Wide Majority of Public Believes Trump Had Sex With Stormy Daniels and Knew of Payment to Her; Even Wider Majority Doesn't Give a Shit

The Clucking Hens of the NeverTrump movement should come out of their carefully-curated cocoons and Emotionally Validating listservs and, for once in their lives, talk to Americans who aren't the same old jackasses.

The Quinnipiac University poll, released on Tuesday, found that a majority of voters, 58 percent, believe the affair actually did happen, compared to 14 percent who believe it did not happen...

But a whopping 73 percent of voters said they do not believe the affair is an "important issue." That includes a majority of Democrats (51 percent), independents (79 percent) and Republicans (90 percent).

Quinnipiac also asked about the $130,000 payment that Trump attorney Michael Cohen made to Daniels in 2016, which Daniels alleges was in exchange for her silence. A majority of voters, 59 percent, said they believe Trump knew about the payment, compared to 24 percent who said they believe Trump was not aware.

But once again, the poll found that voters tended not to care whether or not the president knew about the payment. Fifty-nine percent of voters said whether or not Trump knew about the payment is not an important issue.

"Yes he did it. No we don't care. A big yawn from voters on Stormy Daniels, President Trump, and the payoff," summarized Quinnipiac University poll assistant director Tim Malloy.

Meanwhile, Rassmussen had Trump's approval rating at 50% on Thursday.

And meanwhile, CNN shows why it's the least trusted name in news.
