Minnesota Poll: Majority of voters think Trump got a fair trial, felony conviction is disqualifying

A majority of Minnesota voters thinks former President Donald Trump's New York trial, which led to a conviction for falsifying business records to conceal a hush money payment, was a fair proceeding and that a person convicted of a felony should not be eligible for the presidency.

But voters' views of the trial are starkly split along partisan lines, mirroring a deep national political divide over the conviction five months ahead of the November election.

The Star Tribune/MPR News/KARE 11 Minnesota Poll found 54% of voters thought the five-week trial was impartial while 44% said Trump did not receive a fair trial. The poll's findings are based on interviews with 800 likely Minnesota voters conducted June 3-5. The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
