New data from independent pollster Rasmussen Reports has found that the majority of U.S. Likely Voters believe that President Donald Trump’s federal indictment is bad for America.

Via their data, which surveyed 986 “Likely Voters” between June 12-14, they found that 54 percent of respondents indicated that Trump’s federal indictment in the last week was bad for America.

58 percent of voters also agreed that the charges being brought against Trump were “an affront to every citizen: we cannot devolve into a banana republic where the party in power uses police force to arrest its political opponents. It’s hypocritical for the DOJ to selectively prosecute Trump but not Biden.”

When faced with that statement, only 25 percent of respondents disagreed.

Interestingly, while most Americans believe that the continued indictments of President Trump demonstrate hypocritical duplicity in the justice system, the 45th president has continued to surge ahead in the polls with Republican voters, demonstrating unstoppable momentum in the race for the 2024 Republican primary nomination.

In the most recent Morning Consult 2024 GOP primary polling data, Trump cemented a whopping 40-point lead over declared presidential candidate Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.

A new Quinnipiac poll additionally revealed that Trump held a 30-point lead over DeSantis in a national Republican primary. Trump garnered 23 percent of support via their data, while other declared candidates in the race did not manage to accrue more than 4 percent.

In an Economist/YouGov poll, U.S. adult citizens surveyed between June 10-13 also indicated that they found Trump to be far and away the dominant leader when compared to Joe Biden’s lackluster abilities in the White House.

62 percent of respondents agreed that Joe Biden was “weak” as a leader, while 57 percent agreed that Trump was “strong.”
