Mary L. Trump, a clinical psychologist and President Donald Trump’s niece, plans to publish a memoir called “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” The publisher, Simon & Schuster, is advertising it as a “revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him.” But are Americans interested in reading it?

Data from YouGov finds that 41 percent of Americans say they’re interested in reading Mary Trump’s book.

Democrats (51%) are more likely than Independents (38%) and Republicans (34%) to say they’re interested in reading the book when it is released next week. Just over half (54%) of Republicans say they are not interested in reading this book.

Additional data from YouGov Profiles suggests that readers who like books on politics and social science (50%) are especially likely to say they’re interested in reading Mary Trump’s book. Readers who tend to enjoy biographies/memoirs (47%) are also more likely to say they are interested in the upcoming book.

After facing some challenges in court, the book is slated for release on July 14, 2020.
