Polls Indicate Trump Verdict Irrelevant in Upcoming Election


Ever since the trial started for President Trump, the trending belief is that the verdict could have a major impact on the 2024 election.

At this point in the campaign, President Trump holds a small edge in both the national polling and public opinion survey for the major battleground states, despite being on trial in New York.

This trial could make history, should Trump be convicted of the felony charges, he would be the first in the nation’s history for a former or current president.

Fox News adds quotes from both Democratic and Republican pollsters:

Additionally, eight out of 10 Trump supporters surveyed in an ABC News/Ipsos national poll said they would still back the presumptive GOP presidential nominee if he was found guilty in court. Sixteen percent said they would reconsider their support, and 4% said they would no longer back Trump.

It’s no secret that Biden has been doing an awful job in the office, and the people are ready for President Trump to take back the reigns.
