Six New Polls Show Donald Trump Is The Most Disliked President-Elect In Modern Times. Trump Says All The Polls Are "Rigged" (TWEET & CHART)

If the numbers hold Donald Trump will enter the office as the most unpopular of at least the last seven newly elected presidents.

Here is a quick list and breakdown of the polls and their numbers...

According to a Monmouth University poll released today, with less than a week to go before he takes office, only 34 percent of Americans view Donald Trump favorably. This is compared to 46 percent who have a negative opinion of him,

In a Washington Post/ABC News poll only 40 percent of respondents approve of the way Trump has handled the post-election transition and 54 percent disapproving.

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds 54 percent of adults saying that they are either uncertain (25 percent) or pessimistic and worried (29 percent) about how Trump will perform during his presidency, compared with 45 percent with either an optimistic and confident view (22 percent) or a satisfied and hopeful view (23 percent).

According to a new CNN/ORC Poll Trump will take the oath of office Friday with an approval rating of just 40%, the lowest of any recent president and 44 points below that of President Barack Obama.

There were also polls released late last week that mirror the numbers of those just released.

According to a Gallup poll released last Friday, more than half of people said they “disapprove” of Mr. Trump’s transition performance with just 44 percent expressing approval of the president-elect.

And last week's Quinnipiac poll showed Trump's favorable rating stood at 37 percent which is where it stood for much of the campaign.

Just to give you a point of reference here is a chart of the Approve/Disapprove numbers of the last three sitting Presidents...

Not having possession of the ability to take criticism or accept reality Trump took to Twitter to cast doubt on all of the polls declaring his low approval ratings by calling the pollsters “wrong” and the polls “rigged”...

In a final bit of irony the previously mentioned Quinnipiac poll asked their respondence if they believed Trump should be made to relinquish his twitter account to which they responded by an overwhelming 64% percent that the president-elect should shut down @realDonaldTrump...
