Poll Shows Possible Trump Conviction Would Not Aid Biden

Former President Donald Trump would not lose any significant support even if convicted of a crime in a court of law, according to a recent poll. The news came as the former president received significant support in a variety of polls, indicating that his presidential campaign may be gaining steam.

According to a recent Leger poll, the former president was leading with 46% to President Joe Biden’s 45%.

The same survey asked about whether people would change their vote if Trump was convicted of a crime. According to the poll, if Trump was found guilty and imprisoned, his support would fall to 37%.

Despite this, Biden would not gain any share of the vote. The president would receive 45% of the vote whether or not Trump was convicted or not. The same poll question found that 18% of the public said that they were not sure who they would vote for or select another candidate.

Furthermore, the survey found that if Trump was convicted but not imprisoned, his share of the vote would be 39%. However, Biden would actually lose support, with his support declining to 44%.

Another recent poll from Harvard-Harris also found that Biden would not gain significantly even if Trump was convicted of a crime.

According to the poll, if the former president was found guilty of having mishandled classified documents, he would receive 50% of the vote compared to Biden’s 50%. The same result was found when asking about whether or not there would be a difference regarding Trump’s efforts in the state of Georgia following the 2020 election.

Trump would receive 52% support if he was convicted of playing a role in the Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol.

The most recent result came as a CNN poll found that the former president built a significant lead over Biden.

A recent Rasmussen Reports survey found that Trump led Biden by 12%. In the poll, Trump received the support of 48% of the public while Biden trailed with 36%.
