With several of President-elect Donald Trump’s picks for top administration posts set to undergo confirmation hearings this week, Morning Consult survey data shows many¬†of his choices, but not all, are viewed favorably by voters.

While most of Trump’s choices are generally unknown — a plurality of voters either didn’t know or had no opinion about most of the picks — the numbers show a preference for nominees with a history of public service.

Correction: The chart in a previous version of this story incorrectly characterized which posts are under consideration, and the story misstated the number of individuals with confirmation hearings scheduled for this week.
