Poll: 50% of voters want Trump to suspend campaign – “The weight is going to eventually get to him”

The latest ABC News and Ipsos revealed that half of the Americans think Trump should focus on his legal troubles, not on his campaign and attempts to return to the White House, but it does not mean that the rest think he should continue campaigning.

The poll contradicts Trump’s statement

During a Republican Party dinner in Montgomery, Alabama, Trump stated, “Any time they file an indictment, we go way up in the polls. We need one more indictment to close out this election. One more indictment and this election is closed out.” 

Only a third of Americans don’t think Trump should stop his campaign

The survey suggested that 50 percent of US voters believe Trump should put his campaign on hold, with a third believing he should not. The rest are undecided.

The numbers are going up

The same survey earlier in August suggested that 49 percent thought Trump should suspend his campaign.

“All this is gonna continue to weigh him down,” Mike DuHaime, an adviser to GOP presidential candidate hopeful Chris Christie, stated.

However, when it comes to Republican voters, Trump is still a favorite, and despite skipping the first two GOP debates, DeSantis and Christie, who were part of it, only had a minor boost in popularity.

Trump was “skillful”

“He’s been pretty skillful to this point, but I do think the weight will eventually get to him,” DuHaime added while talking about the latest polling.

The question of Republican voters

Among Republican voters, 20 percent said Trump should suspend his campaign. Another 15 percent claimed Trump should have been charged in the January 6 indictment. Similarly, 15 percent of Republican voters also think that Trump’s Georgia indictment was justified.

Trump’s first indictment brought a significant boost

The former president saw a substantial boost following his first indictment in March, but following the release of his second indictment, things started to shift slowly. Despite all this, Trump’s mugshot-related merch provided his campaign millions in a matter of days, if not hours.

Trump’s DC case got a trial date, and it is a far cry from the date proposed by his lawyer, which was April 2026. Instead, the date is set for March 4, 2024. Judge Tanya Chutkan confirmed she contacted the judge overseeing Trump’s criminal trial in New York, his first indictment, related to hush-money payments in 2016, which is set to begin on March 25.

A former FBI official commented on the importance of these dates

Andrew McCabe, a former FBI official, now a CNN law enforcement analyst, told the network, “I think that there is a real chance now that that case could go to trial and come to a conclusion before the election.”

Dates are not set in stone

McCabe added, “However, even that trial date, as motions come up and things are won and lost and appealed and delayed, that date could slip – but we have a fair amount of time to get it in.”

Trump’s calendar is packed

Trump will appear in court numerous times before the November 5, 2024, election. On January 15, E. Jean Carroll’s civil defamation trial will begin. Criminal trial in classified documents case should start on May 20.
