In the court of public opinion, most Americans are siding with Cohen, according to the poll of 1,120 voters surveyed between last Friday and Monday. By a margin of 50% to 35%, respondents thought Cohen was more trustworthy. The survey showed that 44% of voters believe Cohen told the truth last week, while 36% believe he did not tell the truth.
In general, a plurality of voters surveyed have a dim view of Trump. 58% said he lacks good leadership skills, the same percentage that believes he cares about average Americans. 65% believe Trump is not honest, while 64% believe he committed crimes before becoming President (and 45% believe he’s committed crimes in the White House).

hopefully , when historians write about this moment in history we'll have a rational explanation as to why 79% of Republicans continue to believe Mr. Twit over Cohen .

Umm... most people pay attention to MSM. Cohen reiterated virtually all of those same talking points.

The results are not surprising.

Maybe people are starting to get sick and tired of defending Trump?

It gets very old to every day, hear stuff that is pretty much either illegal, imoral or just downright nasty. Not everyone is OK with it.

Oh, bullshit. If you support Trump in spite of the crap he pulls, fine, but don't try to tell me that the man is a saint, because no one is buying that.
Not a saint. Not in any sense.

Propaganda works; the MSM repeats the narrative of everything Trump says is a lie, then they insert their own lie and repeat that constantly, daily. People start to believe the lie since it has been repeated so often. Cohen then repeats those same lies, and since those lies have been built up as being fact, people will generally believe what they were trained to believe.

No, that's not what is in play, here. Trump does whatever he wants and the conversation ends up being about whether or not he will pardon himself.

You don't believe that Trump, himself paid off Stormy Danials? You don't believe that Trump lied about having contacts with the Russians? Or that he fired James Comey because he did not want to be investigated? Come on, dude!
