A new NPR/Marist poll showed six in ten Americans don’t want former President Donald Trump to be President again, with poll participants being split on whether the former President participated in any illegal activity regarding the Stormy Daniels hush money case.

According to the pill, only 38 percent of Americans want Trump to be President again compared to 61 percent who don’t want the former President to have another term in the White House.

The polls show that Republican respondents are overwhelmingly optimistic about a second Trump term.

Seventy-six percent of Republicans wanted the former President to have a second term, compared to 34 percent of Independents and 11 percent of Democrats who felt the same.

Democrats, as expected, don’t want Trump to serve a second term.

Eighty-nine percent of Democrats say they don’t want the former President to be in the Oval Office again, 64 percent of Independents agreed with that statement, along with 21 percent of Republicans.

Trump’s favorability rating has also dropped by three percentage points since November.

The poll showed Trump has a 39 percent approval rating, compared to 42 percent in November.

The poll also covered the Story Daniels hush money case.

Trump is currently at the center of an investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg into the former President’s alleged involvement in paying the adult film actress $130,000 hush money in 2016, days before the Presidential election.

When poll participants were questioned about the investigation, 46 percent shared that they believed Trump had done something illegal in the Stormy Daniels hush money case; 29 percent shared they believed Trump acted unethically but didn’t break the law, while 23 percent believed the former President did nothing wrong.
