One of Mr Kelly's first moves was to ask the President to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his role as communications director, an early sign that Mr Kelly intends to get the house in order.
The document floated the idea of a "complaint box" for members of the media to air their grievances. Visit his blog, The American Situation. He's the fourth general the president has named to a senior post in this administration. In one; the self-described "Wall Street guy" seems to take a page out of his future boss's book, referencing a company with a "yuge" investment on a particular stock.
Kelly also made it clear that everyone in the staff - including Bannon, Ivanka Trump and Kushner - would clear policy proposals, personnel recommendations and advice from outsiders through him.
The conservative poll has generally shown approval ratings higher than those of other surveys, but the new poll places it in line with the findings of other surveys like Gallup, which has Trump's approval at 38 percent.

The two-sentence press release concluded: "We wish him all the best". Trump has been critical of China, North Korea's closest ally, saying it should do more to rein in Pyongyang. Kim Jong-un is undoubtedly asking where's his bribe to "stop" his nuclear program. There is tremendous cooperation between Tehran and Pyongyang in nuclear and missile technology.
Attorney General, Jeff Sessions remains top of the list for the next person to see the exit door. He is a good and decent man.
