Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and the Democrats who are supporting his case against former President Donald Trump just got a huge wake-up call in the form of a damning new survey.

According to a new poll by the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, the first criminal trial former President Donald Trump faced was the one in which Americans are least convinced he committed a crime.

Just one-third of U.S. adults believe that Trump committed an illegal act in the New York City criminal trial, where he faces charges of falsifying business records to silence a former adult film star regarding an alleged extramarital affair just before the 2016 election.

Meanwhile, nearly half of respondents believe that Trump engaged in illegal activity in the other three pending criminal cases against him. Furthermore, there is considerable skepticism regarding whether Trump is receiving fair treatment from the prosecutors in the case, as well as doubts about the impartiality of the judge and jurors in matters involving him.

Newsmax added:

While a New York jury will decide whether to convict Trump, public opinion of the trial proceedings could hurt him politically, the poll suggests a conviction could hurt Trump’s campaign.

Trump enters a rematch with President Joe Biden as the first presumptive nominee of a major party — and the first former president — to be under indictment. A verdict is expected in roughly six weeks, well before the Republican National Convention where he will accept the GOP nomination.

Trump has made the prosecutions against him a centerpiece of his campaign and argued that Biden engineered the cases. That argument helped him consolidate GOP support during the Republican primary.

However, there is a pervasive sense of skepticism surrounding all the proceedings. Only around 3 in 10 Americans believe that any of the prosecutors who have filed charges against Trump are treating the former president fairly. Additionally, only about 2 in 10 Americans express high levels of confidence that the judges and jurors involved in the cases against him can maintain fairness and impartiality.

Presidential adviser Dick Morris told Newsmax that Democrats and Biden are struggling to hold on to their typically reliable voters, particularly young voters, and are resorting to desperate measures against Donald Trump.

“Fundamentally, Biden has no issues,” Morris told “Saturday Report.” “There is nothing he has going for him. He has nothing to say He has no issues.

“His negatives on Trump are really not landing and I think they’re very likely to backfire.”
