Republicans Stand Firm Behind Former President Trump Despite Indictment

According to a poll released on Friday, Republicans continue to show unwavering support for former President Donald Trump, even in the face of his recent indictment by a Florida grand jury.

While a majority of voters overall (56%) believe Trump should drop out of the 2024 presidential race due to the indictment, a staggering 64% of Republican and Republican-leaning respondents stated that they would continue to back Trump if he remains in the race. These findings were revealed in a national poll conducted by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion.

“As former President Trump deals with his latest legal woes, Republicans are mostly standing with him, while Democrats are calling for him to exit the 2024 campaign,” said Marist Director Lee Miringoff in a statement.

“Time will tell if this pattern holds, but for now, Republicans are grounded on where they stand on Trump regardless of these unfolding events,” he added.

The poll also highlighted that over three-quarters of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, a significant 76%, hold a favorable opinion of Trump. This number has increased from 68% in February, indicating a growing support base for the former president.

The survey, conducted from June 12-14, questioned 1,327 adults, with 1,212 of them being registered voters. The overall margin of error for the poll is 3.5 percentage points, while it is 3.6% for registered voters. Out of the respondents, 467 identified as Republicans or Republican-leaning voters.

Interestingly, 73% of those surveyed believe that Trump did something wrong, but only half of them believe he committed a crime. Another 23% claim that his actions were unethical but not illegal. Among Republicans, the number of respondents who believe he did nothing wrong has risen to 50%, up from 45% in March.

Last week, Trump was indicted by a Florida grand jury on 37 charges related to the mishandling of classified documents after his departure from the Oval Office. These charges include 31 counts for the willful retention of national defense information, which is a violation of the Espionage Act. Trump has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
