Most U.S. Voters Believe The New York Times Op-Ed
New York Times Op-Ed
The Quinnipiac poll asked 1,038 U.S. voters whether they think allegations senior advisers to President Trump are working behind his back to prevent him making decisions are true. 55 percent of the survey's respondents believed the op-ed's allegations are true while only 28 percent say they are not. Unsurprisingly, there is deep partisan division on the issue with 27 percent of GOP voters saying it's true compared to 82 percent of Democrats.
51 percent of respondents say the person who wrote the allegations did the wrong thing by having them published anonymously while 39 percent feel the decision was correct. Broken down by party, only 7 percent of those polled think the author was right while that number rises to 65 percent among Democrats.
This chart shows the share believing the anonymously-published allegations in the op-ed.
