THE HILL — Half of all likely voters say an indictment should not stop Hillary Clinton from running for president, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
Even if Clinton faces a felony indictment over her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of State, 50 percent of respondents said she should stay in the race until a court decides whether she’s guilty or innocent, the Rasmussen Reports survey found.
Forty-three percent said the Democratic presidential front-runner should immediately stop campaigning if an indictment comes.
The poll found voters divided along party lines. Seventy-one percent of Democrats said she should keep running even if she’s indicted, while only 30 percent of Republicans and 46 percent of independent voters said so.
Forty percent of respondents said Clinton’s email server scandal makes them less likely to vote for her, while 48 percent say the issue won’t influence their vote.
The poll surveyed 1,000 likely voters from May 29 to 30. It has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
