More than two-thirds of Americans think Trump committed crimes before becoming president, according to a new poll.
But unfortunately for Trump, his efforts to deflect responsibility and turn public opinion against those investigating his actions have failed.
According to a Quinnipiac poll released on Tuesday, more than two-thirds of Americans, or 64 percent, believe Trump committed crimes before becoming president. And a plurality of Americans, 45 percent to 43 percent, think Trump committed crimes while president.
"When two-thirds of voters think you have committed a crime in your past life, and almost half of voters say it's a tossup over whether you committed a crime while in the Oval Office, confidence in your overall integrity is very shaky," Tim Malloy, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll, said in a news release.
Adding to the bad news for Trump is that, despite his attempt to smear his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen as a liar, Americans believe Cohen over Trump by a margin of 50 percent to 35 percent.
Overall, Trump's approval rating remains at a dismal 38 percent among American voters — a number no president seeking re-election should be happy with.
Turns out Twitter meltdowns aren't moving the needle the way Trump hoped they would.
