MANHATTAN, NEW YORK CITY: On June 4, Seth Meyers humorously addressed a new poll indicating that 34% of Republican voters are now more inclined to support Donald Trump in the 2024 election following his conviction in the hush money trial.

On the other hand, Reuters reported that among independent registered voters, 25% indicated that Trump's conviction would decrease their likelihood of supporting him in November, while 18% expressed an increased likelihood.

A majority, comprising 56%, stated that the conviction would not influence their decision.

According to the same Reuters/Ipsos poll, 56% of Republicans stated that Trump’s conviction had no impact on their voting decision, while 11% indicated they were less likely to support him.

"OK, but that 34% was always going to vote for him," the 'Late Night' host quipped, referring to Trump's steadfast and loyal MAGA followers.

“That’s like Snoop Dogg saying, ‘I’m really gonna smoke weed now,’” Meyers quipped, referencing the rapper’s penchant for pot.

In other news, according to BBC, surveys suggest that Trump and President Joe Biden are neck and neck statistically, with a slight advantage in several crucial swing states that will determine the outcome. However, these polls also suggest that his recent conviction could alter this dynamic.

Exit polls from the Republican primaries earlier this year revealed that a significant percentage of voters expressed reluctance to support him if he were convicted of a felony.

According to an April poll conducted by Ipsos and ABC News, 16% of Trump supporters stated they would reassess their backing in such a scenario.

"The real verdict is going to be [on] 5 November, by the people," Trump reportedly said a few minutes after leaving the courtroom.

Netizens opine on the latest polls

One viewer shared, "That loss of 11% of Republicans could well swing the election to Biden. In add'n to all of the MAGAs who were removed from voter rolls due to COVID."

In a similar vein, another observer chimed in, "'and 11% said it made them less likely to vote for Trump.' That's the number that matters, it could be the difference in the election."

Moreover, a viewer highlighted, "What does 34% mean? Trump got the majority of votes in Iowa against Haley but that was 9% of the Republicsn registered voters. That means....91% of the registered Republican voters did not vote for trump. Haley's numbers were after she withdrew. The polls are not reflective on the outcome of the election. One reason I don't feel the election is going badly for Biden." [sic]

Adding to the conversation, a follower contributed, "Ask that same 34% if weed should result in jail time, and they would all say yes."

A comment emphasized, "Didn't think it possible, but Maga is getting stupider." Echoing this sentiment, another comment noted, "The Snoop Dogg Part was hilarious!! LOL!!"

Expanding on the topic, an individual elaborated further, saying, "Before the conviction, he had 56% now it's 34% seems like a trend in the right direction."
