A majority of voters thinks it’s inappropriate for Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price to use private jets for official business, a new poll released Wednesday shows. 
 
Price has used a charter flight at least 26 times since May, totaling about $400,000, according to a series of Politico reports. 
 
The poll specifically asked voters about five private flights he took two weeks ago along the east coast. {mosads}
 
Sixty-four percent of voters said the flights were inappropriate, while 16 percent said they were appropriate, according to the Politico-Morning Consult poll. 
 
Still, many voters say they haven’t heard about the flights.
 
Only 18 percent said they’ve heard a lot about the news, while 25 percent said they heard some. 
 
President Trump, when asked about Price Wednesday, said he was “not happy” about the flights. 
 
Asked if he would fire Price, he replied: “We’ll see.” 
 
The poll surveyed 1,987 registered voters and has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
