New Poll Shows Americans Divided Over Hush Money Case

A recent poll indicates that Americans hold divergent views regarding the likelihood of former President Trump being convicted in his New York hush money case.

According to The Economist/YouGov poll, 24 percent of Americans believe that the former president will be found guilty of a crime in the case.

According to the poll, 36 percent of respondents expressed doubt that the former president will be found guilty of a crime, while 39 percent were uncertain about the likelihood of his conviction.

According to the same survey, 43 percent of Americans believe that Trump should be found guilty of a crime in the case, while 37 percent have the opposite view and 20 percent are uncertain.

The trial for Trump’s hush money case in New York commenced on Monday, becoming the initial criminal prosecution involving an American president.

The ex-president is facing 34 charges of fabricating business records in connection with reimbursements made to his former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

These reimbursements were made to cover the $130,000 payment made to an adult film actress before the 2016 election, with the intention of keeping her silent about an alleged affair with Trump, which he denies.

The Economist/YouGov poll was conducted from April 14 to 16, with a margin of error of 3.2 percent and a sample size of 1,574 respondents.
