Jon Cohen, chief research officer at Survey Monkey, gives Axios readers a first look at data from an online poll of 3,405 adults, taken Thursday through Sunday:

  • 55% disapprove of Trump's military transgender troops ban.
  • Anthony Scaramucci: 15% approve, 37% disapprove, 48% no opinion.
  • Among Republicans, 80% approve of the way Trump is handling health-care policy; approval of Congress has cratered to 40%, from 69% before Memorial Day.

The Spicer part: 32% want him to stay out of the spotlight, 19% percent want a tell-all book, 11% say "get an attorney," 8% want him on "Dancing with the Stars," 6% want him on cable news. Write-ins: "speak with Mueller," "sell shoes." One said: "don't have tv....not sure who he is."
