Former President Donald Trump’s chances of winning the 2024 election do not appear to have been significantly affected by the guilty verdict in his hush money trial, according to polls.

A New York City jury on May 30 found Trump guilty of 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in an attempt to conceal hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election

Trump, the presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee, denied any wrongdoing. He claims the trial was “rigged” and the case an attempt to stop him from winning in November against President Joe Biden.

While there were some polls that indicate Trump has been harmed by his felony conviction in the close race, there have also been more recent surveys that indicate the trial has not severely damaged his White House hopes.

“If anyone was expecting a sudden mass exodus of Trump voters following his legal defeat they were certainly disappointed,” I&I editor Terry Jones wrote in his analysis of the polling data. “If anything, Trump’s hand seems to have strengthened some in the immediate aftermath of his conviction.”
