In spite of the fact that Donald Trump, Jr. gave a detailed account of his June 2016 meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, nearly one third of all Americans who voted for President Trump do not believe the meeting actually happened, according to a recent poll.
The poll, just released Tuesday by Public Policy Polling, revealed that 32 percent of Trump voters don’t believe the meeting even occurred, 45 percent do believe Trump Jr. met with the lawyer, and 24 percent don’t know what to believe.
Results from the poll, conducted between July 14-17, among 836 registered voters, show that 77 percent of Trump voters believe Trump should remain in office, whether there was any collusion with Russia or not, while only 13 percent of the voters believe the Trump campaign did work with the Russians during the campaign.
A full 72 percent of Trump voters believe all the Russia stories are simply “fake news,” while 14 percent disagree.
The poll stated that only 24 percent of Trump voters want an investigation into whether there was collusion with Russia, while 64 percent do not want an investigation.
Only 9 percent of the voters believe either Jared Kushner or Donald Trump Jr. engaged in any illegal activity during the campaign.
Dean Debnam, president of the left-leaning Public Policy Poll, admitted, “The Russia story doesn’t seem to be having that much of an impact on Donald Trump’s political standing.”
The full list of all eight people who attended the meeting between Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer was just released this week.
An earlier poll Wednesday also revealed that failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is still widely more unpopular than President Trump.
