40% to 50% Say Trump Did It

4 in 10

A new AP-NORC poll finds only 4 in 10 adults “believe Donald Trump acted illegally in New York, where he has been charged in connection with hush money payments made to women who alleged sexual encounters.” “More — about half — believe he broke the law in Georgia, where he is under investigation for interfering in the 2020 election vote count.” “The poll finds about half feel similarly about his role in the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and his handling of classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago, which are both under investigation by the Justice Department.”

Keeping Track of the Trump Investigations

In case you’ve lost track, The Bulwark collects Donald Trump’s other legal problems in one place:

  • First, there is the investigation by the Department of Justice into the classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago.
  • Second, there is DOJ’s investigation of the effort to stymie the transfer of power following the 2020 election, including the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
  • Third is the investigation — led by Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, Georgia — into election fraud in that state, arising from Trump’s having asked the Georgia secretary of state to “find” enough votes to hand him an Electoral College win there.
  • Fourth is the set of investigations (some criminal, some civil) into Trump’s various corporate enterprises. The attorney general of New York state, Letitia James, and the district attorney of Manhattan, Alvin Bragg, have each been leading probes.
