CNN took a trip to a county in North East Pennsylvania that voted for former President Barack Obama twice and asked voters about their opinion of the recent legal drama the Trump administration is facing with and as well surrounding Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. The voters didn’t pay much of attention to the question.
CNN’s Jason Carroll asked three Democrats, three independents, and one Republican about the current legal developments concerning Trump’s former campaign chairman and former personal attorney.
Registered Democrat Anne Marie Lenahan stated that the economy is so powerful that she doesn’t have a problem ignoring allegations about Trump’s infidelity, “unless the money came from campaign funds.”
Lenahan said that even though Trump violates campaign finance laws that would be not good, she would still vote for him again.
Registered Democrats Richard and Eileen Sorokas, who voted for Obama twice, said they wanted to eliminate the political correctness, that they are satisfied with the direction of the stock market, and that they consider the drama between Manafort and Cohen as a minor issue distracting attention for something more important.
Registered Republican Bob Sellon noted that the current investigations should focus on Russian meddling in U.S. elections and he hasn’t seen anything noteworthy emerge from it.
CNN then interviewed three independents about what they would do if Trump absolved Manafort or Cohen; they said it would influence on their decision on whether or not they voted for him again.
