GOP voters out of step with Americans on Trump immunity, new poll shows

On the heels of a unanimous federal appeals court ruling that Donald Trump is not immune from criminal prosecution, a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds that 68% of Republicans think Trump should have immunity for actions he took as president, such as fomenting an violent insurrection.

But the Republican faithful who back Trump’s absolute immunity claim have basically sequestered themselves on an island of alternative facts. 

Meanwhile, back on the mainland, 65% of Americans overall say Trump should not be immune from prosecution, including 91% of Democrats, 65% of independents, and even 31% of Republicans.

The survey is another reminder that Republicans and their voters are living in a completely different reality.
