You would think a man with 91 criminal and felony indictments wouldn’t be very popular. And yet, a recent poll says that those indictments and the fact that Donald Trump could be convicted of them only make him more popular.

A poll conducted in February by Harvard’s Center for American Political Studies and Harris attempted to ascertain who was more popular, Donald Trump or Joe Biden. More specifically, it asked who likely voters were more apt to vote for during a general election at present.

When asked in the most basic of terms, Trump came out well on top, with 53 percent to Biden’s 47 percent.

Then, voters were asked the same question, but if the election were today. Again, Trump won, and with the exact margin, 48 percent to 42 percent. There were just more undecideds.

The poll then swapped Trump out for former South Carolina Governor and Trump competitor for the Republican nomination, Nikki Haley. This time, Biden won, 41 percent to Haley’s 39 percent. About 19 percent were undecided.

Then, the poll got into a few more specifics.

Trump was put back in but proposed to have been convicted of election interference, which is what he’s currently fighting in Georgia against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Trump won again. Fifty-two percent of likely voters said they would vote for him. Only 48 percent backed Biden.

What if he were convicted of inciting “insurrection,” as one federal case alleges? Again, Trump was preferred to Biden, 54 percent to 46 percent. Note the higher margin here.

The poll asked a series of questions, wondering whether or not Trump’s political opposition was using the court cases as “lawfare” or a political weapon. One asked if the charges were politically motivated. Fifty-four percent said yes.

Another asked if the charges were being used as a partisan weapon. This time, 58 percent said yes. And another was reworded to ask if the prosecutions were fair. Again, the majority, 55 percent, said the courts were being used as a weapon against Trump.

In summary, most Americans believe Trump is being framed and that he should be president again. Good luck getting around that one, Dems…
