Most Voters Already Expected President Trump Scandals


It's been a dramatic week in DC. No matter what your political allegiance, the events and revelations surrounding the Trump administration of late have been increasingly worrying. As this infographic shows though, we probably shouldn't be too surprised.

A Morning Consult survey conducted in October, before the election, shows that the majority of voters were already concerned about scandals such as the breaking of security protocols when it comes to handling classified information.

Equally though, there were similar concerns regarding Trump's election opponent, Hillary Clinton. Presumably due to the email scandal, 66 percent of respondents in the survey said they were concerned about the presidential hopeful's use of classified information if she were to make it into office.
