Trump Is Polling at Historic Low, but a Plan to Use Tolls to Pay for Infrastructure Polls Even Lower

ABC News reports, “Donald Trump enters office as the most unpopular of at least the last seven newly elected presidents, a new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds.” The report adds that, in terms of policy goals, “Opposition peaks, at 66 percent, to another idea, providing tax breaks for privately funded roads, bridges and transportation projects that would then charge tolls for people who use them.”

The Washington Post’s report takes note of Trump’s plan to set up a new panel chaired by real estate developers Steven Roth and Richard LeFrak to review “how the $1 trillion he expects to raise” for infrastructure projects will be spent.
