Poll: Voters Want Answers Re: Russia; Approve of Most Cabinet Appointments
Our latest national poll asked voters several questions regarding the Trump administration’s transition to the White House, as well as some of the issues surrounding the new administration.
When asked whether the US intelligence community should investigate allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, 51% of respondents indicated that an investigation should take place (45% said it should not).
Similarly, 51% of respondents indicated disapproval of President-elect Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns (43% approved).
Yet it wasn’t all bad news for the President-elect: 52% of respondents said they are confident that he will be able to serve as President without consideration for the family businesses (45% weren’t confident).
We also tested a few of the higher profile cabinet nominees, most of whom received reasonable support:
Perhaps surprisingly, Ben Carson receives the highest overall approval at 56%, while Betsy DeVos narrowly outpaces her disapproval by just one point.
