Trump gets 10-point bump over Ron DeSantis after Mar-a-Lago FBI raid

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

President Donald J. Trump is surging in public polling as his approval numbers increased after the highly corrupt FBI raid at his Florida Mar-a-Lago estate early last week.  In just a short time, Trump emerged as the underdog again, giving even his opponents a moment to pause in their hatred for him and support the 45th POTUS.

And really, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that his favorability with the public is increasing because no one likes the corrupt FBI action we have seen that is supported by Democrats Joe Biden, Merrik Garland, and other FBI and DOJ players.

After so many hoaxes by the FBI and the mainstream media, the public is entirely disgusted, and now polls show that even more people than before will back Trump in any upcoming elections he chooses to run in.

“The passion shown on behalf of the president’s most ardent fans – visible outside Mar-a-Lago all week – continued to Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey golf club on Sunday,” The Daily Mail reported.

The support for Trump has not stopped. Supporters have held a week-long vigil for Trump near his Florida home, according to Jayne Zirkle, who has been reporting on the scene for a week.

Supporters brandishing signs with ‘SAVE AMERICA’ and ‘YOU RAIDED THE WRONG PRESIDENT’ were out on the streets near the club, professing allegiance to Trump and his America First agenda.

Here is some of Zirkle’s footage showing supporters who feel that Trump is being mistreated and who say their support of Trump’s America First policies is why they want him back in the White House:

Trump is seen as a champion who fights back. Last week, Trump demanded that the FBI return to him any attorney-client material they seized from Mar-a-Lago during the raid on Monday and has been seen as the victim of just another FBI hoax.

The public is outraged at how Trump and his family have been treated, which is turning into a positive for Trump, according to the polls.

People love to see someone who pushes back against the massive centralized government that has damaged so much of the United States, and public polling reflects their approval of how Trump is handling the apparent conflicts of interest and abuse of power by the ‘administrative state.’

“The polls are going in Trump’s direction,” the Daily Mail reported as Americans are waiting for Trump to formally announce that he is running for President again in 2024.

“The former president’s share of the potential Republican primary voters boosted from 53 percent in mid-July to 57 percent on August 10, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll,” the Daily Mail reported.

That combines with a six-point dip for his biggest potential rival – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – who dipped from 23 percent to 17 percent between the two polls.

“Donald Trump gets 10-point bump over Florida Gov Ron DeSantis among GOP primary voters after Mar-a-Lago FBI raid, which he brands ‘an abuse in law enforcement and ‘sneak attack on democracy’.” The Daily Mail led with on Sunday.

Trump had chimed in then as well.

‘Oh great! It has just been learned that the FBI, in its now famous raid of Mar-a-Lago, took boxes of privileged ‘attorney-client’ material, and also ‘executive’ privileged material, which they knowingly should not have taken,’ he wrote on Truth Social, referencing a recent Fox News report.

EXCLUSIVE: The FBI seized boxes containing records covered by attorney-client privilege and potentially executive privilege during its raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News, adding that the Justice Department opposed Trump lawyers’ request for the appointment of an independent, special master to review the records.

Sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News Saturday that the former President’s team was informed that boxes labeled A-14, A-26, A-43, A-13, A-33, and a set of documents—all seen on the final page of the FBI’s property receipt —contained information covered by attorney-client privilege,” Fox reported.

Trump said that the FBI should consider his post on the alternative social media site his formal request that the documents be returned to his Palm Beach estate, news reports showed.

‘For the FBI to RAID the home of the 45 President of the United States, or any President for that matter, is totally unheard of an unthinkable,’ Trump wrote on Truth Social.

‘This Break In was a sneak attack on democracy (our Republic!) and was both unannounced and done at a time when the President was not even present.

‘It was for political, not legal reasons, and our entire Country is angry, hurt, and greatly embarrassed by it,’ he claimed without evidence before signing off with: ‘MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!’

Trump demanded that the FBI return to him any attorney-client material they seized from Mar-a-Lago during the raid on Monday.

Those numbers give a 10-point boost to Trump and an overall 40-point lead in a hypothetical primary. Neither man has committed to running in 2024 yet.

The poll was conducted on Wednesday, August 10, after the raid on the ex-president’s estate but before the unsealing of the search warrant, so Trump’s determined opposition will claim m that the numbers are faulty. Still, the proof is everywhere that the American people. Are on Trump’s side.
