A recent survey released by the Trafalgar Group shows the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago has increased Republicans’ motivation to vote in the November elections. It also revealed that Republicans and Independents believe the raid was politically motivated.
President Donald Trump shared the results of the survey on Truth Social, supporting his belief that the Republican Party has the opportunity to use the FBI’s “political” raid to their advantage in the November midterms.
Recently, Trump said, “Republicans could win many additional seats, both in the House and Senate, because of the strong backlash over the raid at Ma[r]-a-Lago.”
The polls, conducted by the Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action, signal a strong response by the Republican Party in the aftermath of the FBI’s raid of the 45th president’s residence at Mar-a-Lago.
According to the poll, more than 83 percent of Republicans surveyed said the raid has increased their motivation to vote in the midterm elections. Less than 11 percent said the raid did not increase their motivation to vote in November.
Mark Meckler, Convention of States Action president, explained, “Independent and Republican voters are united in their outrage about this unprecedented and tragic event in American history. This gestapo-style injustice has created a voting surge that is so significant, the polling doesn’t even begin to reflect what is coming from grassroots voters in November.”
