Trump Gets Boost In Polls After NY Case

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Pollster John McLaughlin says that after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg pushed for an indictment of former President Donald Trump, Trump’s poll numbers have “exploded” to 61% compared to 31% for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.  McLaughlin said, “What you’ve got is a situation where the only crime that Donald Trump committed is he’s ahead in the polls. He’s leading Joe Biden in this poll among 1,000 likely voters across the country 48% to 43%. We never saw that in 2016.”  McLaughlin also said that Biden has just a 38% approval rating as 65% say that the country is on the wrong track and 85% say that they have been affected by inflation.  McLaughlin concluded, “Joe Biden, if he can’t fix the economy and he gets a primary, he will get beaten.”
