According to Reid, following the criminal indictments, a poll conducted by Ipsos last July found that around 37% of Independent voters were less likely to vote for Trump. On the other hand, a poll conducted by Morning Consult earlier this month found that around 20% of Republican voters supported the charges filed against Trump. Lastly, a more recent poll conducted by Ipsos and Politico found that around 33% of various respondents stated that a conviction would make them less likely to support Trump in the 2024 U.S. Presidential Elections.
