In a recent Fox News poll, a majority of registered voters said they think Trump “did something illegal” related to “efforts to overturn the 2020 election.”
The poll, released Wednesday, also found that 20 percent of registered voters think Trump “did something wrong” but “not illegal.” Another 24 percent said the former president “did nothing seriously wrong.”
Trump, the frontrunner in the race for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination according to a polling average from FiveThirtyEight, was indicted for the fourth time on Monday in a case out of Fulton County, Ga. focusing on attempts to overturn the 2020 election results. The former president also faces legal troubles in New York and on the federal level.
The same poll revealed a drop in the number of voters who think the Department of Justice’s “treatment” of the former president “is politically motivated,” from 55 percent in June to 51 percent this month. Parallel to those findings, there was a rise in those who said the DOJ’s actions against the former president are not “politically motivated.”
The poll was conducted between August 11 and 13, with a margin of error of 3 percent and a sample size of 1,002 registered voters.
