A new Emerson College poll shows the majority of respondents would vote for former President Donald Trump in a matchup that includes all candidates in the first released by the polling system since he was convicted of 34 felonies by a Manhattan jury earlier this month.

Trump was reportedly picked by 44% of respondents while President Joe Biden received 38% of the vote, followed by independent candidates Robert Kennedy Jr. (6%), Cornel West (1%) and Jill Stein (1%). An estimated 9% of voters said they were undecided.

The survey also showed that 46% of respondents supported Trump, the same percentage as the three polls released prior to his conviction, and 45% supported Biden, a 1% increase from the previous month, in a hypothetical 2024 ballot test.

Additionally, 40% of voters said Trump's criminal conviction made no impact on their decision for the upcoming presidential election, while 33% said it made them less likely to support him and 27% said it made them more likely.

“Trump’s support in our polling remained the same before and after his conviction,” said Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling. “A majority of Democrats say it makes them less likely to support Trump (51%) and a majority of Republicans (55%) say it makes them more likely to support Trump. A plurality of independents say it makes no impact (41%), while 38% are less likely to vote for Trump and 21% more likely.”
