Americans think Trump will put country first, survey says
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.”
