Nearly two thirds of likely U.S. voters — including 45 percent of Democrats — think it’s likely that some of the actions former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton took during her time in office were influenced by donations to the Clinton Foundation, according to a new poll.

Sixty-three percent of likely voters think it’s likely. Eighty-four percent of Republicans, 45 percent of Democrats, and 65 percent of unaffiliated voters agree, with 23 percent of Democrats saying it’s very likely, according to the Rasmussen poll released Wednesday.

The poll also said that 51 percent of voters do not trust Mrs. Clinton, compared to 37 percent who do and the remaining undecided.

Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign has had to fend off a recent New York Times report that millions in donations flowed to the Clinton foundation during her time as the nation’s top diplomat from a donor involved in a uranium deal with the Russian government.

The campaign has also dismissed the forthcoming book “Clinton Cash” by conservative author Peter Schweizer, which catalogues foreign contributions to the foundation, as a partisan hit job.

The survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted April 27-28 has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
