Even corporate media has reported that the indictments against President Donald J. Trump are primarily political theater and will have a negligible effect on Republican primary voters.
The majority of people view the drama as an expedient for the Democrats and Trump’s opponents.

According to a recent AP report, Donald Trump has proclaimed that his standing among Republicans improves with each new indictment, and he is correct.
According to a new poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, 63% of Republicans now say they want the former president to run again. This is an increase from the 55% who said the same in April, when Trump first faced criminal charges. Seven out of ten Republicans now have a favorable opinion of Trump, up from sixty percent two months ago.
Trump faces conspicuous vulnerabilities heading into a general election, with many Americans staunchly opposed to him. This is a significant warning sign for the former president and his supporters. 74% of Republicans say they would support him in November 2024, whereas 53% of Americans say they would not support him if he were the nominee. Another 11% of respondents say they are unlikely to endorse him in November 2024.
According to additional media reports, indictments continue to stack up, and a new one may be on the horizon.
“Donald Trump has been indicted again in the Georgia 2020 election probe. It’s the fourth indictment against the former president, who is running to reclaim this old job next year. These legal actions have had zero impact on his standing in the polls; Trump remains comfortably in the lead as the GOP frontrunner. Yet, given that he’s facing nearly 100 charges and with the forces stacked against him, it’s hard to see how Trump walks away from these trials unscathed,” Townhall reported, adding:
“He’ll likely be convicted of something, setting the stage for a January 6-like event on steroids. And Democrats are only too happy to bait conservatives on that front. But that’s for another time. We need to revisit this legal circus because it might not be over. Could there be a fifth indictment looming? Since the Georgia indictment, all eyes have turned to Arizona, where Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs has called for an investigation over the 2020 election. ”
KTAR News provided additional details:
Tuesday, Governor Katie Hobbs stated that Arizona should file charges against former President Donald Trump for possible election interference in 2020.
At an event in Phoenix, Hobbs told reporters that Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes should indict Trump like Georgia did on Monday.
“Absolutely. I have been an advocate for holding folks involved in trying to overturn the will of the voters in the 2020 election accountable and this is part of that process,” Hobbs, a Democrat, said.
The indictment contained multiple references to Arizona, including meetings with Trump allies and legislators in the state after his loss to Joe Biden in November 2020.
Even former Republican governors of Arizona believe that action will occur. The attorney general of the state is already investigating the phony voter scheme (via Fox10 Phoenix):
On video, Arizona’s fake electors, including the former chair of the Arizona Republican Party, Kelli Ward, and state legislators Anthony Kern and Jake Hoffman, sign fraudulent electoral college documents declaring Trump the 2020 election victor.
The Attorney General of Arizona is presently conducting an investigation, and Governor Katie Hobbs hopes that Arizona’s fake electors will face criminal charges.
“I do. I do believe our attorney general is going to move forward on some kind of disciplinary action,” Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said.
Former Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said, “I am concerned about continuing indictments. I think we’re on number four. I’m concerned about how this is going to affect the electorate, the respect for the rule of law, and equal justice.”
Trump and 18 allies were indicted in Georgia for their efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss in the state, with prosecutors using a statute typically associated with organized crime to accuse the former president, his lawyers, and other aides of a “criminal enterprise” to keep him in office.
