Joe Biden's Approval Rating Is Already Higher Than Donald Trump's Last Four Years
President-elect Joe Biden is already more popular among US citizens than President Trump ever was over the last four years of his presidency.
The new Gallup poll found that Biden currently has a 55 per cent favourable rating and a 41 per cent unfavourable rating, while the same poll gave President Donald Trump a 42 per cent favourable rating and a 57 per cent unfavourable rating.
According to CNN, Biden's rating right now looks similar to Barack Obama's heading into his second term back in 2013, while Trump has apparently never recorded more than 50 per cent favourability in a live interview poll, such the one carried out by Gallup.
It comes following the news that Joe Biden was the first Presidential candidate in US election history to win more than 80 million votes in an election.
The Cook Political Report has noted the Democratic politician won 51 per cent of the ballots in the 2020 Election, with the final votes from New York's Erie County helping push him into the record breaking number.
By comparison, Trump won 47.1 per cent of the ballot, which equates to around 73.8 million votes.
Not willing to concede, there are now whispers that Trump is considering skipping Joe Biden's inauguration on 20 January next year.
According to Axios, the outgoing US President's fondness for the spotlight could result in him making the drastic move - which hasn't been seen in American politics in decades - as he may instead choose to host a MAGA rally in Florida.
The Trump campaign team has declined to comment on the proposal, which would see Trump exit the White House and travel on Air Force One for a made-for-television special.
The move would likely pull viewers away from President-elect Biden's moment in the spotlight in Washington DC, with Axios claiming Trump could announce his intention to run for president in 2024.
The news organisation reported: "Flying off from the South Lawn before landing in Florida would let Trump escape protests, the normal pleasantries of welcoming the incoming president to the White House - and sitting there while Biden takes the oath of office.
"The Trump talk could create a split-screen moment: the outgoing president addressing a roaring crowd in an airport hangar while the incoming leader is sworn in before a socially distanced audience outside the Capitol."
NBC reported Trump doesn't plan on inviting the Bidens to the White House or even call him.
