Following Cohen's explosive testimony to Congress last week, 50 percent of voters say they believe Cohen more than Trump, a Quinnipiac University poll found. Only 35 percent responded that they believe the president more.
An overwhelming 86 percent of Democrats say they are more likely to trust Cohen, while 51 percent of independents agree. Only Republicans — about 79 percent of them — say they believe the president more.
Appearing before the House Oversight Committee, Cohen exhibited a check Trump wrote reimbursing the lawyer for hush money payments he made to women who alleged affairs with the president before the 2016 election, among other documents. Cohen called Trump a "racist," a "con man" and a "cheat."
Cohen will start a three-year jail sentence in May. Last year, he pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, financial crimes and campaign violations related to the hush money payments. Cohen admitted to lying about a proposal to build a Trump Tower in Russia.
Overall, 58 percent of voters — including 60 percent of independents — say they think Congress "should do more to investigate" Cohen's "claims about President Trump's unethical and illegal behavior." Thirty-five percent do not think Congress should take more steps to probe his allegations.
Voters have overwhelmingly negative views about the president's character, the poll found:
A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to a request to comment on the poll findings.
Federal prosecutors have said Cohen committed felonies "in coordination with and at the direction" of Trump.
The telephone poll surveyed 1,120 voters nationwide and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
