    Trump Takes New Lead In Polling Following Indictment

    Published on

    Donald Trump led the 2024 Republican presidential field by a substantial margin prior to his indictment by the Justice Department, which is presently leading his most likely Democratic opponent.

    According to a recent CBS News poll, the former president dominated the Republican primary with 61 percent support, leading his opponent, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, by a significant 38-point margin.

    Sen. Tim Scott (SC) took third place with 4% of the vote, edging out former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley by one point.

    CBS News added:

    Republican primary voters are far more concerned that Donald Trump’s indictment is politically motivated than that his alleged conduct poses a threat to national security, and there is no evidence that his status as the clear front-runner for the 2024 nomination has been harmed by this development, at least not yet. He maintains a significant lead over rivals in both contemplation and vote selection.

    In fact, the majority of Republican primary voters would not consider his alleged possession of nuclear systems or military plans to be a threat to national security.

    The majority explicitly ruled out the indictment’s charges altering their opinion of Mr. Trump. Even if he is ultimately convicted of a felony in the matter, the vast majority of Americans believe he should be able to run for president again.

    Also, according to Breitbart News, the former president won the Western Conservative Summit straw poll on Saturday, approximately a day after learning he was indicted on 37 counts for mishandling classified documents.

    Trump won the straw poll with 40.3% versus Ron DeSantis’s 35.8%, according to the publication.

    Also Saturday, Trump, during his first campaign event following his Thursday indictment, claimed that his polling numbers and fundraising are both “through the roof.”

    During a rally at which he addressed the Georgia Republican Party, Trump stated that the charges were political in nature and that President Joe Biden was targeting his political opponents in a Soviet-style dictatorship.

    “As far as this joke of an indictment, it’s a horrible thing. It’s a horrible thing for this country,” Trump said. “I mean, the only good thing about it is it’s driven by poll numbers way up. Can you believe it?”

    “And somebody said the fundraising is through the roof, that’s less important. But I will tell you, it’s really driven us right through the sky. We’re really winning big. We’re winning over everyone—we’re beating the hell out of the Republicans and we’re beating the hell out of Joe Biden,” the former president added.

    “That’s why they’re doing it. If I wasn’t, if I wasn’t, there’d be no witch hunt, there’d be no indictment.” CONTINUE READING…
