Most voters think Trump has committed serious crimes

A majority of voters believe former President Donald Trump has committed “serious federal crimes,” according to the latest New York Times/Siena College poll.

Fifty-three percent of likely voters said they believe this, while 39 percent of those surveyed said they did not believe that Trump committed serious crimes. Nine percent said they didn’t know or didn’t answer the question.

The numbers broken down by party affiliation show that 90 percent of Democrats believe he has committed serious crimes, while 17 percent of Republicans fall in this category. Forty-nine percent of independents shared this sentiment.

The new poll comes as jury selection will begin in Trump’s New York trial on Monday, setting the stage for an unprecedented presidential race. In what will be the first time a former U.S. president has gone to criminal trial, the next couple of months will place into focus the long-anticipated clash of Trump’s legal perils with his push to win back the White House. The former president is set to hold a rally in Pennsylvania Saturday evening, the last before court will hamper his ability to be on the campaign trail.
