However, unlike past candidates who have pledged to shrink the federal government, Donald Trump can show that he has already delivered with the result of the recent survey by Government Business Council that found at roughly 1-in-4 federal employees would consider leaving their jobs if Donald Trump is elected president.
Some 14 percent said they would definitely leave while 11 percent said they might leave.
Trump could actually gain votes by highlighting study. After all, during the Reagan terms, the federal workforce increased by about 324,000 to almost 5.3 million people. Trump can promise a reduction of 17 percent by just getting elected.
