First exit polls: 55 percent of voters disapprove of Trump — 47 percent 'strongly'

Hopefully this is a good harbinger.

From The Hill:

About 44 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 55 percent disapprove, according to exit polls as reported by CNN. About 47 percent of all voters say they “strongly disapprove” of the Trump presidency.

These numbers are worse than Obama’s approval ratings in 2010, when the Republicans rode a big red Tea Party wave to big electoral gains.

The preliminary numbers are similar to those of exit polls gauging support former President Barack Obama in 2010, the first midterm cycle of his presidency, in which 45 percent of voters approved of the job he was doing and 54 percent disapproved. Republicans gained a massive haul of 63 seats in the House that year, taking the control of the chamber, and won six additional seats in the Senate, cutting down the Democratic majority from 59-41 to 53-47.

Keep your fingers crossed, Kossacks.
