Sixty-four percent of voters say Donald Trump committed crimes before he became president, a new Quinnipiac University poll reveals.

Twenty-four percent do not share in the belief, however.

Here are the highlights from the poll released Tuesday:

  • 48 percent of Republicans said Trump did not commit crimes before he was president, while 33 percent disagree.

  • 45 percent believe Trump committed crimes while he has been president, compared to 43 percent who disagree.

  • 59 percent say Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings, while 35 percent disagree.

  • 58 percent say congress should do more to probe claims by Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen, while 35 percent say it should not.

  • 50 percent believe Cohen more than Trump, compared to 35 percent who believe Trump.

  • 51 percent disapprove of the way Republicans handled the Cohen hearing, while 25 percent approve.

  • 65 percent say Trump is not honest, compared to 30 percent who say he is.

  • 38 percent approve of the job Trump is doing as president, compared to 55 percent who disapprove.

"When two-thirds of voters think you have committed a crime in your past life, and almost half of voters say it's a tossup over whether you committed a crime while in the Oval Office, confidence in your overall integrity is very shaky," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.

The poll, conducted March 1-4, surveyed 1,120 voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
