In an ultimate twist of irony that’s sure to enrage Democrats and the media, Trump is gaining political support following the FBI raid on his Florida home.
People think the Democrats and the establishment have gone too far and are sympathetic to Trump over what is seen as a political attack.
It’s a classic case of backfire.
Trump’s 2024 Support Skyrockets Following FBI Raid
Republicans are lining up in support of former President Donald Trump after the FBI unlawfully raided his Mar-a-Lago residence. Fuming with anger, the GOP said the raid was an unprecedented assault on democratic norms and the rule of law.
According to a new Morning Consult/Politico Survey, 58 percent of Republicans say they would back Trump in a hypothetical 2024 election, which is up from 54% in July.
Roughly 39 percent of voters, driven by 69 percent of Republicans, believe that the raid on Trump’s Florida residence was politically motivated to damage his career in Washington D.C.
Trump called the attack on his home an act of “political persecution” and a “Witch Hunt,” with many agreeing that the FBI unfairly targeted him.
“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” the former president said.
Democrats and the media don’t want Trump to be able to run again in 2024. That’s what this was really all about.

.@GOPChairwoman in @foxnews: Everyone needs to pay attention to what’s happening: Democrats are drunk on the power of one-party rule and growing increasingly aggressive in their attempts to punish those who push back against the far-left. https://t.co/rDa1vPCYsQ

This is definitely not playing out the way that Democrats had planned.
