Nearly two-thirds believe in allegations
The survey results follow a turbulent phase for the president and his government, in which allegations of extramarital affairs and cover-ups have swirled and several members of Trump's Cabinet and his team of Top consultants have experienced their own scandals or were completely replaced.

Trump's Team Receives Bad Grades
Trump's cabinet and high-level government offices perform poorly relative to previous job entrants in terms of their work skills, ability to empathize with the public, and preparedness to use their positions for personal purposes and misuse taxpayers' money. And the public is divided as to whether it brings new perspectives to its positions or cuts down on wasteful government spending and bureaucracy.
About half say Trump's agents are less qualified than their predecessors, that they are meeting the needs and problems of people like you and that they are more likely to use their positions for personal gain.
