Shocking poll counts tell of a uniquely difficult course for the new commander-in-chief. And thats before the inevitable scandals start

Today marks the beginning of the end of Donald Trumps presidency.

It isnt wishful thinking to begin the countdown to Trumps self-destruction on his inauguration era. Its simply its declaration of the facts of presidential life: this is no longer video games played back on Tv and Twitter.

Everything changes when The Apprentice star takes the promise of office on that stagecoach outside the Capitol. Legally, politically and diplomatically, Trumps world is altogether transformed.

What delivered before as media outrage now has a discernible impact on his presidential canvas and by extension his presidential power.

What passed before as a sycophantic discussion with his own attorney now opens the door to endless case and the clear and present danger of being subjected to impeachment.

What transferred before as a curious cozying up to Vladimir Putin is now transformed into a multi-agency investigation into illegal foreign payments to subvert the election.

We should not confuse populism with popularity. Trump registers the Oval Office as the weakest brand-new commander-in-chief in living retention. Having “ve lost my” favourite election by nearly 3 million, he has no political authorization to speak of. And his disastrous poll counts are hard to overstate.

This is the high-water mark of every presidents permission ratings before they do the tough material of deciding and encounter one of the many fast-moving crisis that pass through the West Wing. At the high levels of his notoriety, Donald Trump is polling as badly as George W Bush at the end of his doomed presidency, after the disastrous collapse of economics and the brutal tragedy of the Iraq war.

A bumper cultivate of pre-inauguration ballots tell the story of how deeply unpopular the 45 th chairwoman is already. His personal popularity is as low as 32% compared to 61% favorability for President Obama.
