A new poll finds 50 percent of voters think the sexual misconduct allegations against President TrumpDonald TrumpHarry Reid reacts to Boehner book excerpt: 'We didn't mince words' Man arrested for allegedly threatening to stab undercover Asian officer in NYC Trump says GOP will take White House in 2024 in prepared speech MORE are credible.

A Politico/Morning Consult poll finds that while half of voters think the allegations are credible, another 29 percent of respondents think they are not credible and 21 percent don't know.

A majority of Democrats, 62 percent, thinks the allegations are credible. Republican voters are divided, however, with 38 percent saying the allegations are credible and the same percentage saying the opposite.


The poll was conducted from Dec. 8 to 11 among 1,955 registered voters. The margin of error is 2 percentage points.

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump was accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct.

Trump has repeatedly denied the allegations. On Tuesday, he said Democrats are now focusing on "false allegations" against him.

"Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russia - so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don’t know and/or have never met. FAKE NEWS!" Trump tweeted.

Earlier this week, three women who accused President Trump of sexual harassment called on Congress to investigate the allegations against him.

The women held a press conference Monday to demand the president be held accountable for his actions.

Other Democratic lawmakers have also demanded an investigation into the allegations and several have demanded his resignation.

The poll comes as more women have come forward in recent weeks to allege sexual misconduct by multiple public figures, including those in the media and politics.
