(The Center Square) – Former President Donald Trump's supporters plan to back him even if he's convicted of a felony before the November election.

The Center Square Voters' Voice Poll, conducted in conjunction with Noble Predictive Insights, found that 84% of Trump voters would vote for him in November even if he was convicted of a felony before the election.

David Byler of Noble Predictive Insights told The Center Square that might be an undercount.

“This number might seem shockingly high – eight in ten Trump voters are sure they'd support him, even if he’s convicted of a felony,” Byler said. “But I'd argue that this is an underestimate of how loyal Trump voters are. Over and over again, we've seen Trump temporarily lose voters during a scandal. But when Trump and his allies start pushing their own messaging and voters consider the alternative, his wayward supporters tend to come back.”
