New poll indicates that 15% of Republicans and 49% of independents believe Trump should halt his campaign following his conviction.

Almost 50% of independent voters and some Republicans, according to a recent poll, want Donald Trump to withdraw from the presidential race.

A Friday Morningside Consult survey, Trump should withdraw his 2024 campaign because to his felony conviction, according to 59% of independent voters and 15% of Republican voters.
