Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Republicans sticking with Trump despite reports he called soldiers 'losers'A new national Reuters/Ipsos poll released Thursday found that 50 percent of Americans believe the reports that President Trump called U.S. soldiers who died in combat “losers” and “suckers,” but most Republicans still hold positive views of Trump.While half of Americans found the reports credible, 37 percent did not, and 13 percent said they were unsure. Among Republicans and Republican-leading independents, 58 percent said Trump’s alleged remarks had no impact on their decision to vote for him in November, while 18 percent said they were now more likely to cast their ballots for him, 14 percent said they were less likely, and 10 percent said they are not sure.The poll also records that 85 percent of Republicans have a favorable impression of Trump, which remains unchanged from a poll conducted last week, and 84 percent plan to vote for him. Just 8 percent said they are supporting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Among all likely voters, Biden leads Trump nationally by 12 percentage points.The poll was conducted Tuesday and Wednesday, with 1,044 U.S. adults, including 855 registered voters, participating.
