Almost 40 percent of US citizens answering a survey think withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal would positively affect the economy of the United States, a Gallup poll revealed on Monday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On October 5, 12 countries of the Pacific Rim region reached an agreement on the wording and subject matter of the TPP deal, intended to deregulate trade among the signatories and cover 40 percent of the world economy.

According to the survey, 16 percent of US residents think that non-participation in the TPP will significantly improve the economy. Almost 25 percent of the respondents said that exit from the treaty would be somewhat effective.

There has been considerable opposition to TPP from international organizations and parliamentarians, who have criticized the deal’s secrecy during negotiations, its apparent favoring of multinational corporations and the exclusion of BRICS countries.
