Poll: More Americans believe Stormy Daniels than Trump

Americans say they believe adult-film star Stormy Daniels more than they believe President TrumpDonald TrumpChinese apps could face subpoenas, bans under Biden executive order: report Kim says North Korea needs to be 'prepared' for 'confrontation' with US Ex-Colorado GOP chair accused of stealing more than 0K from pro-Trump PAC MORE, according to a new poll.

The Economist/YouGov survey released Thursday found that 34 percent of respondents said they believe Daniels, compared to 30 percent who said they believe Trump. Thirty percent said they don't believe either one, and 6 percent said both are equally trustworthy.

Daniels alleges that she had an affair with Trump in 2006. She is suing over a nondisclosure agreement about the alleged affair, claiming that the document is void because Trump did not sign it.

Trump has said there was no affair.


Respondents in the poll were divided mostly along party lines, with 63 percent of Democrats backing Daniels over Trump, and 72 percent of Republicans siding with the president.

Daniels is also suing Trump for libel, alleging that he publicly undermined her reputation and cast doubt on her allegation that a man threatened her to keep quiet about the alleged affair.

The libel case was moved from a New York court to Los Angeles last week.

The Economist/YouGov poll surveyed 1,500 U.S. adults online Aug. 5-7. The survey has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
