WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Some 32% of voters in South Carolina's Republican presidential primary contest think Donald Trump would not be fit for the presidency if he were convicted of a crime, according to the preliminary results of an exit poll conducted on Saturday by Edison Research.

The poll gathered responses from 1,508 voters in the Republican contest. Updated results will be available as more responses are gathered.

Let me explain how it works to our russian trolls. If the criminal trial results in a guilty verdict by a jury and the judge have told how long you need to be in jail you are then automatically a convicted felon..you can then appeal and the court can decide to let you walk the streets during appeal or decide you are a menace to society and lock you up.
mark, Trump has already been proven to be the most corupt President in modern American history. Trump has already signaled he will try to emulate in America the massive fraud, Putin committed against his people, if he is re-elected.
mark still trying to rationalize the lawlessness and coruptiion of trump and his allies.
correct Ivan but until the “if” he is a convicted felon but an appeal wont help him because of ovwrwhelming evidense that he is a fraud and crook
Moot point, as Trump isn't going to be convicted of anything. At least, nothing that can't be overturned on appeal.
