More Than ⅕ Of Trump Voters Approve Of His Sexual Harassment Of Women

A recent poll found that 54% of Trump voters either approve of or don't care if Trump sexually harasses women.

A poll released Thursday found that while the majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump should resign in the face of sexual misconduct allegations against him, many voters making up his base are either unmoved by or approving of Trump's sexual assaults against women.

In general Trump voters seem relatively unconcerned with his behavior toward women. Just 45% say they would disapprove of Trump sexually harassing women while 22% actually say they would approve of him doing so, and 32% express no opinion either way.

Trump voters are similarly unsympathetic toward the slew of sexual misconduct allegations coming out the woodwork in recent weeks, seemingly suspicious of the #MeToo movement altogether:

Trump voters are also somewhat skeptical of the ‘Me Too’ movement, giving it just a 37/33 favorability rating, compared to 74/10 among Clinton voters. Overall voters agree with Time Magazine’s decision to give the ‘Me Too’ movement its Person of the Year award 51/35, but there is predictable disagreement on that too with Clinton voters saying 82/6 they support the honorees and Trump voters saying 75/15 it instead should have been Trump.
