The Political Atmosphere

When Mr. Trump takes office on Friday, he will be less popular than any new president in modern American history, according to a series of surveys published in recent days. The numbers suggest that rather than unifying a divided electorate, his transition to power has continued the polarization from the campaign.

Polls released on Tuesday by CNN and ORC and by The Washington Post and ABC News found that just 40 percent of Americans approved of the job Mr. Trump has been doing during the transition.

Mr. Trump’s aides say they have had that atmosphere in mind while planning the week’s festivities.

More than 60 Democrats in the House of Representatives have said they will not attend the ceremony — many of them citing Mr. Trump’s  recent criticism of Representative John Lewis, a civil rights icon.

The Swearing In

The official swearing-in ceremony is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. on Friday on the West Front of the Capitol overlooking the Mall. Most of the nation’s dignitaries will be on hand, including Mr. Trump’s presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton, and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
