Voters questioned during a panel on CNN Wednesday said they would possibly still vote for President Trump even if he shot someone in broad daylight.
During a Q&A on “New Day,” moderator Alisyn Camerota asked six female voters from swing districts in rural Pennsylvania about Trump’s 2016 claim that his supporters would still vote for him if he shot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue in New York City.
“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters,” Trump joked during a campaign event in Sioux City, Iowa on Jan. 24, 2016.
“Is there anything he could do or that could happen that would make you not vote for him?” Camerota asked the group.
“No,” one panelist identified as Crystal said.
“If he shot someone on 5th Avenue, would you vote for him?” Camerota asked.
“You’d have to know why he shot him,” another panelist chimed in.
“Yeah, why did he shoot him?” Crystal agreed.
A Monmouth University poll released earlier this week showed that 62 percent of those who approve of Trump’s performance can’t think of anything he could do to lose their support.
