Americans would still vote for Donald Trump even if he were convicted in two of three of his ongoing criminal trials, according to a new Harvard-Harris poll released Monday. The former president is currently facing four criminal indictments and one civil lawsuit - which he has decried as a 'witch hunt' by liberal prosecutors trying to take him down.

It turns out voters overwhelmingly want Trump over Biden in office, even if he's found guilty for allegedly mishandling classified documents, and for interfering with Georgia's 2020 electoral process. However, voters would be dissuaded from voting for Trump if he's convicted for his alleged effort to overturn the 2020 election by allegedly inciting the riot at the Capitol on January 6.

The poll also revealed that the GOP frontrunner would beat Biden by seven points should the election be held today. If a jury convicts Trump of crimes related to his handling of classified documents at his Florida home Mar-a-Lago, 53 percent of respondents would still back the former president, the poll of over 2,300 registered voters found.

Additionally, if Trump is convicted for trying to influence the 2020 election results in Georgia, he would still win 51 percent of the vote, the poll found. The only conviction that would tank Trump's White House bid is if he were found guilty of inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol riots. In which case he would lose to Biden 48 percent to 52 percent.

Further, a majority of respondents, including 30 percent of Democrats , said they believe that the prosecutions of Trump are 'politically motivated,' the poll found.

Meanwhile, only 42 percent of voters approve of the job Biden is doing in the White House. These respondents largely disapproved of Biden's handling of immigration, inflation and the Israel-Hamas war, according to the poll.

In addition to his four criminal indictments, the former president is involved in a civil fraud lawsuit against the Trump Organization, in which New York Attorney General Letitia James alleges Trump and his business colleagues conspired to pad his net worth in order to make deals and secure loans.

Trump has denied wrongdoing in the case and called the indictment a 'political prosecution.' The judge in the civil fraud lawsuit set a trial date for March 25, but said he will wait until February to see if the trial needs to be postponed due to scheduling conflicts.
