Republican Voters Rally Around Trump Amid Democratic Persecution

Former President Donald Trump is only getting stronger in the face of relentless persecution by the Biden regime. That’s the conclusion of a new CBS poll showing that Americans are rallying around the 2024 Republican frontrunner even as indictments mount.

And under the current president, an astounding 70% of the country feels that things are going either “very badly” or “somewhat badly.”

The CBS survey was conducted between Aug. 16-18 and polled 2,061 Americans.

A solid majority of Americans, 64%, described the current political system as “dysfunctional” and another 58% labeled it “corrupt.” On the flip side, just 14% called it “effective” and a mere 7% said it was “honest.”

As for Trump, the view among all Americans was almost evenly split between the 38% who called the recent indictments “politically motivated” and the 37% who believed he attempted to overturn the 2020 election.

And despite his mounting legal troubles, Trump only increased his lead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

The former president now leads his nearest challenger, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, 62% to 16%. No one else in the race is higher than single digits. On June 11, the same poll showed the gap was 61% to 23%, meaning the governor’s base of support is slipping.

A late July poll by the New York Times and Siena College showed Trump and incumbent Joe Biden in a virtual tie. The survey created a hypothetical rematch of the heated 2020 campaign and revealed both enjoyed 43% support from likely voters.

The poll, which came before the most recent indictments in Georgia, showed Trump garnered the support of 88% of registered GOP voters. On the other hand, Biden was the choice of 83% of registered Democrats.

Biden held a 42% to 37% margin over Trump among independents.

The incumbent has some ground to cover in convincing the American people that he deserves a second term in the White House. Only 39% of respondents approved of his job performance, while 54% said they somewhat or strongly disapproved of his record.

Republicans clearly see the barrage of indictments against Trump for what they are — blatant election interference. And it is certain that baseless accusations will not deter the party from circling the wagons around their preferred candidate.
