 April 5, 2023

According to a poll that was commissioned by CNN, the vast majority of people in the United States, including the majority of Democrats, believe that "politics played a role" in the indictment of former President Donald Trump.

According to the results of a survey that was carried out by SSRS and made public on Friday, 76 percent of adult respondents in the United States believe that politics played a role in "the decision to indict Trump," according to Breitbart News.

A number of Americans (23 percent) believe that politics played only a "minor role" in the decision, while the majority of Americans (52 percent) believe that politics played a "major role" in the decision.

Just fourteen percent of respondents believe politics did not have any impact, while ten percent were "unsure" about their answer.

More Results

Sixty percent of respondents who identified themselves as Democrats are of the opinion that politics played some role in "the decision to indict Trump." 25 percent of Democrats hold the view that politics played a "major role" in the indictment, while 35 percent of Democrats hold the view that politics played a "minor role" in the indictment.

Ninety-three percent of Republicans are under the impression that the indictment was motivated by politics, with 83 percent of those under the impression that politics played a significant role.

According to the findings of the poll, there are also 31 percent of American adults who believe that the indictment "weakens US democracy," while another 31 percent believe that it "strengthens US democracy." While the vast majority of Republicans (62 percent) consider it to be detrimental, the majority of Democrats (55 percent) consider it to be beneficial to democracy.

According to a report by Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News, Trump is scheduled to have his arraignment on Tuesday afternoon for 34 felony counts for falsification of business records.”  Nonetheless, the indictment has not been unsealed at this time.

It has been widely reported that the issue revolves around purported payments of hush money made to porn star Stormy Daniels in the year 2016.

Other Takes

According to the reporting of Jana Winter for Rolling Stone, Trump was reportedly presented with the option of a low-profile arraignment via Zoom conference; however, he turned down the offer in favor of a "spectacle."

“He wanted a perp walk; he wanted daylight hours,” says the law enforcement official, who’s involved in aspects of the security planning. “He wants to get out of the vehicle and walk up the stairs.

This is a nightmare for Secret Service, but they can only strongly suggest — not order — that Trump enter through the secure tunnels. Trump wants to greet the crowd. This should be a surprise to no one — especially not his detail.”

“It’s kind of a Jesus Christ thing. He is saying, ‘I’m absorbing all this pain from all around from everywhere so you don’t have to,'” the source added.
