Americans are divided on whether President Donald Trump did something illegal, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll.
The survey found that a majority of Americans (56%) believe the president did something wrong, with 39% saying he did something illegal and 17% saying he did something wrong but not illegal.
“Compared with Democrats, Republicans are less united. While a majority, 62%, say that Trump should not have been charged, one in five Republicans say they “don’t know” and 16% say he should have been charged, per the ABC News/Ipsos poll conducted using Ipsos’ KnowledgePanel,” ABC News claimed.
The article quickly raised questions, prompting DBUNK to conduct a Fact-check analysis and the findings found that the news article is only partially factual.
According to the findings, the ABC News article misleads readers by suggesting that a majority of Republicans believe Trump did something wrong, when in fact only 19% of Republicans believe he intentionally did something illegal and 18% believe he acted wrongly but not intentionally, while 45% believe he did nothing wrong. This could lead to a false impression that the majority of Republicans are against Trump, when in reality the majority still support him.
