While President Donald Trump claimed early Monday in a tweet that there was no “chaos” in his White House, voters disagree: 60 percent say the administration is running somewhat or very chaotically, compared with 33 percent who say it is running well.
That’s according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll conducted last Thursday through Saturday. The survey was conducted entirely prior to Monday’s ouster of Anthony Scaramucci from his position as White House communications director, and was already in the field when Reince Priebus left the chief of staff position.
In general, voters have a low opinion of how Trump’s White House is operating. Fewer voters, 29 percent, say Trump’s staff serves him well, compared with 39 percent who say his staff doesn’t serve him well.
Republican voter respondents have a much more positive impression of how Trump’s White House is operating: 63 percent say it is running well, though more than a third, 34 percent, say it is running chaotically. By comparison, very few Democrats (12 percent) or independents (25 percent) who participated say Trump’s White House is running well — with 80 percent of Democrats and 65 percent of independents saying it is beset by chaos.
