Quinnipiac Poll: Most Believe Trump Committed Crimes Before Taking Office

President Donald Trump speaks to the National Association of Attorneys General Monday

That's slightly lower than a Wall Street Journal poll also released Tuesday that revealed 46 percent of respondents approved of the job Trump is doing.

The ex-fixer's claims that Trump directed him to pay off women and gave him verbal cues that he wanted him to lie about his business interests in Russian Federation has almost two-thirds of potential voters president committed crimes before he took office.

American voters trust Michael Cohen more than President Trump, according to a new Quinnipiac poll. Every other listed party, gender, education, age and racial group says by wide margins that Trump committed crimes. "When two-thirds of voters think you have committed a crime in your past life, and nearly half of voters say it's a toss-up over whether you committed a crime while in the Oval Office, confidence in your overall integrity is very shaky", Tim Malloy, assistant director of Quinnipiac University, said in a statement. Another way is that less than one quarter believe he didn't.

A total of 58 percent of Americans want Congress to keep probing for evidence, however the survey said, suggesting that Trump is not out of the woods yet.

US voters are divided 45 - 43 percent on whether Trump committed any crimes while he has been president.

Instead of rest, and in a somewhat surprising decision, Woods travelled directly to Mexico to play in the WGC Mexico Championship. He did make sure to note that his injury is not considered long-term.

A majority of U.S voters believe President Trump committed a crime when he was a private citizen - including about a third of Republicans. A third way is that some percentage of Americans both believe the president committed crimes before he took office and approve of the job he's doing.

50 percent believe Cohen more than Trump, compared to 35 percent who believe Trump.

Still, it seems these voters who think Trump has committed crimes aren't quite ready for impeachment yet. Forty-three percent said he hasn't, while another 12 percent weren't sure. Eighty-six percent of Democrats chose Cohen - who is about to head to jail for lying to Congress. 35 percent say they shouldn't.

For now, this merely points to the fact that the House Democratic investigation that Trump's toadies went so intergalactic over is in fact a reflection of mainstream public opinion.
