Public Now Believes Trump Campaign Had Improper And Illegal Dealings With Russian Officials During 2016 Election
It looks like the constant drip of revelations about dealings between the Trump campaign and Russian officials is having an effect on the public's view of people in the Trump administration.
A plurality of Americans think Donald Trump had improper dealings with the Russians (44%), and had illegal dealings with them (39%). It's even worse for other members of the administration.
A majority say Flynn, Kushner, Manafort, Sessions, and Donald Trump Jr. had both improper and illegal dealings with the Russians -- and about half believe Eric Trump did also.
These charts use information in a new Economist / YouGov Poll -- done between July 15th and 18th of a random national sample of 1,500 adults (including 1,273 registered voters), with a margin of error of 3 points.
The Trump administration is in deep trouble.
