifth of those who said they voted for her in 2016.
