DURHAM, NH – New Hampshire residents are divided on the appropriate punishment for former President Donald Trump in the wake of his conviction in the New York “hush money” case.

Most Democrats think a prison sentence is appropriate but less than a third of Independents and very few Republicans agree. Most Granite Staters do not think Trump will be sent to prison and are split on whether Trump’s appeals will overturn his conviction.

On another topic, a majority support President Biden’s executive action concerning illegal immigration, with Republicans more likely than Democrats to be in support.

These findings are based on the latest Granite State Poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center. One thousand, two hundred and two (1,202) Granite State Panel members completed the survey online between June 13 and June 17, 2024. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 2.8 percent.
