January 5, 2017 Updated: January 5, 2017

A new poll has revealed that 57 percent of Democrats and 73 percent of voters from all sides of the political spectrum want President-elect Donald Trump to succeed.

Rasmussen Reports also found that some 39 percent of likely U.S. voters think Trump’s presidency will be a “success,” and 30 percent believe it will be a “failure.” Another 26 percent think it “will fall somewhere in between the two” options, the poll said.

Among Republicans, 67 percent believe Trump will succeed and 17 percent of Democrats think the same, the poll found. Thirty-five percent of independent voters think that his presidency will be a success.

About 52 percent of Democrats believe Trump will fail while only 7 percent of Republicans and 28 of independents think the same.

“But 57% of Democrats want Trump’s presidency to be a success. Of course, that compares to 91% of Republicans and 73% of unaffiliated voters. Twenty-six percent (26%) of voters in Hillary Clinton’s party want Trump to fail, while another 17% are undecided,” Rasmussen Reports stated. “Among all voters, 73% want Trump’s presidency to be a success; 14% want it to fail, and 12% are not sure.”

To get the results, pollsters surveyed 1,000 likely voters between Jan. 3 and Jan. 4—with a margin of error of 3 percentage points and a 95 percent level of confidence.

Trump will take office during Inauguration Day on Jan. 20, which is also President Barack Obama’s last day in office.
