Most be­lieve al­le­ga­tions about Trump and women

Don­ald Trump’s be­hav­ior has long grated on Carolyn Miller, but the al­le­ga­tions he sex­u­ally as­saulted women was one fac­tor that helped her de­cide in the past week to cast her bal­lot for Hil­lary Clin­ton.

“I don’t think she’s a bad per­son. Trump, I think, is a bad per­son,” the 70-year-old Fort My­ers, Florida, res­i­dent said. As for Trump’s ac­cusers, Miller added, “I be­lieve them.” And she said her vote for Clin­ton is “a de­fault.”

Miller is among the more than 7 in 10 Amer­i­cans who say in a new As­so­ci­ated Press-GfK poll that they be­lieve the women who say the Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date kissed or groped them with­out their con­sent, a ver­dict that may have turned off enough vot­ers, in­clud­ing some Repub­li­cans, to add to his chal­lenges in the pres­i­den­tial race.

Forty-two per­cent of Repub­li­can vot­ers and 35 per­cent of Trump’s own sup­port­ers think the ac­cu­sa­tions are prob­a­bly true. Men and women are about equally likely to think so.
