Poll: Nearly 70 percent of Americans say sitting president should be subject to criminal charges

https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/448158-poll-nearly-70-percent-of-americans-say-sitting-president-should-be

snipped:

"The national survey, which was released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University, found that 69 percent of Americans polled support charging a sitting president. Meanwhile, 24 percent of respondents said that a president should face charges for alleged crimes only after they leave the White House.

Fifty-two percent of Republican respondents voiced support for charging a sitting president, while 83 percent of Democrats said they'd favor charging a sitting president.


When it comes to President Trump, respondents were evenly split on whether he has committed crimes while in office, with 45 percent saying he did, and the same amount saying he did not. Ten percent said they did not know."

1. The poll seem in line with our sense of justice

We believe no one is above the law. And we are divided on whether he is guilty of the crimes. Our system has a way to resolve that question. Most of us seem to agree on that fact.

2. I agree in that almost 70% of us in that a sitting president should be charged. NO ONE is...

above the law, no one. Mueller should have charged the president with the crimes that he exposed and then let the court system take care of in deciding whether a sitting president should be charged or not. The courts, not Mueller should have decided this issue.

3. The last paragraph of OP is the problem in trump's case. Can't imagine a jury

convicting him with that split, even if evidence convinced a few otherwise.
