Trump MAGA base needs to be stronger than ever because the country needs him back badly!
In a recent survey conducted by ABC News/Ipsos, a significant portion of the American population expressed their views on the potential disqualification of former President Trump from presidential ballots. The survey revealed that a majority of respondents would back the Supreme Court either disqualifying Trump nationwide or leaving the decision to individual states.
Approximately 30 percent of survey participants believed that the Supreme Court should mandate Trump’s exclusion from ballots across the country, while 26 percent thought that the matter should be left to the discretion of state election officials. Contrarily, 39 percent of Americans surveyed expressed support for the Supreme Court ordering Trump to remain on the ballot in all states.
Concerns about the impartiality of the Supreme Court’s decision were evident in the survey results. Fifty-three percent of respondents believed that the justices would base their ruling on legal considerations, while 43 percent speculated that political views on Trump might influence their decision.
Recent actions by the Colorado Supreme Court and Maine’s secretary of state, invoking the 14th Amendment’s “insurrection clause,” led to Trump’s disqualification from their respective state ballots. The U.S. Supreme Court is set to review the case, with a decision expected shortly after the arguments on February 8.
Trump’s legal challenges extend to Maine, where he has appealed the secretary of state’s ruling, potentially reaching the U.S. Supreme Court. Numerous challenges across the country, grounded in the 14th Amendment, question Trump’s eligibility for the 2024 election, but many have faced rejection in lower courts.
Interestingly, the survey indicated slightly more support for the criminal charges against Trump related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election (56 percent) compared to the decisions barring him from primary ballots in Colorado and Maine (49 percent).
The survey, conducted between January 4-8 in both English and Spanish among 2,228 adults, carries a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points. The findings underscore the divided opinions among Americans regarding Trump’s potential candidacy and legal challenges.
