Donald Trump would STILL beat Joe Biden if convicted in two of his three criminal trials: Bleak new poll for the president shows voters care less about his 2024 rival’s legal problems
- A new Harvard-Harris poll reveals voters would back Trump even if convicted in his classified documents and Georgia election charges
- If Trump is found guilty of inciting riots on Jan. 6, he will lose election, poll finds
- The report also indicates that Trump would beat Biden if the election were held today
Americans will still vote for Donald Trump even if he is convicted in two out of three of his ongoing criminal trials, according to a new Harvard-Harris poll released Monday.
The former president currently faces four criminal charges and one civil lawsuit – which he has labeled a ‘witch hunt’ by liberal prosecutors trying to take him down.
It appears that voters overwhelmingly want Trump in office over Biden, even though he has been convicted of allegedly mishandling classified documents, and for interfering with Georgia’s 2020 election process.
However, voters will be barred from voting for Trump if he is convicted of his alleged attempt to overturn the 2020 election by allegedly inciting the riot at the Capitol on January 6.
The poll also revealed that the GOP front-runner would beat Biden by seven points if the election were held today.
If a jury found Trump guilty of crimes related to his handling of classified documents at his Florida home, Mar-a-Lago, 53 percent of respondents would still support the former president, the poll of more than 2,300 registered voters found.

Trump has repeatedly claimed that he has done nothing wrong in the numerous cases against him
Additionally, if Trump is convicted of trying to influence the 2020 election results in Georgia, he would still win 51 percent of the vote, the poll found.
The only conviction that would affect Trump’s bid for the White House is if he is found guilty of inciting the Capitol riots on January 6. In which case he would lose to Biden 48 percent to 52 percent.
Asked whether respondents believed Trump would be convicted of any crimes, the majority, 54 percent, said he would not be convicted.

Meanwhile, only 42 percent of voters approve of the job Biden is doing in the White House.
These respondents largely disapproved of Biden’s handling of immigration, inflation and the Israel-Hamas war, according to the poll.
In addition to his four criminal charges, the former president is embroiled in a civil fraud lawsuit against the Trump Organization, in which New York Attorney General Letitia James alleges Trump and his business associates conspired to inflate his net worth to making and securing transactions. loans.

The federal election interference trial in Washington, DC, is set to begin on March 4.
The former president’s trial over his handling of classified documents is expected to begin on May 20.
