Most Americans think President-elect Donald Trump will do a good job in office and four in 10 say they have a lot of confidence in him to deal with the economy, according to a poll released Tuesday.

Fifty-three percent said they think Mr. Trump will do a “very” or “fairly” good job as president, according to the CNN/ORC poll.

And 40 percent say they have a lot of confidence in Mr. Trump to handle the economy, which outpaces where recent presidents were ahead of when they took office.

Mr. Trump also has hit a high point in favorability in CNN/ORC polling; 47 percent said they have a favorable view, and 50 percent said they have an unfavorable view.

Almost three-quarters said Mr. Trump is likely to repeal and replace Obamacare, and two-thirds said they think he’ll renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

About half of respondents say Mr. Trump will “drain the swamp” and reduce corruption in Washington, D.C., defeat the Islamic State terrorist group, and build a U.S.-Mexico border wall.
