I wonder why this is?

March 5, 2019 - 64 Percent Of U.S. Voters Say Trump Committed A Crime, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; President Gets Mixed Grades For North Korea

Quinnipiac University Polling Logo

Sample and Methodology detail

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 (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) 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.

American voters believe Cohen more than Trump 50 - 35 percent. Cohen told the truth, 44 percent of voters say, while 36 percent say he did not tell the truth.

Voters approve 41 - 36 percent of the way Democrats in Congress handled Cohen's testimony before the U.S. House Oversight Committee. Voters disapprove 51 - 25 percent of the way Republicans handled the Cohen hearing.

"Cloudy and 38. The future of Donald Trump's presidency and the percentage of people who support him mirror the March weather in D.C.," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"The answers to two survey questions deliver a double-barreled gut punch to the honesty question."

"When two-thirds of voters think you have committed a crime in your past life, and almost half of voters say it's a tossup over whether you committed a crime while in the Oval Office, confidence in your overall integrity is very shaky," Malloy added.

"Add to that, Michael Cohen, a known liar headed to the big house, has more credibility than the leader of the free world."

American voters give Trump a negative 38 - 55 percent job approval rating, compared to a negative 38 - 57 percent in a January 29 Quinnipiac University National Poll.

Look they're all the mob.
I see Cohen as a the Kevin Weeks of this Trump saga. (Weeks testified against Whitey Bulger) , only instead of murder Trump family crimes were just money laundering, and stupidity.

And this results will be the same...

Majority of of voters think Clinton committed crime with email server: poll

Quote:
A majority of respondents in a new poll believe that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton committed a crime by using private email server to conduct State Department business.

A Rasmussen Reports poll published on Tuesday finds that 64 percent of likely U.S. voters say Clinton likely broke the law when she sent and received classified emails through her personal server while serving as secretary of State.


Just 30 percent said it was "unlikely" that Clinton violated the law. Nineteen percent of Democratic voters in the poll said it was "very likely" that the 2016 Democratic nominee for president had committed a crime.
What I find reassuring is that more people thin Hillary committed crimes than Trump...EVEN THOUGH the mainstream media did all they can to hide anything about Hillary while attacking Trump with fake news...s

what crimes did hillary commit? I'll help you to the answer ZERO.

the even worse travesty is that the media did everything they could to elect trump and beat on Hillary. FACTS.

The even worse travesty than that is that they are still making the same mistakes they did in 2016. I know this because you are still parroting the same brainwashed bull**** you learned back then..

I was pretty active on several online boards/groups whose members were predominantly Democrats and Obama supporters and I don’t recall a single time that anyone brought up McCain after 2008 or Romney after 2012 as a defense of Obama. Hillary does not matter. She’s not the president.

Hillary kept government property after she resigned from Sec. of State...They were not turned over for more than 2+ years, and were only turned over when she was found to be using a private server for government use...This is not in dispute...

Hillary's private server contained classified information, which is blatantly illegal...This is not in dispute...

Those two, right there, are worth time in jail...

Public opinion polls are just that. A wet finger in the wind of current public opinion. A malleable measure at best, mob mentality at it's worst.

Nothing to do with truth. When do polls matter in the case of truth and facts?

That's right, and that is why Democrats and the media attack him 24/7.

Republicans didn't cry everyday about being cheated. She is still part of the equation. And she is still being protected from her crimes.
