Consensus: New Poll Shows No One Really Cares About Trump’s Alleged Porn Star Affair…Including Democrats

Everyone in the news media is obsessed with the Stormy Daniels-Donald Trump soap opera. The porn star alleges that she had a tryst with the future president in 2006. In 2011, she alleges that someone threatened her to keep quiet. She was paid $130,000 in hush money, along with a non-disclosure agreement, which she appears to have violated. The situation reached fever pitch when FBI agents raided the office and residence of Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, yesterday. He’s being investigated for bank fraud and FEC violations relating to the payments to Daniels. Is this a big deal? No. No one cares—no matter how hard CNN tries to make Stormy Daniels into a thing. No one cares. I mean it’s not necessarily shocking. A rich guy maybe had an encounter with a porn star. Mind. Blown. Then, to make things more bizarre, Daniels says no sex occurred in the alleged affair.

Concerning whether the Daniels’ story is an important issue, just 23 percent said it was, with 51 percent of Democratsand 81 percent of Independents agreeing that this story really isn’t all that of a bombshell. What about whether Trump knew about the porn star payments? Only 38 percentagree that this is a key issue. So, we have an overwhelming bipartisan consensus, according to Quinnipiac’s poll.

Daniels is cooperating with federal authorities on this front. Daniels has gone back and forth concerning the details of this alleged affair, saying she didn’t have sex with Trump. During a 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, Daniels says the intimate relations were consensual. Whatever the case, no one cares.

Now, concerning other payments, well--that remains to be seen. But for now, Stormy just gets a shoulder shrug, even from Democrats who absolutely hate Donald Trump.
