New Poll Reveals 56% Favor Trump’s Exclusion from Ballots in Certain States

In a recent survey, most Americans expressed their views on whether the Supreme Court should prevent former President Trump from running for president again.

About 30% of respondents think the Court should disqualify Trump nationwide, while 26% believe it should be up to individual states. Another 39% feel the Court should allow Trump to be on the ballot everywhere.

Over half of those surveyed (53%) believe the Supreme Court will make its decision based on the law, while 43% think political views on Trump will influence the ruling.

The Colorado Supreme Court and Maine’s secretary of state have already barred Trump from their state ballots, citing the 14th Amendment’s “insurrection clause.” The U.S. Supreme Court will soon hear arguments about whether Trump can be disqualified in Colorado.

The survey also found that slightly more people support the criminal charges against Trump for trying to overturn the 2020 election (56%) than those who support the decisions to keep him off primary ballots in Colorado and Maine (49%).

The survey was conducted from Jan. 4-8 in both English and Spanish, involving 2,228 adults, with a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
