Most voters who picked Democrat Hillary Clinton also believe her husband, former President Bill Clinton, was guilty of the sexual assault and harassment allegations made in claims made against him over the years, a new poll released Thursday showed.
The results also showed that voters put more faith in the “credibility” of accusations when they are made against a politician of the opposite party.
All told, 53 percent of Hillary Clinton’s voters thought the accusations against the former Arkansas governor were “credible,” while 11 percent did not believe the allegations, according to the joint Huffington Post/YouGov survey. The survey asked about Bill Clinton, disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly, as well as President Donald Trump, who was accused of sexual assault and harassment before last year’s election.
Thirty-six percent of Clinton’s voters were unsure if her husband was guilty. Dating as far back as the late 1970s, Bill Clinton has been accused of rape and sexual harassment and assault, which included accusations of groping women.
