Poll Reveals How Many Americans Believe Trump Should Be Disqualified From Running for President

A recent poll conducted by the Washington Post and the University of Maryland’s Center for Democracy and Civic Engagement has shed light on the divided opinions among Americans regarding former President Donald Trump’s eligibility for the 2024 presidency in light of his alleged actions related to the January 6 Capitol riot.

The survey, conducted from December 14-18, revealed that 46 percent of Americans believe Trump’s actions on January 6 should disqualify him from running for president again. Notably, 80 percent of Democrats surveyed shared this view, while only nine percent of Republicans and 43 percent of independents agreed.

Conversely, 50 percent of respondents indicated that Trump should not be disqualified for his actions on January 6, or that these actions were “not relevant” to his fitness for the presidency. This demonstrates a nation almost evenly divided on whether Trump should be eligible for the 2024 election.

Despite the split public opinion, Democrat-elected Supreme Court justices in Colorado have ruled that Trump engaged in insurrection and should be disqualified from running for president. They advocated for removing his name from the ballot. In response, Trump’s legal team has filed for Supreme Court review, aiming to keep his name on the ballot.

While the country remains divided on this issue, President Joe Biden is expected to make January 6 a central theme in his re-election campaign.

Biden’s plan to spend the third anniversary of January 6 near the Revolutionary War site of Valley Forge in Pennsylvania underscores his intention to address the Capitol riot as a significant moment in recent history. According to the AP, Biden aims to condemn former President Donald Trump for the riot led by his supporters in an attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
