New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reported last week that Trump had pressured the conservative media to legitimize his conspiracy theories that the 2020 presidential election would be “rigged” against him.
The former president also told people in his orbit that he expects to be reinstated by August of this year.
“And none of this is possible. But that’s the kind of thing he’s trying to squeeze into the conservative media ecosystem, ”Haberman said during an appearance on CNN. “And I expect it to become more and more intense as it is investigated by the Manhattan District Attorney and New York State Attorney General and the threatens to be charged in the next few months. “
Since losing last year’s presidential election, Trump has repeatedly made unsubstantiated allegations of widespread electoral fraud and suggested that the election was not conducted fairly.
Polls show a solid majority of GOP voters still support Trump and his policies, with a significant number of Republican voters hoping he will run for president again in 2024.
Trump has not confirmed his future political plans, saying he is currently focused on helping elect Republicans loyal to him and his platform in Congress.
“As you know, it’s very early. But I think people are going to be very, very happy when I make a certain announcement,” Trump said early last month. “You know, for campaign finance reasons, you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole other thing.”
The new Politico-Morning Consult Poll also found that 59% of Republican voters polled said they wanted to see Trump play a major role in the party in the future.
In another key finding, 77 of all respondents said they believe American democracy is under threat, including 82% of Republicans and 77% of Democrats.
Morning Consult noted that only 4 in 10 Republicans said they had at least “some” confidence in the electoral system.
The poll was conducted June 4-7 among 1,990 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
