As the Morning Joe panel discusses a post-election poll from Bloomberg Politics that shows President-elect Donald Trump’s favorability has risen to 51 percent since August 2015, senior contributor Mike Barnicle says: “I think it’s helpful to stop this hand-wringing. We don’t know what’s going to happen. We don’t know where the Trump presidency is going to go. But this is still the United States of America. Let’s have a little hope that things will be okay.” Listen to more of the panel’s discussion here and comments made by Vice President Joe Biden in regard to Trump at the previous night’s Ripple of Hope Awards Dinner, which honored Biden.
