Sarah Longwell is a Republican pollster and Trump critic who conducts focus groups with Republicans. She tells Here & Now host Robin Young that former President Donald Trump had universal support for the first time this year in one of her focus groups.

The poll of Republican voters was conducted the day after the hush money indictment was announced last week. And every participant said they were considering donating to the 2024 Trump presidential campaign.
