President Donald Trump spends too much time at properties owned by his company, including Mar-a-Lago, according to a new Quinnipiac poll.

Fifty-five percent of voters in the national survey had that opinion vs. 34 percent who did not. Half of voters say Trump does not spend enough time at the White House, while 2 percent say he spends too much time and 38 percent feel he’s hit the right amount.

Trump has visited Mar-a-Lago seven times and could soon shift visits to his golf property in New Jersey.

A total of 35 percent of American voters are “very comfortable” or “somewhat comfortable” with the amount spent on security so President Trump and his family can stay in  places other than the White House, while 60 percent are “not so comfortable” or “not
comfortable at all.”

The poll was conducted April 12-18 and includes 1,062 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
