Historic mandate: A USA Today poll shows President-elect has less than a 41 percent approval rating

http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/poll-shows-president-elect-trumps-low-approval-rating
President-elect Donald Trump will take the oath of office in less than a month. A USA Today poll shows he has less than a 41 percent approval rating, significantly lower than previous president-elects. The poll also looked at President Obama's legacy and Mr. Trump's progress on unity. USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss what the polls show.

Trump's outrageous pro-Russia stance - in complete disregard of American national core interests.

History doesn't repeat itself, but it does echo. During the 1930's we saw the rise of several Fascist dictators across Europe. Now we see similar personalities fighting for political power. Difference with the 1930's -- we know better.

He talked about reducing the number of Moroccan immigrants living in the Netherlands. People loved it.

This could doom Trump in the Electoral College.
New intelligence shows that Putin became personally involved in the computer breach and directed how hacked material from Democrats was leaked, two senior U.S. officials say. Putin's objectives were multifaceted, a high-level intelligence source told NBC News. What began as a 'vendetta' against Hillary Clinton morphed into an effort to discredit American politics, especially among foreign allies.
