Only half of Trump voters say affair with porn actress would be immoral

Only about half of the people who voted for President Donald Trump say it would be immoral if he had an affair with pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels. The other half say it is not immoral, or they are not sure, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov survey published Tuesday.

Three-quarters of Trump voters also contend that, even if Daniels’ allegations are true, they are not relevant to Trump’s presidency. In fact, they claim to be barely concerned about a president’s private life at all: Seventy percent say an elected official who has committed an “immoral act” in his or her personal life can still behave ethically and fulfill duties in the public and professional sphere.

Conservatives have long given Trump a pass on his less-than-stellar record on so-called “moral” values. The thrice-married president has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women, and boasted of grabbing women “by the pussy” and being allowed to do it because he’s famous. He also publicly endorsed Roy Moore for his Alabama Senate campaign after the judge was accused of sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.
