Bloomberg has just conducted an interesting national poll aiming to see where Americans stand on numerous issues relating to Donald Trump. One of the key areas of the poll was looking at how Americans feel about Trump’s potential conflicts of interest. While two-thirds of those in the US say that he needs to choose between being a businessman or president, 69% believe it is going too far to make him selloff his businesses before taking office. 51% of those surveyed said they believed he would put the nation’s best interests ahead of his own family’s finances when dealing with foreign leaders. Trump has said he is going to cut ties with his businesses, and has scheduled a December 15th conference to explain how he will do it.
FINSUM: The media has been making a very large guffaw about Trump’s conflicts of interests, but this survey shows a more sophisticated picture of how Americans feel.
