A new Washington Post/ABC News poll shows Donald Trump is the least popular incoming president in at least four decades.
The results show that 54 percent of Americans have an unfavorable impression of Trump, compared to 40 percent who view him favorably.
Since 1977, the second-highest rating for unfavorable impression upon entering office belongs to George W. Bush in 2001 at 36 percent.
Trump tweeted his response Tuesday, saying the poll was "rigged."
The same people who did the phony election polls, and were so wrong, are now doing approval rating polls. They are rigged just like before.
