Poll: Voters agree Trump's business interests will affect his governing

A Morning Consult/POLITICO survey conducted Dec. 8-11 found that 81 percent of voters say it is likely Trump will take actions to benefit his businesses when he becomes president next month. And while there is much agreement there, voters were split along partisan lines on whether it was good or bad for his business interests to affect his decision-making as president: 39 percent of voters said it was mainly a good thing, including 73 percent of Republicans, and 44 percent said it was mainly a bad thing, including 73 percent of Democrats…

Nearly 8 in 10 voters (79 percent) said it was important for Trump to remove himself from the operations of his businesses before Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. That figure isn’t limited to Democrats, either. While 86 percent of Democrats said Trump should be separated from his businesses, 76 percent of Republicans said they agreed.
