New survey shows 62% of Americans believe charges against Trump are politically motivated
By Kevin Hughes // Jun 28, 2023

Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe the Department of Justice's (DOJ) charges against former President Donald Trump are politically motivated.

The survey, conducted by Quinnipiac University and released on Wednesday, June 21, found that 62 percent of respondents believe the Justice Department's case against the former president is primarily motivated by politics, while only 34 percent of those polled believe the federal charges against Trump are generally motivated by law.

When taking into consideration political party affiliations, 91 percent of registered Republican respondents say that the Justice Department's charges against Trump are mostly politically motivated. Among independents, 65 percent believe they are politically motivated.

Meanwhile, only 28 percent of registered Democrats believe the charges are politically motivated.

When broken down by gender, 64 percent of men and 59 percent of women think the Justice Department's charges against Trump are politically motivated.

By age group, 67 percent of respondents who are between 18 and 34 years of age said the DOJ's case against the former president is primarily politically motivated, while 53 percent of those interviewed who are 65 years or older said the same.

Fifty-nine percent of White respondents believe the DOJ's case against the former president is politically motivated, compared with 67 percent of Hispanic respondents and 52 percent of Black respondents.

A little over half of respondents, or 51 percent, believe Trump should be prosecuted on criminal charges over his handling of classified documents after leaving the White House. About a third of respondents, or 34 percent, say they have carefully monitored the news concerning Trump's federal charges.

Trump, who declared his third presidential campaign in November, has been charged with 37 federal counts concerning the mishandling of classified records at his Mar-a-Lago residence, including his efforts to prevent the government from recovering the documents.

Trump pleaded not guilty at a hearing in a Miami courthouse early this month.

The new Quinnipiac University opinion poll was carried out from June 15 to 19 with a total of 1,776 respondents and has a margin of error of 2.3 percentage points.

Conservative political commentator and podcast host Tim Pool noted that the survey was conducted by a university and not by a member of Trump's campaign or a political action committee that supports him, thus proving the poll's authenticity.

"The people can see that there is a different standard for those in power who are favored and those who are in power who are disfavored," Pool said. He added that this type of situation could lead to more political instability and people "checking out" of the system because they no longer believe in it.
