(FixThisNation.com) – An NBC News poll released on Sunday showed that 68 percent of Republican voters continue to support former President Donald Trump after his indictment in a New York City earlier this month. Trump’s New York indictment is only one of the many legal woes he is currently facing.
According to the poll, 68 percent of Republican voters believe that the probes are “a politically motivated attempt to stop Trump,” and that “no other candidate is like him, we must support him.” On the other hand, 26 percent of Republicans have claimed that it was important to nominate a candidate who is going to be able to defeat President Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election and who would not be “distracted.”
Forty-six percent of Republican voters have stated that they would support Trump if the GOP primary was held today, while 31 percent stated that they would vote for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. From the other suspected or announced candidates, former Vice President Mike Pence would receive 6 percent of the votes, while former U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson would each receive only 3 percent support.
Among all respondents, regardless of party affiliations, 60 percent stated that Trump should not run for the White House again, while 35 percent stated he should. Thirty percent of those who stated that he should not run stated that the reason they believe that is because of the business fraud charges he is currently facing, 35 percent cited that to only be a minor reason why they believe he should not run, while 34 percent said it was not at all a reason.
