Ten days after his hype, a new poll shows that slightly more want Trump as president than Obama.
Morning Consult delivered the results of their poll, done with Politico, on Wednesday morning and reported: “When asked who they would rather see as president for the next four years, 45 percent said Trump while 44 percent said Obama.”

That is a slap at Obama, who has been in a policy tug-of-war with Trump and his tweets.
Obama in late December said, “I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I — if I had run again and articulated it — I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it.”
The poll did show that he had part of the equation right. He holds a five point election advantage over Trump, even though voters choose Trump as the president they want for the next four years.
Other highlights from the Morning Consult release:
— Voters Want Trump to Focus on Jobs and Healing the Country in Inauguration Speech. Some 75 percent said it is important to them that Trump mentions bringing manufacturing jobs back to U.S. from other countries in his inauguration speech, while 74 percent said it is important that he talks about healing the country after the election season.
