Survey Finds Most Americans Believe Trump Indictments Are Trying to Stop His Campaign

The majority of Americans in a new survey believe that recent indictments against former President Donald Trump are an attempt to stop his 2024 presidential campaign.

The CBS/YouGov poll found 59% of Americans agreed with the statement that the indictments are “an attempt to stop Trump’s 2024 campaign.”

"A deeper look shows that 31 percent of Democrats and 63 percent of independents believe the indictments and investigations against Trump are an effort to hinder his campaign, and 86 percent of Republicans feel the same way," Breitbart News reported.

"However, majorities of the respondents also believe the investigations are 'upholding the rule of law' (57 percent) and 'defending democracy' (52 percent). Conversely, 43 percent do not think the investigations and indictments are maintaining the rule of law, and 48 percent do not believe they defend democracy, including 3 in 4 Republicans," it added.

"Just under a third of the country thinks Trump was trying to stay in office through legal, constitutional means — legal, in part because most of them (and including most Republicans) believe Trump's claim that the election was illegitimate in the first place," CBS News reported.

"For most Republicans, the series of indictments are also personal, seeing them as 'an attack' on people like them — echoing some of Trump's rhetoric on the campaign trail," it added.

CBS News attempted to portray the results to show that conservatives support Trump despite his so-called illegal efforts to remain in office.

The poll results, however, reveal that many Americans see the indictments against Trump as an attempt to keep him from returning to office, regarding of whether a person is Republican or not.

The charges against the former president over Jan. 6 are the most controversial yet, coming nearly three years after the events as the primary debates are set to begin.

The legal challenges are expected to continue but so far have had the opposite effect for Democrats with Trump remaining popular to his supporters.
