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.

In other words, 2/3rds have been successfully brainwashed by the MSM.
There again, WHAT CRIMES exactly? BS!
“A person on average commits 3 felonies a day and doesnt even know.”
There was a good article here on FR about this a few days ago. We have so many stupid crazy laws.
I would have answered in the affirmative. But that is true of anyone that rises to the level of membership in the congress or business.
I’ve said for years that there are three kinds of leaders:
1. Those that do everything by the book. They remain at the bottom.
2. Those that break the rules at the wrong time. They get fired or arrested.
3. Those that break the rules at the right time. They become CEO’s and presidents.
And with our stack of laws reaching to the moon, who HASN’T broken the law?
This is weird because I think that two thirds of everybody who works for Quinnipiac committed crimes before they went to work there and I’m as smart as anyone THEY polled.
Q poll is as unbiased as CNN poll SARC
Trump was under the microscope of the media in NYC, the center of the media universe, for DECADES before he ran for President.
If there were anything there, we would have heard about it loooooooooong before the campaign.
From Newsweek, Nov 3rd, 2016: “ A number of Quinnipiac University polls released on Tuesday also put Clinton ahead in four key swing states. In Florida, Clinton has 46 percent to Trumps 45 percent; in Ohio she leads by 46 percent to Trumps 41 percent; and in Pennsylvania she leads Trump 48 percent to 43 percent. In North Carolina, Clinton has 47 percent support to Trump’s 44 percent.” whoops!
I cannot imagine anyone with an ounce of intelligence paying ANY attention to polls after the 2016 election.
Proof that we the sheeple of America are led by their master the mighty TV instead of their intellect.
It takes effort to live in freedom.
Is this man:
NEVER EVER FORGET.....everthing is being thrown at us today by the Socialists/Marxist Dem's, covering for elected like Omar who hates Jews and is on a Muslim mission from our government, to twits like AOC and Pelosi who has lost her grip and the fake MSM....recognize the propaganda being hurled at the Republicans and Independents....President Trump is the strong man, the real American for this time...POTUS is doing a really, really excellent job in-spite of the critics who pound him 24/7 with senseless and rude propaganda. (WALKAWAY!)
What a B.S. poll.
If theyd have tried that crap under Obama, places would have burned to the ground.
And they believe this because?......ABC,CBS,NBC, CNN... said so.
Sad and pathetic what this country has become.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”
Meme: Every businessman commits crimes. The capitalists are corrupt.
Did 80% think Hillary is a crook?
This is getting to be a REALLY STUPID COUNTRY!
Why would this question even be polled?
It’s beyond stupid and I don’t even need to look it up to know that they never asked this question about any previous President.
I propose that Quinnipiac be put on FR’s banned list as enemy propaganda.
With constant repetition of Goebbels-like propaganda on steroids coupled with the power and reach of today’s media, internet, Marxist/fascist socialist democrat party, corrupt government institutions, etc, they can get the gullible to believe almost anything. Open borders, globalism, socialism, equality of outcome, 57 genders, global warming, climate change, etc, etc, etc. So they’re doing a full-court propaganda press on Trump. What else is new?
Just further proof of how effective the msm is in using their brainwashing techniques...
