Most Americans feel more comfortable with President-elect Donald Trump after Tuesday’s election, according to a recent Gallup poll.

The results show 51 percent of those surveyed said they are “more confident” in Trump, while 40 percent said they were less confident. Nine percent did not have a difference in opinion.

Nineteen percent of Hillary Clinton supporters now say they are more confident in Trump.

The percentage of adults who say they are more confident in Trump post election is on par with the percentage that felt the same about President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush.

Sixty percent of men say they are more confident in the president-elect, while 40 percent of women are more confident. Only 27 percent of minorities are more confident.

The survey was taken from 1,019 adults across the country from Nov. 9 through Nov. 13. The results have a plus or minus four percent margin of error.
