Trump’s Favorability Rises Post-Verdict, ABC News Poll Shows


Former President Donald Trump has experienced a notable increase in favorability following his recent guilty verdict in a high-profile case. According to an ABC News/Ipsos poll, Trump’s favorability rose by six points immediately after a Manhattan jury found him guilty on all charges related to a payment made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

This verdict, which includes 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, has had a polarizing effect on public opinion.

The poll indicates that 22% of respondents now view Trump more favorably post-verdict, compared to 16% who have a more negative view.

For a significant portion of voters, however, their views remained unchanged, with 27% holding a favorable view and 32% holding an unfavorable view regardless of the verdict.

The trial's outcome and subsequent media coverage have solidified Trump's support among his base, with many of his supporters viewing the conviction as politically motivated.

This sentiment has translated into a surge in campaign donations, with Trump's campaign reportedly raising over $34 million from small-dollar donors shortly after the verdict was announced.

Trump's ability to galvanize his supporters despite legal setbacks underscores his resilience and influence within the Republican Party.

This rise in favorability highlights the complex dynamics at play in American politics, where legal controversies can sometimes enhance a politician's standing among their supporters, reflecting deep partisan divides and the contentious nature of contemporary political discourse.


  1. I’m glad Trump still has his supporters. In all my years I have never seen our politicians hating each other so much. It is terrible. Also, the Democrats get more hateful every year. By the way, I’m 91 years old so I have seen a lot.
