Recent research shows that most Americans think Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s plan to pursue charges against former President Donald Trump would backfire, do no harm to him, or even aid him in his drive to go back into the White House.
The survey was made by Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group. The results were given to Breitbart News before they were made public. This seems to be the first nationwide survey completed since Trump said over the weekend that he anticipated to be charged soon, and the findings reveal that the vast majority of Americans don’t think the indictment would hurt Trump’s popularity.
Seventy-four percent of Americans think that if Trump was charged with a crime, it would help his campaign for president or have no effect on it at all. (37.5 percent said it will not harm him, and 36.8 percent said it will help him). Only 25.7% of people who took part in a recent poll were worried that this will hinder his candidacy for president.
Mark Meckler, president of the Convention of States, said, “It is clear to the majority of Americans that former President Trump is being harassed by a politically motivated witch hunt meant to discredit him and make him a permanent pariah in American politics.” There is no reason to think that it will work right now. others who like him and others who don’t worry that his conviction and time in prison would hamper his chances in 2024.
When respondents are divided by their political parties, we find that Republicans, Democrats, and independents all have quite similar ideas, with the exception of a big jump in the number of Republicans who think it would assist Trump.
Democrats have different ideas about whether or not an indictment would aid Trump’s campaign. Only 14.8% think it would be helpful, while 42.5% think nothing would change. Only 42.7% are worried that it would hinder his chances of becoming elected.
Over three-quarters of individuals who aren’t Trump supporters (38.9%) and Trump supporters (33.6%), respectively, agree that an indictment will have no effect or boost Trump’s popularity. Only 27.5% of people think it would hurt Trump’s popularity.
Republicans are split on whether or not an indictment would hurt Trump’s prospects of becoming president; 56.2% of Republicans think it would assist. Since the outcome of the primary election depends on their votes, they are now the most interesting group. An indictment would either help Trump’s campaign or have no effect on it, according to 89% or more of Republican supporters. Only 11.3% of Republican supporters think that an indictment would hurt Trump’s prospects of becoming president.
Between March 20 and March 22, 1,081 people who were eligible to vote in the upcoming general election filled out the poll. 2.9% is the amount of inaccuracy in the poll.
