(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Former President Donald Trump is gaining support in the face of a federal criminal indictment he claims is a “political persecution” by the Biden Justice Department, living up to the nickname “Teflon Don” according to recent polling, which places him several percentage points ahead of President Joe Biden in 2024.

According to the most recent poll by Harvard CAPS-Harris, in a hypothetical 2024 presidential election, Trump would be preferred by at least 6 points over Biden.
Only 39% of respondents said they would choose Biden for a second term.
In comparison, 45% preferred the former President over the current leader. 15% of those surveyed were undecided about the hypothetical race between the two.
The results came as Biden’s problems for 2024 keep getting worse. According to a recently published Dailymail.com/JL Partners poll, 71% of Americans think he is “too old” to seek reelection.
This includes 73% of young adults (18–29 years old), 71% of independents, and 49% of Democrats.
According to Reuters/Ipsos, the Biden White House’s approval ratings have been somewhat of a sore spot, dropping to a historic low of 36% in May 2022.
According to CNN polls, the President’s 41% approval rating in April of this year was the second-lowest for any Commander in Chief in the previous 70 years.
Two Trump indictments don’t appear to have helped Biden’s chances; if anything, the Republican firebrand’s support has grown stronger due to Trump being indicted by Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ).
According to NPR, 71% of red voters will stick for Trump even if he is found guilty of a crime.
The only former or current President to experience such an event in American history was Trump, who was charged for the first time in March by a New York grand jury on state charges.
In the following days, he reportedly raised over $4 million for his reelection campaign.
Numerous well-known conservative leaders have vehemently condemned the indictments as just another instance of militarized law enforcement, a concern the 45th president frequently raises.
After receiving his first indictment, Trump told his supporters, “This fake case should be dropped immediately because it was only brought to meddle with the upcoming 2024 presidential election.”
Regarding a hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, “intent to defraud and intent to commit another crime” was included in the March charges.
It received a lot of flak for being ambiguous and even for “not being a crime,” in the words of Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard law expert.
“All of them connect to Stormy Daniels and other types of personal, sexual, and other payoffs,” Dershowitz told Just The News.
“In his [Bragg’s] press conference, he mentions a couple of them, but they all relate to Stormy Daniels and other kinds of personal, sexual, and other payoffs,” he added. “That’s not a crime at all. Just not a crime,” he continued.
Trump was charged with mishandling secret National Defense Information documents on 37 felony counts in his most recent indictment, which was filed in federal court in Miami. He pled not guilty to all of the charges.
On Monday, a federal judge told him not to reveal discovery information before his trial.
“Trump could easily win the GOP nomination,” according to the Harvard survey, predicting his chances in the general election.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the supposed front-runner in the race, dropped to 14% favorability among Republican voters in the same poll, leaving the former President with a staggering 45-point advantage.
Former Trump vice president Mike Pence finished third with 8% of the vote. At the same time, Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy, Nikki Haley, and other contenders received less than 5% of the vote.
According to veteran Trump advisor Bruce Levell, “Most of these [GOP] candidates that have entered the race owe everything to President Trump.”
In particular, he remarked of Ron DeSantis, who he said was “pushed over the finish line” in the 2018 race for governor against Andrew Gillum, “If it weren’t for President Trump, they would all be no names.”
Levell forecasted that Trump’s lead in the polls would remain “extremely high” as he fought to uphold his innocence.
According to Levell, President Trump will continue to poll exceptionally well because more and more Americans are learning not to trust the majority of the media and the legal system.
No matter what is thrown at him, former President Donald Trump continues to dominate the GOP field ahead of 2024.
Happy Birthday Donald Trump Thanks For Fighting Against The Deep State & Not Giving Up On The American People
