Most Say Trump Uses Cabinet Less Than Other Presidents

President Trump’s Cabinet seems to have a revolving door at times, but then most voters agree this president doesn’t depend on his Cabinet like the majority of his predecessors.

Ninety-two percent (92%) of Likely U.S. Voters think a president’s Cabinet choices are important to the success of his administration, with 63% who say they are Very Important, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey. These views have changed very little in surveys since October 2008. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
