Democratic Lawfare Is Not Working

Democrats have long believed that the way to “get” Trump is to tie him up with so many lawsuits that he can’t campaign effectively, and they have recently been dropping the pretense that the former president’s legal troubles are anything more than a political gambit. 

At first, it looked like their trick would workNew Conservative Post reported in January that polling did not look good for Trump. But now, as more and more people, including Never Trumpers, see the ways in which liberal lawfare operates, the less the general public buys that the former president can even get a fair trial

The Daily Caller compiled the data, and it’s not going as planned for the Democrats. 

Trump will enter his fourth week of the New York trial on Monday, where he faces 34 felony counts related to allegedly falsifying business records when reimbursing a payment to pornstar Stormy Daniels in 2016. Several polls released since the start of jury selection on April 15 have found that a potential conviction won’t deter voters from supporting Trump in November. Moreover, individuals nationwide say they don’t believe the former president acted illegally or is being treated fairly in Bragg’s case.

“Millions of Americans are hopping mad at this kangaroo court, and it shows in this recent polling data,” Mark Weaver, a veteran Republican strategist, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “When dozens of partisan players – most of whom are coordinating with the Biden White House or the Biden Justice Department – use taxpayer dollars and precious court resources to try and defeat Trump long before the voters can decide, it makes people understandably angry.” 

An Emerson College poll out April 30 showed that a majority of swing-state voters across Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania said that a potential conviction in the case wouldn’t deter them from backing Trump in 2024. A plurality of independent voters — a crucial voting bloc in general elections — said a conviction would have “no impact” on whether they support the former president.

A CNN/SSRS poll released on April 25 indicated that 76% of registered voters who back Trump say they’ll cast a ballot for him regardless of a conviction in Bragg’s case. The survey also showed that a majority of Americans aren’t confident that the Manhattan jury can reach a fair verdict at 56%.

Liberals in control of the court case have been forced to change direction as Trump’s popularity has continued throughout his trial. The attorney general of New York first tried to set such an enormous bond for appealing his “fraud” case that she hoped to seize Trump Tower. 

Now, the judge in the “hush money” case has placed a gag on the former president and his campaign. The order bars Trump from publicly discussing witnesses and court officials’ family members, many of whom are connected to Democratic campaigns

Trump’s defense has argued that the order violates his First Amendment rights.
