Most Donald Trump voters unfazed by tape relevations

in 2017 by

YouGov surveys in Pennsylvania and Ohio find that the vast majority of those who said they would vote for Donald Trump earlier in the week are unmoved about by lewd tapes of Trump made public on Friday afternoon.

“In both states, only 8% of Trump’s supporters who have heard about the tape say the revelations have made them think worse of the candidate, while 2% say they now think better of Trump. The remaining Trump voters (91% in Ohio and 90% in Pennsylvania) say the tapes have had no impact on their view of Trump.”

Meanwhile, a new Politico/Morning Consult poll finds that just 39% of voters think Trump should end his presidential campaign, while only slightly more voters, 45%, think he should not drop out.

But voters are largely viewing Trump’s comments through their own partisan lens: 70% of Democrats say Trump should end his campaign, but just 12% of Republicans — and 13% of female Republicans — agree.
