President Obama is more popular than Donald Trump in one of America's reddest red states according to a poll issued by Fox News.

A new Fox News poll shows former President Barack Obama - a Democrat - has a higher favorability rating than Trump, a Republican in his first term in the White House. The poll shows Obama with a 52 percent favorability rating in Alabama compared to Trump's 49 percent. Obama had a 45 percent unfavorable rating in the poll; Trump had a 48 percent unfavorable rating. The numbers are a stark turnaround from each candidate's election totals in the state.

Alabama also ranks Congressional Democrats higher than Congressional Republicans.

Thirty-seven percent of those polled in the state said they approve of the job Democrats are doing in Congress, 6 percentage points higher than those who said Republicans were doing a good job.
