Poll: Voters less likely to back candidates who support Trump

The poll – conducted by Morning Consult during the past weekend – comes as Democrats have tried to tie Republicans running in competitive races up and down the ballot to the party’s controversial standard bearer.

If a candidate running for elected office said they support Trump, 38 percent of voters said they were “much less likely” to support them and 11 percent said they were “somewhat less likely.” Among those who identified as independents, roughly one-third (34 percent) said they were much less likely to support a Trump-backing candidate, while 40 percent said they were more likely to support a candidate who opposed him.
