Amer­i­cans think Trump will put coun­try first, sur­vey says

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — David Sherfin­ski

Most Amer­i­cans think Pres­i­den­t­elect Don­ald Trump will put coun­try over his fam­ily’s bot­tom line when deal­ing with for­eign lead­ers, ac­cord­ing to a Bloomberg poll re­leased Wed­nes­day.

A ma­jor­ity — 51 per­cent — said they’re “very” or “mostly” con­fi­dent Mr. Trump will put the coun­try’s best in­ter­ests ahead of his fam­ily’s fi­nances when deal­ing with for­eign lead­ers.

Mr. Trump’s fa­vor­a­bil­ity rating also hit 50 per­cent in the poll — up from 33 per­cent in Au­gust.

“The pub­lic seems to be giv­ing him a long leash,” said poll­ster J. Ann Selzer, who over­saw the sur­vey. “Most Amer­i­cans don’t seem con­cerned about him chang­ing po­si­tions that were the core of his cam­paign.”
