Donald Trump is against net neutrality
. He calls it an Obama conspiracy...!
The vast majority of voters -- of Republicans
-- favor net neutrality.
Donald Trump wants rid of the EPA, which he calls the "Department of Environmental."
Taken literally, Trump’s proposal to abolish EPA is a recipe for dirty air and legal chaos. EPA doesn’t just invent its regulations out of thin air. It is the agency charged with implementing laws such as the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, which have been passed by Congress. It studies pollutants that are harmful to human health, writes rules to curb those pollutants, and monitors compliance. If Congress abolished EPA but did not repeal the laws that require the federal government to limit pollution, the result would be total incoherence. The government would have legal obligations it could not meet.
view the EPA favorably. I think that the Flint episode has reminded us all of the need for regulation.
Donald Trump wants to abolish the Food and Drug Administration. The majority of Republicans who expressed an opinion in this poll favor keeping it
. In other polls, Americans strongly believe that the FDA should regulate things like e-cigarettes. If voters were reminded of how things were in the days before meat inspection, I suspect that FDA would have nearly unanimous favorability. (In today's fractured society, nothing is 100% popular.)
Trump's policies, if enacted, would result in a $5.3 trillion deficit
. He's running against the wife of the only President to balance the budget. The majority of voters consider deficit reduction
extremely important. The vast majority favor increasing taxes on those with very high incomes. Trump will cut taxes for the wealthy.
We've all heard about Trump's racism, his draconian approach to immigration, his arrogance and his overall ignorance. Isn't it about time we mention other things as well?
