Trump polls higher thanks to Alvin Bragg

Apr 5, 2023 | True Patriot News Daily

If Democrats thought they could bury Donald Trump this easily, they were sorely wrong. Instead of the indictment by D.A. Alvin Bragg hurting the former president, it seems that the charges have bolstered Trump's polling numbers, giving him a significant bump as we get closer to the Republican primaries. 

A longtime Trump pollster put it clearly when he said Trump's support, “is getting significantly stronger, in spite of what they're throwing at him, and it's not making a dent in the general election numbers.” At least for the time being, Trump is enjoying the boost of an obviously-political show trial that only serves the interest of a select group of Democrats. 

Instead of burrying Trump, Democrats have supercharged the Republican base and inspired them to fight for a former president who is being persecuted in a political witch hunt. As proof of his polling boost, just look at the number of Republicans who believe Trump shouldn't have been indicted in the first place. Currently, that number sits at 62%, showing that Trump still enjoys significant support from a wide array of Republican voters. 

It also looks like Trump hasn't been hurt in the Republican primary, with polls indicating that he leads his closest rival (Gov. Ron DeSantis) by 26 points (57% to 31%). If Democrats were planning on destroying Trump's political career, it's clear as day that they've failed miserably. And adding a gag order to silence Donald wouldn't help their cause at all, so why are they continuing to pursue their witch hunt with such fervor?

Even as Donald Trump prepared to fly to New York for his arraignment, those close to the former president were crediting the man who put him in so much legal jeopardy for the best polling bump he has seen in years: The Trump campaign tells RealClearPolitics that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is helping clear the field of Republican challengers, thereby easing his return to the White House.

“In the short term,” John McLaughlin told RCP, “this is really helping us in the primary.”

On the eve of the arraignment, Trump’s longtime pollster says his candidate “is getting significantly stronger, in spite of what they're throwing at him, and it's not making a dent in the general election numbers.”

McLaughlin predicted that even the worst-case scenario, a potential court-ordered gag order putting the candidate in a verbal straight jacket on the campaign trail, would “backfire,” telling RCP, “If he can't speak out because of the trial, if they try to take his civil rights and his ability to run, it's only going to lead to more support for him.”
