“Among Americans, Trump’s approval ratings have hit a record low, with 45% approving of Trump and 45% disapproving of him, according to Gallup,” reported Fortune magazine‘s Zamira Rahim.

Only 4 percent of Russians believe that Trump will be a “bad” president.

Former Pres. Barack Obama was viewed unfavorably by 81 percent of Russians, according to VTsIOM.

“Despite a general positive attitude toward the new U.S. administration, 55 percent of respondents opposed reducing Russia’s nuclear stockpile in return for the cancellation of sanctions,” said the Moscow Times.

The poll queried 1,800 respondents between Jan. 20 to 22. The margin of error, VTsIOM said, is under 2.5 percent.
