Nearly two-thirds of registered voters think President Donald Trump committed crimes before assuming the presidency, according to a new poll taken in the days after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen testified to Congress.
According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday, 64% of registered voters said Trump had committed crimes before entering office and nearly half of voters 45% think he committed crimes while serving as President.
Despite Trumps massive popularity in the GOP, even a third of Republicans said Trump had engaged in criminal activity before his presidency. The poll showed that 89% of Democrats and 65% of independents thought Trump had committed crimes before taking office.
Republicans were the only demographic group without a majority who believed Trump broke the law before he was President.
Voters were more split on whether Trump had committed crimes during the presidency 45% said they think he has and 43% said they think he has not engaged in criminal activity.
In bombshell testimony last week, Cohen alleged among other things that the President had directed him to pay hush money to kill negative stories about the then-presidential candidate, something most voters in the poll frowned upon.
According to the poll, 73% of registered voters said paying to hide a negative story about a presidential candidate without disclosing it is unethical, including a little more than half of Republicans.
However, a smaller share of voters said they believed that act was also illegal 40% of registered voters said paying to kill negative stories, and not disclosing it, is both unethical and a crime. The poll showed 21% said it was unethical but not criminal, and 20% didnt think it was unethical at all.

I’ll bet every voter committed some crime before Trump was elected.
Lemme guess....Survey sample= 50% Rat,35% Republican,15% “Independent”.
Even if I thought that, which I don’t, I would still vote for him over any of the commies in the dem party or the commie-loves in the rep party.
The Q poll is a joke.
The media, Hollywood and schools have been pushing this LIE for 2 years-—Gee, guess what happens?
“Quinnipiac” An old Indian name that means Communist $hithole!
A person on average commits 3 felonies a day and doesn’t even know.
Within the last hour I've failed to come to a complete stop at a stop sign...and dropped a small piece of paper on the sidewalk...and crossed a street when it said "Don't Cross".
The pinkos in the so-called “news” media must be proud of their successful brainwashing campaign.
I wonder what the results would be if Hillary was the one asked about?
You beat me to it.
Ask that Q about EVERY billionaire. Ask it in NYC about Bloomie and I dont believe the numbers will be much different.
Anybody who believes polls after the 2016 is just getting fooled. Polls are engineered to force you to accept their way of thinking. Quinnipiac University, the author of this poll, is questionable. Are they not one of the polls that predicted Hillary Clinton was way ahead of Donald Trump, that Trump had no chance?
I wonder what the poll had to say about 0bama hiding the picture of him smiling with Farrakhan, and hiding the video of the party with a Palestinian (which still remains hidden).
I guess the media never bothered to poll things like that.
