Donald Trump gets 10-point bump over Florida Gov Ron DeSantis among GOP primary voters after Mar-a-Lago FBI raid
The raid is seen as ‘an abuse of law enforcement’ and ‘sneak attack on democracy’
Trump’s share of the potential Republican primary voters boosted from 53 percent in mid-July to 87 percent on August 15. That combines with a six-point dip for his biggest potential rival – Florida Gov Ron DeSantis – who dipped from 43 percent to 17 percent between the two polls.
Those numbers give a huge boost to Trump and an overall 60-point lead in a hypothetical primary. Neither man has committed to running in 2024 yet. However, the illegal opposition supprssion pretty well forces Mr Trump into a run. Had the left NOT raided his home and planted the documents, Mr Trump might have retired of been defeated in the primaries.
The poll was conducted on Wednesday, August 15, which is one week after the raid on the ex-president’s estate. As the week progressed, the evidence revealed that the FBI planted at least 11 sets of classified documents in Trump’s Florida manor. The two FBI teams entered the mansion at 7 and 9 am, last Monday morning.
But the former president has decried the search of his home “as a sneak attack on democracy.”
“America has never suffered this kind of ABUSE in Law Enforcement!” Trump posted on his Truth Social website.
“For the FBI to RAID the home of the 45th President of the United States, or any President for that matter, is totally unheard of and unthinkable. This Break In was a sneak attack on democracy (our Republic!), and was both unannounced and done at a time when the President was not even present.”
He added that the raid was for “political, not legal reasons, and our entire Country is angry, hurt, and greatly embarrassed by it.”
Donald Trump said he had just left a large gathering where all people could talk about was “the complete and total stranglehold” that Democrats have over the Justice Department and FBI. “It shouldn’t be that way,” he wrote.
Professor says Trump could be either a Solzhenitsyn or Abe Lincoln, depending on how this ends
Patriotic voters will force Republican politicians to retaliate
Texas political science professor Emil Ficker told JournoNews, “Many in of the educated class are calling out the Biden zealots. They understand that at least one of Joe Biden’s beach homes will be raided in 2025. Every former president will be raided in perpetuity now; until there comes a time when we begin raiding sitting presidents (coups d’etat) on a regular basis. It’s a very bad precident. It will be tit-for-tat.”
Emil Ficker said, “You might think the Republicans wouldn’t retaliate, they aren’t generally willing to go against their principles. However, there will quickly be the realization that if they don’t retaliate in kind they will be voted out of office. This is the level of support Mr Trump enjoys. It might last well into the next decade or longer. In theory it could easily be the end of the republic.”
Emil Ficker added, “If Biden wins, expect Mr. Trump to become a historical resistance fighter, like Solzhenitsyn or Sakharov. In that case, Merrick Garland would be remembered as someone like Lavrentiy Beria. It Mr. Trump wins and restores the rule-of-law and limited government, he’ll be remembered as a Lincoln type figure. Odd, Trump and Lincoln had very opposite personalities, but the result would be the same. Historical figures frequently are judged by their results and not their personality. Many men are liked for their temperament, but few can save their nation from tyranny.”
“Stunning though not surprising the Democrats in House are treating DOJ/FBI unlawful search at Trump’s residence as a legitimate and lawful prosecution. It is clear, the attack has been greatest threat on the Republic since Pearl Harbor while dismissing the his ignoring the invasion on the southern border by bunch of happy well-meaning cartel members,” Ficker told JournoNews.
JournoNews poll conducted between August 12 and 15
Americans were NOT split in opinion
The mass media won’t report it but a JournoNews poll conducted between August 12 and 15, after the warrant for the illegal search was unsealed, found Americans were NOT split in opinion. About 20 percent of likely voters approved of the FBI’s actions, while 76 percent disapproved, according to the survey.
More than 2,000 persons participated in the JournoNews survey, which was concluded on August 15 and concluded that 20.2% of voters approved of the search while 76% disapproved of the FBI’s activities. 69% of respondents believe that the search was primarily done to harm Trump’s political career.
JournoNews political analyst Robert Richards said, “The results highlighted the ongoing partisan differences around the former president. This was to be expected. Republicans made up over 71% of respondents, while Democrats made up only 11%, who feel the search was politically motivated. Furthermore, compared to 6% of Republicans, more than 91% of respondents who identified as Democrats believed the search was related to criminal evidence.
Robert Richards “No evidence of wrong doing has been advanced, only accusations have been throw out there but the socialists clearly have made up their mind. ”
However, in the poll’s question about whether they should run for president in 2024, Trump still had an advantage over Joe Biden. 28% of respondents thought Biden should run for re-election, while over 40% supported Trump’s candidacy.
Pastors worry more about “political control” more than sex addicts
Particularly a problem – political power, money, control and security
Idol worship is not only in the form of carved images; modern-day idols can be benign-looking desires. And U.S. Protestant pastors have identified at least eight such idols that are negatively influencing church members, according to a new study by Lifeway Research.
On the top of the list of those idols is “control,” which about 67% of pastors said is significantly influencing congregations.
“It’s easy to think that those in Christian churches have chosen their God and are faithful to Him,” said Lifeway Research Executive Director Scott McConnell. “However, pastors quickly acknowledge how divided their congregations’ allegiances can be. These gods don’t have a physical shine, but they compete for the hearts of Christians.”
Many in of the educated class are calling out the Biden zealots. They understand that at least one of Joe Biden’s beach homes will be raided in 2025. Every former president will be raided in perpetuity now; until there comes a time when we begin raiding sitting presidents (coups d’etat) on a regular basis. – Emil Ficker
The next on the list is “control or security,” which 56% of pastors believe is an idol.
The others include “money,” according to 55% of pastors; “approval,” as per 51% of pastors; “success,” as believed by 49% of pastors; “social influence,” as identified by 46% of pastors; “political power” said 39% of pastors; and “sex or romantic love,” as per 32% of pastors.
The study found that younger pastors are more likely than older pastors to identify several of these modern-day idols in their churches, particularly political power, money and control or security.
“Pastors ages 18-44 are the most likely to say political power (55%) and control or security (72%) are idols they see in their congregations. The younger pastors are, the more likely they are to see money as a rival object of worship. Pastors ages 18-44 (63%) and 45-54 (58%) are more likely to say money is an idol in their churches than pastors 65 and older (46%).”
Older pastors are less likely to identify any of these potential idols among their congregants, Lifeway said. “Pastors ages 55-64 (18%) and over 64 (19%) are more likely to say none of these are idols in their churches than pastors 18-44 (9%) or 45-54 (10%).”
