The good news for Donald Trump: A lot fewer people think you’ll be a disaster as president than used to think that!

The bad news: People don’t like what they’ve seen so far. And even members of your own party continue to harbor major concerns about the man they’ve just elected.

A new poll from the Pew Research Center shows sharp drops – across the political spectrum – when it comes to those predicting the worst for Trump’s presidency. While in October 9 in 10 Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters said Trump would be a poor or terrible president, just 64 percent say that today. Among Republicans, that number has declined from 30 percent in March to just 10 percent today.

Clearly the doomsday scenarios have faded in people’s minds.

But the same poll suggests Trump isn’t getting great reviews so far and still has plenty to prove. It also suggests people still want him to change.

Overall, just 26 percent of Americans say Trump is a good role model, and more than 6 in 10 say he’s “reckless” and has “poor judgment.”
