Democrats Hot for Trump’s Tax Records, Others A Lot Less So

Voters still think presidential candidates should make their tax returns public and that President Trump is no exception. But there’s much less interest in those records than there was in 2016, and most voters say their vote next year doesn’t turn on whether Trump’s tax returns are released.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that all presidential candidates should release their tax returns, but that’s down from 67% in August 2016. Thirty-seven percent (37%) disagree, while 12% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
