Democrats’ Anti-Trump Lawfare Strategy Is Failing as Only 26% Believe ‘Hush Money’ Trial Will Secure Conviction

The vast majority of Americans say they don’t believe Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg will prove President Donald Trump’s guilt in the Democrats’ “hush money” lawfare trial.

Only about a quarter of people polled believe that Trump will be convicted in the New York “hush money” case, Breitbart reported.

This is not good news for the Democrats as lawfare attacks are the Left’s only weapon in their arsenal against Trump in the 2024 presidential election.

Trump was charged with 34 felonies by Democrat Bragg for allegedly falsifying business records.

However, many believe the case is a political ploy meant to knock Trump out of the running.

This perhaps is reflected in the number of respondents who believed that Trump would eventually face conviction.

The Economist/YouGov poll, conducted April 21-23, asked whether they believed the 45th president “will be convicted of a crime.”

Overall, just 26% said “yes,” while 39% answered “no” to the question.

41% reported that they were “not sure” of what the verdict would be.

While their opinion has no bearing over the outcome, it points to a problem Democrats face with convincing voters.

The narrative surrounding Trump is that he’s a criminal who is unfit for office.

However, it appears that the story just isn’t sticking, even when looking at the breakdown of the poll by party.

Only 37% of Democrats are confident that Trump will be convicted, while another 22% don’t believe he will.

40% are simply not sure.

These respondents should be the most convinced as the Left pushes the Trump criminality lie, but the numbers don’t bear that out.

Predictably, Republicans were less convinced that Trump would be found guilty.

Only 17% believe it’s possible for him to be convicted of the crime, while 46% believe that outcome to be an impossibility.

Another 36% said they were not sure.

This comes as Trump is facing four separate trials, including the New York one mentioned in the polling, CBS News reported.

All of them are meant to make Trump seem untrustworthy or, as in the election interference case in Georgia, dangerous to America.

However, none of it seems to be working at this crucial time, as the election is nearly six months away.

In fact, it only appears to be backfiring as Trump’s support grows.

The Left’s strategy is transparent, but Trump will not let them get away with it.

While Bragg’s trial continues to keep Trump in the courtroom instead of out on the campaign trail, the 45th president is not backing down.

Speaking from outside of the courthouse, Trump blasted his election his opponent, Democrat President Joe Biden.

“These are all Biden trials,” Trump said.

“This is done as election interference.

“Everybody knows it,” Trump charged.

“I’m here instead of being able to be in Pennsylvania and Georgia, and lots of other places campaigning, and it’s very unfair,” the former president added.

“Fortunately, the poll numbers are very good.

“They’ve been going up because people understand what’s going on.”

Americans just aren’t convinced that Trump is a criminal, even if that’s what the Democrats want and need Biden to beat him.

November’s election will be the true proving ground for the Democrats’ strategy of keeping Trump mired down in legal battles.

However, it’s clear even now that Democrats are sunk, and Trump’s legal situation is not the slam dunk they thought it would be for them.
