According to a new Quinnipiac University Poll, around 51 percent of registered U.S. voters believe that Trump’s latest comments regarding the termination of the Constitution should disqualify him from being able to run for the White House in 2024. Around 40 percent of the poll respondents did not believe that the statements made by the former President were enough to disqualify him.
When it comes to a partisan breakdown of these results, around 86 percent of those identifying as Democrats and 52 percent of independents said that the remarks were enough to disqualify him. Among Republicans that percentage dropped to 17 percent.
Trump announced that he would be running for office again a week after November’s midterm elections took place. At the time Trump was facing a lot of criticism as his candidates had failed to secure wins in a number of key races.
Earlier this month, Trump posted on Truth Social that the “massive fraud” that took place before the 2020 presidential election would warrant the “termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.”
These claims were followed by a lot of criticism online by those who disagreed with Trump about the need to terminate the Constitution.
