Mehdi Hasan Reveals Detail About Trump Supporters That Will ‘Haunt’ Him Forever


Share post:

MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan spotted an alarming number in a new CBS News poll of Republican voters.

And it wasn’t just that 62 percent plan to back Donald Trump in the presidential primary despite his fourth criminal indictment.

It’s that many trust Trump more than family, friends, the media and religious figures.

The poll finds 71 percent of Trump’s supporters believe what he says it true, despite the fact that he told more than 30,000 lies during his four years in office, according to the Washington Post.

That’s compared to 63 percent who believe family and friends, 56 percent who trust conservative media figures and 42 percent who have faith in their religious leaders.

Hasan wrote that this detail “will haunt me till my last days” in a message on X, aka Twitter:

The same poll found that Trump’s lead over his nearest rival is growing, as he’s now 46 percentage points ahead of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is at 16 percent.

Vivek Ramaswamy is in third place with 7 percent, while former Vice President Mike Pence is in third with 5 percent.

The first Republican presidential debate will be held on Wednesday, but Trump announced over the weekend that he would not be attending.

Others on social media were also left stunned by the new detail about Trump’s voters:
