6:04 P.M. Some 46 percent of Americans agree with Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump in saying that paying no federal taxes is "smart," according to a new poll released by Reuters. A majority responded that finding ways to avoid taxes, legal or illegal is "selfish," or "unpatriotic."
The poll comes after leaked pages of Trump's tax returns revealed that he lost just shy of one billion dollars in 1995, a filing that could have allowed him to avoid paying income taxes for as many as 18 years. Trump maintains that taking advantage of legal loopholes to avoid paying taxes shows his intelligence in business dealings.
