Former President Donald Trump’s popularity and fundraising have risen despite facing 91 felony charges, but recent polls in battleground states suggest a potential challenge in the 2024 primary race.
If convicted, Trump’s support may be jeopardized, with polls showing potential loss of voters in key states.
While some allies remain steadfast, others express concerns about potential implications, including the possibility of impeachment. (Trending: Democrat Accused Of Blocking Release of Jeffrey Epstein Flight Logs)
Trump’s support among GOP primary voters has remained strong, even increasing after each indictment, indicating continued support regardless of legal issues.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said, “I’ve been traveling all over the country for his campaign.”
“Everyone is solidly supporting him,” she continued.
“The only theory that exists about that garbage is up here in this stupid city. He’s going to blow away the primary whether he’s sitting in a jail cell or not,” declared the Georgia Republican.
“Everybody hates this government, they think it’s a bunch of communist bulls—, and he’s going to win the general [election].”
Rep. Wesley Hunt said, “President Trump is leading Biden in nearly every head-to-head national poll, as well as in most battleground states, so it should come as no surprise that if a ‘conviction’ is reached in one of these sham trials that some Democrat-run states would attempt to prevent Trump from being on the ballot.”
“We are living through one of the most divisive periods in American history, disqualifying the leading Republican candidate for President and taking the power away from the voters would be a terrible escalation,” warned Hunt.
But not all House Republicans are so convinced — with some lawmakers predicting a Trump reelection would only lead to another impeachment, especially if the former president is convicted first.
Rep. Ken Buck believes, “If Donald Trump is a convicted felon the day he shows up to Congress, you can imagine the impeachment, legitimate impeachment, inquiries and motions that are going to be made.”
“And the impeachment, the crimes aren’t just crimes that have nothing to do with politics or his presidency, they are integrally involved with how he operated the White House and what he did after he lost an election,” he continued.
Despite differing opinions, uncertainty remains about the impact of Trump’s legal challenges on his political future.
