Poll: Majority says Congress should investigate sexual harassment allegations against Trump

© Greg Nash

A vast majority of respondents in a new poll thinks Congress should investigate the sexual harassment allegations against President Trump.

A new Quinnipiac University poll finds 70 percent of respondents think Congress should investigate the allegations against Trump. 

Just one-quarter of respondents think Congress shouldn't investigate the accusations.

Republicans and Democrats differ on the issue. Just 39 percent of Republicans say they think Congress should look into the allegations against Trump, compared to 86 percent of Democrats who feel the same way.

Multiple women accused Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign of sexual misconduct after a 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced in which Trump was heard making lewd comments about women.

Trump has denied the allegations and the White House has said its official stance on the woman who have accused him of sexual harassment are lying.

The poll also found that 73 percent of respondents think it is hypocritical for Trump to criticize other men who have been accused of sexual harassment. Just 16 percent think Trump is right to criticize others.

A majority of respondents, 66 percent, think if an elected official has been accused of sexual harassment or assault by multiple people, that the official should resign.

Forty-seven percent of women say they have been sexually assaulted, according to the poll, compared with 17 percent of men who say they have been sexually assaulted.

The poll was conducted from Nov. 29 to Dec. 4 among 1,747 adults. The margin of error is 2.8 percent.

The poll comes as a growing number of women have come forward in recent weeks to accuse public officials of sexual misconduct. 

Political officials, including Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) are facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. Conyers on Tuesday stepped down from Congress. Franken is facing growing calls from multiple members of his party to resign.

Multiple figures in the media and in Hollywood have also been accused of sexual misconduct — and many have been fired and faced other repercussions for their actions.


Whether the POLL is true or not, do you think Congress should investigate the accusations against Trump along with anyone else in govt?

You can go to the poll and look at the demographics of those polled (the link is in the OP).

Here are the results of just one of the 44 questions asked:

Quoting Missus_Mom: Repondants of random people. Where they majority democrat? Where they polled on the campus, therefore college students? Where they all from the same area? The same race? Same ecomonomic background? Who was polled? It just says random. Not sure this is reliable.
