President-elect Donald Trump is growing on slightly more than half of Americans one week after his election, according to a new Gallup poll released Wednesday.

The boost is similar to the numbers seen by both Bill Clinton in 1992 and George W. Bush in 2000 following their elections.

Here are the numbers:

Donald Trump:

  • More confident: 51 percent
  • Less confident: 40 percent
  • No difference/no opinion: 9 percent

George W. Bush:

  • More confident: 54 percent
  • Less confident: 28 percent
  • No difference/no opinion: 18 percent

Bill Clinton:

  • More confident: 53 percent
  • Less confident: 26 percent
  • No difference/no opinion: 21 percent

Forty percent of voting age Americans were less confident in Trump, far higher than the 28 and 26 percent for Bush and Clinton respectively, but that results from more people having a firm opinion. Only 9 percent say they feel no differently or have no opinion of Trump post-election, while more than twice that many felt that way for Bush and Clinton.

Trump's favorable rating in the same survey was 42 percent, lower than Bush's at 59 percent and Clinton's at 58 percent at the same point.

Naturally, people who actually voted for Trump feel more confident about him than do those who voted for his rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Ninety-five percent of Trump voters are "more confident" in Trump while only 19 percent of Clinton voters are. Only 2 percent of Trump voters were less confident, and 75 percent of Clinton voters were.

Men and whites were more confident in Trump than women and non-whites.

The poll talked to a random sample of adults age 18 and older from Nov. 9 to 13. The margin of error is ±4 percentage points.
