70.4 percent believe the FBI raid on Trump’s home will increase their motivation to vote in the 2022 election, while 21.6 percent believe it will not. Another 8.1% are still undecided.
More than half of Democrats (55.2%) said it would increase their motivation to vote. Meanwhile 83.3 percent of Republicans said it would motivate them to vote in November.
71.7 percent of Independents said it would encourage them to vote in November.
Furthermore, the survey discovered 47.9 percent believe “Trump’s political enemies” are behind the raid, while 39.7 percent believe the “impartial justice system” is behind it. 76.7 percent of Republicans believe Trump’s political opponents are behind the raid.
