Swing Voters to GOP on Trump Charges: Hasta la Vista, Baby! – The Washington Post

Published on

Stormy Daniels, the adult film star, has apparently caused quite the conundrum for our furry friend Donald Trump. According to a poll, a whopping 76 percent of folks think political mischief is afoot in the decision to throw charges at him. Yet, somehow, a mysterious 60 percent majority is giddy at the thought of his indictment. Talk about a legal roller-coaster ride!

As for the independents, they’re having a field day, with just 31 percent tickling the idea that Trump’s actions were naughty, and a smashing 76 percent convinced that politics played a sneaky role in the decision to prosecute him in the good ol’ Empire State. Even so, 62 percent nod in approval of it.

Mull over the implications for a second, folks: A clear majority of independent voters, who are basically the referees in the game of picking the next president, seem to think Trump didn’t really do anything wrong. They think the justice system is being used as a political slingshot against him β€” but, they also don’t seem to mind it!

Even if you’re not a fan of our tangerine-tinged friend, these numbers might send a shiver down your spine.

Trump’s critics claim that he jeopardizes the very pillars of our democracy. But guess what? The left’s willingness to transform the justice system into a political sock puppet can be just as much of a problem! It’s like they’re ready to set our democracy ablaze in order to save it. These poll numbers are a roller-coaster ride for our democracy, and frankly our dear Republican friends should give it a good hard look.

Why? Because if you’re searching for evidence that Trump’s given off such a bad odor to swing voters who’ll decide our next leader, this poll might be the golden ticket.

Trump’s indictment has turned into quite the party starter for those rallying around him. On March 30, just after the indictment announcement, 46 percent of GOP primary voters hopped onto the Trump train, according to the RealClearPolitics average. Since then, that number’s only grown, ballooning to around 52 percent. All the while, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s supporters shrank from 30 to 25 percent in the RCP average. So, the gap between Trump and his closest competitor has doubled, from 16 to 27 percentage points. Before the charges, Republican primary voters were pretty split on Trump. Now, the tables have turned and he’s the life of the party!

Unfortunately for him, it’s not just Republican primary voters who decide elections. In fact, it’ll probably come down to a delightful group of swing state voters. And, let’s just say they’re not super thrilled with Trump. In a new NPR-Marist poll, a mere 37 percent of independents give Trump the thumbs up, and 64 percent don’t want him to be president again. These folks aren’t keen on him returning to the White House; they’d rather he get prosecuted.

Why? Well, “MAGA” has taken on a different meaning. It’s no longer about all the things people liked during Trump’s presidency. Instead, it’s become synonymous with election denial, refusing to hand over the keys to the White House nicely, and waging a constant war against those who didn’t support his “stolen election” narrative.

If Trump had spent the last couple of years boasting about his achievements in office and comparing it to how Biden’s been doing, he’d be counting down the days to another presidency. However, he’s chosen to spend his time bickering and pushing people away – to the point where many are okay with him getting prosecuted for a crime they don’t even think he committed! The left’s norm-breaking behavior in targeting Trump is old news, but now it seems that even everyday Americans are willing to go along with it just to keep him out of the Oval Office in the future. Republicans, take note before you go all-in on Trump for 2024!
