Most Republicans are ready to support Trump in the election.

More than 50% of Republicans are ready to support the candidacy of Donald Trump in the US presidential election in 2024, despite the intention of the authorities to bring charges against the politician in court, follows from the results of a survey conducted by the British company YouGov.

According to the poll, of all candidates from the Republican Party in the primaries, 52% of Republican supporters can vote for Trump. He is followed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is ready to support 21% of respondents. In third place in popularity is the former governor of South Carolina and former US representative to the UN Nikki Haley, 5% can vote for her.

In addition, survey participants were asked questions about the Grand Jury’s decision to indict Trump. 43% of Americans cite political bias as the primary motive for the indictment, with 42% of respondents saying it was motivated by a genuine desire to hold Trump accountable.

The survey was conducted from March 30 to March 31 among 1,089 American adults. The statistical error is 3.3 percentage points.

Earlier, a grand jury in New York voted to indict Trump. According to CNN sources, the Manhattan prosecutor’s office accuses the former US president of more than 30 counts of business fraud. Officially, the charges will be announced only when Trump appears in court, but it is assumed that this is the case of pornographic actress Stormy Daniels – she was allegedly paid a large sum for silence about the alleged affair with Trump. The ex-president has previously denied both the connection with Daniels and any illegal actions on his part. Trump has also said that the persecution is purely political and linked to his intention to run for president in 2024.

Trump’s arrival in court is expected on April 4. As the politician’s lawyer Joe Tacopina said earlier, during his appearance, the former US president intends to declare his innocence.
