In a twist of fate, the Biden regime’s weaponization of law enforcement has made Trump stronger.
A new poll shows that the unnecessary FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago has brought people from supporting a presidential bid by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis back to Trump. I think DeSantis would be an excellent president, and I would hope Trump asks him to run on the ticket as his vice presidential choice.
A Politico/Morning Consult poll that was conducted after the FBI raid shows that Trump got a significant bump as Republicans rally around him in the wake of the tyranny of the Biden regime.
As for what this all means politically, it appears that Trump is benefitting from a small rally-around-the-flag effect among Republicans:
In mid-July, 53% of Republican voters and Republican-leaning independents said they would vote for Trump if the 2024 primary were being held today.
Our polling today finds Trump with 57%. The next closest candidate is Florida Gov. RON DESANTIS at 17% — down from 23% in the July poll. No other candidate breaks double digits.
The poll revealed that 49%, less than half of those surveyed, across the political spectrum, support the FBI raid. That’s because Americans do not like it when their government acts like a bunch of Russian Soviets.
The poll asked voters, “do you think that this conducted search warrant on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort is primarily due to: Evidence that he committed a crime” or “Motivation to damage his political career.”
The poll found that 49 percent said the raid was based on “Evidence that he committed a crime” and 39 percent said that they had “Motivation to damage his political career.”
Governor DeSantis sounded off on social media about the FBI raid calling it “another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies.”
“he raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”

The poll also asked registered voters, “Do you believe Joe Biden should run for president in the 2024 election?” 15% said Yes, definitely, 13% said “Yes, probably,” and 45% said “No, definitely not,” and 21% said “No, probably not.” So that’s 28% say yes, Biden should run again, and 66% say no.
That’s probably again because Americans do not like the government run like a Soviet regime and that’s exactly how Biden has been running America. He has attacked his political opponents with the help of Democrats in Congress.
