A new poll has revealed that a majority of Americans view the White House roles of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner as inappropriate.
According to the Quinnipiac University poll, 53 percent of the 1,062 voters asked think it is not appropriate for the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, to hold such a significant role in the White House. Thirty-six percent view her role, serving as an unpaid advisor to the president, as appropriate.
Respondents were largely divided along partisan lines on the question, with 71 percent of Republicans claiming that it is appropriate for Ivanka Trump to hold a significant role in the White House, and 16 percent of Democrats agreeing.
When asked about Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, who is a senior adviser to the president, 53 percent view his role in the White House as inappropriate, and 32 percent who see it as appropriate.
Fourteen percent of Democrats believe Kushner’s role is appropriate, with sixty-six percent of Republicans responding similarly.
The survey also found that 36 percent of voters view Ivanka Trump favorably, and 31 percent unfavorably. Kusher garnered 15 percent of voters viewing him as favorable, and 32 percent viewing him unfavorably.
Fifty percent admitted to not knowing enough about Kushner to form an opinion.
Quinnipiac University conducted the poll from April 12 to 18, noting a 3 percent margin of error.
