The majority of voters surveyed in a new poll think President Trump has cheated on his wife, first lady Melania Trump, during their 13-year marriage.

Only 18 percent of American voters said Trump has been a faithful husband, compared to 56 percent who said he had not been loyal, a Quinnipiac poll released on Wednesday found. Twenty-six percent said they were undecided. 

Republican voters were the only demographic who maintained Trump’s faithfulness, the poll found. 

{mosads}Trump has been publicly accused of several affairs in recent weeks that date back years to early in marriage to his third wife, Melania Trump, in 2005. 

Melania Trump was reportedly “blindsided” by reports that her husband’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid an adult film star $130,000 right before the presidential election to keep quiet about an affair. Cohen admitted last week that he made the payment.

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said the affair took place in 2006, which would have been a few months after Melania Trump gave birth to her only son with Trump, Barron Trump.

A former Playboy centerfold also came forward this month with claims that she, too, had an affair with Trump while he was married to Melania Trump.

Karen McDougal said she was paid $150,000 by the National Enquirer for her story of the alleged 10-month relationship, but it was never published. 

Rumors have been circulating about the Trumps’ private life, especially after Melania Trump decided not to  join the president on his trip to Davos, Switzerland, last month. 

However, a spokeswoman for the first lady denied reports about the Trumps’ marriage as “salacious” and “unrealistic scenarios being peddled daily by the fake news.” 

The White House has repeatedly denied the allegations. 

On Tuesday, Trump denied accusations from former Trump Tower receptionist Rachel Crooks, who said Trump had forcibly kissed her inside the building in 2006.
