Almost two-thirds of registered voters think President Donald Trump committed crimes before becoming president — a truly staggering figure that shows that Trump may have damaged his critics but has done little to improve his own standing. According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday, nearly half of voters — 45% — think Trump committed crimes while serving as President. Nevertheless, as previously reported, Trump still holds overwhelming support among Republicans and a 46 percent favorability response.
The polls continue to show a mixed response to Michael Cohen with now roughly half believing him. However, voters seem to have a hardened view of Trump’s own criminality. According to the poll, 44% of registered voters thought Cohen told the truth during his testimony. Some 36% believe that he lied, which corresponds to Trump’s unmoving base.
