“My president’s got street cred now.”

These were the words of one woman, who spoke with Reuters on May 30, 2024, concerning the then-upcoming verdict in Donald Trump’s first criminal case. 

Sporting a cap reading ‘Ultra MAGA’ and a t-shirt with a picture of the former president and a text saying ‘Never Surrender’ while flying the American flag upside down in protest, she seems to be one of the Trump-loyalists the GOP may be counting on now.

But not everyone is as certain in their support of another presidential term for the former reality TV host. 

According to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll, one in ten registered Republican voters say that they are less likely to vote for Trump after his conviction on Thursday.  

On Friday, May 31, 2024, Trump became the first former United States president in history to be found guilty of a felony. 

A unanimous jury read the verdict, finding Trump, the likely Republican presidential candidate, guilty on all 34 counts.

Trump was charged with falsifying business records in order to cover up a scheme to sway the outcome of the election.

The case is most commonly known as the ‘Hush Money’ case, named after the payments made to people such as adult actress Stormy Daniels, in order to suppress negative stories about the then-presidential candidate, leading up to the 2016 election.

According to the same poll, 56% of registered Republican voters stated that the case would not affect their vote. More than one in three, or 35%, indicated they were more likely to support Trump.
