    Nothing can slow Donald Trump down now…

    A recent report found that Trump’s criminal hush money trial is unlikely to deter voters as he awaits a verdict.

    The NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist national poll showed 67% of registered voters nationally wouldn’t be swayed by a guilty verdict against Trump, while 15% said it would make them more likely to vote for him. Another 17% said a guilty verdict would make them less likely to vote for Trump.

     The 12-member jury is currently on day two of deliberations after the prosecution and defense concluded their closing arguments on Tuesday.

    According to the Washington Examiner, among Republicans surveyed in the poll, 25% said a guilty verdict would make them more likely to vote for the former president, while 10% said it would make them less likely to vote for him. Only 7% of Democrats said a guilty verdict would make them more likely to vote for Trump, and 27% said it would make them less likely to vote for Trump.

    Among coveted independent voters, 15% said a guilty verdict would make them more likely to vote for Trump, and 11% said it would make them less likely.

    In contrast, 76% of all voters said a not-guilty verdict wouldn’t affect their votes.

    The best-case scenario for Trump is acquittal however experts have noted outcome is unlikely as it would require all 12 jurors to find him innocent. The most realistic path for the defense is a hung jury, in which at least one juror dissents.

    The former president is expected to appeal if he is found guilty. A conviction would not keep him from running for a second term.

    1. A vote for the the chuckle-head biden is a vote for STUPID.

      If you are voting for biden, you have definitely not been paying attention.

    2. Basic understanding of human behavior suggests anyone that believes they would be any less likely to vote for Trump after a guilty verdict was never going to vote for Trump anyway.
