Here’s why Trump’s conviction on 34 felony counts could help Biden

Here’s why Trump’s conviction on 34 felony counts could help Biden

A new Marist Poll gauging the electoral implications of a guilty verdict in Donald Trump’s hush money trial is taking on new meaning following news Thursday of his criminal conviction on all 34 counts of falsifying business records. Though the poll, which was conducted for NPR and PBS, found that 67% of voters said a conviction would have no impact on their vote, nearly one-third said it likely would affect their choice for president.  

At first blush, whether a guilty verdict helps or hurts Trump was negligible, with 15% saying a conviction makes them more likely to vote for him and 17% saying less likely.

The question is: Which demographics said a conviction might turn them off of Trump—and do they help President Joe Biden?
