Poll Shows Most Republicans Support Trump After Conviction

A poll taken after the guilty verdict against former President Donald Trump was announced showed that a large majority of Republicans still plan to support him in November. The same poll showed that most independents do not believe he should drop out and that a sliver of Republicans were affected by the judgment.

According to the Reuters/Ipsos poll taken after the verdict, 56% of Republican voters said that the verdict would not affect their vote and that 35% were more likely to support the former president.

Another 10% said that they would be less likely to support Trump after the felony conviction.

Furthermore, most independents said that the verdict would not impact their voting choice. A full 56% expressed the sentiment, while 25% said that the verdict would make them less likely to vote for Trump and 18% said it made them more likely.

Voters also split on the question of whether or not the case was fair or not. A small majority of 52% said that the prosecution was mainly about the law, while 46% argued that it was more political in nature.

The former president held a press event Friday, where he was greeted by a significant crowd.

During the event, the former president denied all wrongdoing and cited his concerns with the judge and the prosecution. He called New York Judge Juan Merchan “conflicted” and said that many people in business have non-disclosure agreements.

Trump also argued that the charges would not have been brought up against anyone but himself. He also argued that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) was determined to prosecute him.

The former president also argued that the case was election interference and that he was leading in recent polls. He cited one poll taken after the verdict that had him up by 6%.

He promised to appeal the case and said that he would not stop fighting.

The verdict followed accusations surrounding an alleged brief relationship between Trump and former adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
