The meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian attorney last spring was inappropriate, according to 52% of Americans polled in a recent Morning Consult/Politico survey. 25% had no opinion about it and 23% thought the meeting was appropriate.

Partisan breakdown: 44% of Republicans thought the meeting was appropriate compared to 24% who considered it inappropriate, Dems were 8% to 80% and Independents were 19% to 50%.

The Hillary factor: 5% of those questioned said they thought the meeting was appropriate only when the question specified that Don Jr. took the meeting in order to gain incriminating information on Hillary Clinton.
