Just out from Quinnipiac Polling:
President Donald Trump committed crimes before he became president, American voters say 64 – 24 percent in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today. Republicans say 48 – 33 percent that President Trump did not commit crimes before he was president, the independent Quinnipiac University National Poll finds. Every other listed party, gender, education, age and racial group says by wide margins that Trump committed crimes.
But U.S. voters are divided 45 – 43 percent on whether Trump committed any crimes while he has been president. A presidential candidate paying money to hide a negative story during a campaign, and not disclosing that payment, is unethical and a crime, 40 percent of voters say. Another 21 percent say it is unethical, but not a crime, and 20 percent say it is not unethical.
Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings against Trump, American voters say 59 – 35 percent. But Congress should do more to investigate “Michael Cohen’s claims about President Trump’s unethical and illegal behavior,” voters say 58 – 35 percent.
