The following are excerpts from Jack Holmes' March 5, 2019 article headlined "Donald Trump's Latest Approval Rating Includes a Damning Stat" with the subheading "Roughly two-thirds of Americans think the president committed crimes before taking office."

(Begin excerpts)
While the infotainment vortex supporting the president goes postal over the prospect of House Democrats launching an investigation into him, it seems the rest of the country has drawn some conclusions about Donald Trump, American president. According to one poll from Quinnipiac, at least, El Jefe's struggles go well beyond approval of his job performance—which this survey clocks at 38 percent.

President Donald Trump committed crimes before he became president, American voters say 64 - 24 percent in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.

Republicans say 48 - 33 percent that President Trump did not commit crimes before he was president, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll finds. Every other listed party, gender, education, age and racial group says by wide margins that Trump committed crimes.

One way to look at this is that almost two thirds of Americans think Trump committed crimes before he took office. Another way is that less than one quarter believe he didn't. A third way is that some percentage of Americans both believe the president committed crimes before he took office and approve of the job he's doing. These aren't necessarily mutually exclusive, but you'd hope they went a little more hand-in-hand. Time was that we very much prioritized having a president who we've no reason to believe committed significant crimes at any point in his life.

Now, of course, a narrow majority—one within the margin of error, granted—think Trump has committed crimes while in the Oval Office.

U.S. voters are divided 45 - 43 percent on whether Trump committed any crimes while he has been president. A presidential candidate paying money to hide a negative story during a campaign, and not disclosing that payment, is unethical and a crime, 40 percent of voters say. Another 21 percent say it is unethical, but not a crime, and 20 percent say it is not unethical.

....There's certainly grounds for an investigation, and 58 percent believe Congress should dig into Michael Cohen's claims. 35 percent say they shouldn't. A strong majority want the president to release his tax returns—you know, like every other presidential candidate has done since Watergate—and for Congress to go get them if he refuses. Most do not support impeachment at this point.

For now, this merely points to the fact that the House Democratic investigation that Trump's toadies went so intergalactic over is in fact a reflection of mainstream public opinion. (End excerpts)

One would have to be a total buffoon to somehow "think" person "A" committed a crime, when person "A" had NEVER been convicted of one by a court of law, nor had been on trial for one, nor officially had even been charged with/arrested for one by a law enforcement agency. :rolleyes:

GET REAL PEOPLE!!! :D
