Almost 8 in 10 (78 percent) of conservative voters said they had a favorable view of the president.

"The unprecedented economic conflicts of this administration need to be visible to the American people, including any pertinent documentation which can reveal the foreign influences and financial interests which may put Donald Trump in conflict with the emoluments clause of the Constitution", reads the petition, which was created on the day of Trump's inauguration.
