Trump Poll Results Shows Trump’s Base Remains Loyal Despite Ongoing Legal Probes
A Trump poll released by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist has found that the majority of Americans believe that former President Donald Trump has done something illegal or unethical.
The Trump poll survey was conducted from March 20 through March 23. The survey questioned 1,327 adults and found that 46% of national adults believe that Trump has done something illegal, while 29% think he has done something unethical but not illegal. Meanwhile, just 23% of Americans believe that Trump has done nothing wrong, NPR reported.
The Trump poll survey also found that 56% of respondents think the probes into Trump are fair, while 41% view them as a “witch hunt.” It’s worth noting that 80% of Republicans believe that the investigations are a “witch hunt,” while just 10% of Republicans think that Trump has done something illegal.

Trump is currently being investigated by the Manhattan district attorney, the New York attorney general, the Department of Justice, and the DA in Fulton County, Ga. The probes are ongoing at the local, state, and federal levels.
The Trump poll results come after he held the first official rally of his 2024 presidential campaign in Waco Texas. Despite his loss to President Joe Biden in 2020, Trump is currently the clear frontrunner in the Republican primary field, which so far includes just a small handful of other declared candidates.
Trump’s favorability split has seen little meaningful movement since he has been in the White House, according to the Marist poll. The Trump poll showed 39% of respondents viewing Trump favorably, while 51% had an unfavorable impression of him, CNBC reported.
Overall, the Trump poll results suggest that his legal troubles have not impacted his standing among his base and that many Americans still view him unfavorably. The ongoing investigations into Trump’s conduct at the local, state, and federal levels are likely to continue to be a major political issue in the coming years.
