NPR/Marist poll: US voters believe Trump's criminal investigations are fair

(MENAFN) According to a new NPR/Marist poll, the majority of United States voters reject former President Donald Trump's claims that he is the victim of a political witch hunt. The poll revealed that most Americans believe the various criminal investigations against him are fair, and over six in ten do not want him back in the White House. The survey found that almost half of United States voters, at 46 percent, believe that Trump is guilty of a crime, while an additional 29 percent say he has done something unethical, if not illegal. Only 23 percent of respondents believe that Trump has done nothing wrong.

Even among Republican voters, more than half, at 53 percent, believe that the former president did something unethical or illegal. Meanwhile, 74 percent of independents and 64% of white evangelical Christians say that Trump has committed misconduct or a crime. The poll results show that, despite the continued support from his base, Trump's claims of innocence are not widely accepted, and a significant portion of the United States population believes that he has committed wrongdoing.

Marist College polling chief Lee Miringoff noted that it is striking that white evangelical Christians are not as strongly behind Trump as they once were. This shift in support may be due to the multiple allegations of wrongdoing against the former president. The poll results highlight the continued division within the US electorate regarding Trump, with many Americans still holding negative views of the former president and his actions while in office.
