Terrific: Half of Voters Believe Hillary Clinton Should Keep Running If She's Charged With a Felony

According to a new Rasmussen Report, 50 percent of American voters believe Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton should continue her run for the presidency even if she's charged with a felony. The vast majority of voters believe it is likely Clinton broke the law by storing classified information on a private email server. 

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters think Clinton should immediately stop campaigning if she is charged with a felony in connection with her use of a private e-mail server while secretary of State. Fifty percent (50%), however, think she should continue running until a court determines her guilt or innocence.
 
Among Democratic voters, 71% believe Clinton should keep running, a view shared by only 30% of Republicans and 46% of voters not affiliated with either major party.

Forty percent (40%) of all voters say they are less likely to vote for Clinton because of the e-mail issue, while nearly half (48%) say it will have no impact on their vote. Just eight percent (8%) say the issue makes them more likely to vote for the former first lady.

Sixty-five percent (65%) consider it likely that Clinton broke the law by sending and receiving e-mails containing classified information through a private e-mail server while serving as secretary of State. This includes 47% who say it’s Very Likely.

Whether Clinton will be charged with a felony for storing top secret, classified information on a private server inside her home is still in question. The FBI is reportedly wrapping up its criminal investigation on the matter soon, felony charges are on the table and they are being considered. 

We get the country we deserve.
