Most Americans would believe an accuser over the accused in regards to politicians and public figures accused of sexual misconduct, according to a recent poll from The Economist and YouGov.

When asked about various politicians and public figures who have been accused of sexual misconduct, including Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., and Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., the majority of respondents said they "probably" or "definitely" did what they have been accused of.

On Judge Moore:

  • 57 percent believe Moore's accusers.
  • 14 percent doubt Moore's accusers.
  • 29 percent are not sure.
  • 50 percent said he should drop out of the race
  • 21 percent said he should stay in the race.

On  Rep. Conyers:

  • 59 percent believe Conyers' accuser.
  • 7 percent doubt Conyers' accuser.
  • 35 percent are not sure.
  • 50 percent say Conyers should resign
  • 14 percent say Conyers should stay.

On Sen. Franken:

  • 62 percent believe Franken's accuser.
  • 10 percent doubt Franken's accuser.
  • 28 percent are not sure.
  • 39 percent say Franken should resign.
  • 27 percent say Franken should stay.

"As sexual harassment allegations pile up in Congress and the media, Americans are in no mood for forgiveness," YouGov's Kathy Frankovic wrote. "For women especially, the seriousness of sexual harassment in Congress, in the military, in colleges, and elsewhere is clear – and nearly half of women in the latest Economist/YouGov Poll call sexual harassment a serious problem in the places where they have themselves worked."
