The unprecedented felony prosecution of former President Donald Trump in New York City is bad for America, according to a majority of voters who say the case is “banana republic sort of stuff.”
That's according to Rasmussen Reports.
The survey finds that 55% say the felony charges against Trump are bad for America.
Thirty-nine percent (39%) say they believe that prosecuting the former president is good for the country.
Trump’s appearance in a Manhattan courtroom last week marked the first time in history a former president has been arraigned for a crime.
Forty-two percent (42%) of voters say they believe the prosecution of Trump will make it more likely he will win the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, while 29% say they think the prosecution makes it less likely Trump will be the GOP nominee next year.
Nineteen percent (19%) say they think the prosecution will not make much difference to Trump's chances of getting the 2024 Republican nomination and another 11% say they are not sure.
"Banana republic" typically refers to a "small, poor country, often reliant on a single export or limited resource, governed by an authoritarian regime and characterized by corruption and political graft."

If the Rasmussen survey had been conducted by # of ballot/envelopes instead of just live voters, I'll bet the outcome would have been vastly different!
What does it say about a nation when 39% of those polled willingly abandon the rule of law? Are they completely uniformed and fail to know that Constitutional lawyers of the Left have reported this is a political persecution of a candidtate for POTUS?
On the other side of the ledger we have 42% wishfully thinking (some may not be wishful), that this action will increase Trump's chances of winning, For everyone thinking it will there are those ready to ensure it does not,
The only poll that matters is the one on election 'season' and only if every citizen gets off their duff and votes. Do not believe that the Left will not rig or skew the numbers to favor democrats, It is therefor imperative that nobody sits back using the exuse that their vote does not matter.
Failure to vote ensures you vote does not matter.
