Most Want The Next President To Have Political Experience
Donald Trump's supporters like the fact that he has no political experience. He has never been elected to any political office at any level, and has never held any public service job. But while the GOP base may consider that an advantage, most Americans don't.
A majority of 55% say they want the next president to have political experience, while only 41% want an outsider with no political experience. That's a significant 14 point gap.
Chart was made with information in a new ABC News / Washington Post Poll -- done between July 11th and 14th of a random national sample of 1,003 adults, with a margin of error of 3.5 points.
