Americans expect Trump's policies to favor the rich

President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team are in the process of filling Cabinet and other high-level positions for the new administration. Gary Cohn, president of Goldman Sachs, is Trump’s choice for director of the National Economic Council.

Americans widely expect Donald Trump’s presidency to benefit the wealthy, according to a HuffPost/YouGov survey released on Tuesday, although those who voted for him believe he’ll be more egalitarian.

A 44 percent plurality of respondents expect Trump’s economic policies to mostly favor the rich, with 15 percent saying he’ll favor the middle class, 2 percent that he’ll favor the poor, and 18 percent believing that he’ll treat all groups equally.

Yet more than three-quarters of Trump’s supporters expect him to work mostly for the middle class or to treat all groups equally, with just 6 percent believing he’ll help the rich.
