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.
