A CBS/YouGov poll found that the majority of Americans, including three in ten Democrats, believe that the three indictments against former president Donald Trump are “an attempt to stop” his 2024 presidential candidacy.

Respondents were asked how they felt about the investigations and indictments against the former president in the poll that was issued on Sunday. 59 percent of respondents agreed that it is “an attempt to thwart Trump's 2024 campaign,” while 41 percent disagreed.

A closer study reveals that 86 percent of Republicans and 31 percent of Democrats think that the indictments and investigations against Trump are an attempt to thwart his campaign.

Nonetheless, a majority of those polled also agreed that the probes were “defending democracy” (57 percent) and “upholding the rule of law” (52 percent). In contrast, 48% of respondents, including 3 in 4 Republicans, do not believe that the investigations and indictments uphold the rule of law, and 43% do not think they safeguard democracy.

Indictments are seen as “an attack on individuals like [them]” by more than one-third of respondents, including 56% of Republicans and 63% of Trump 2020 supporters.

The poll also asked respondents which concerns them more: “That Donald Trump tried to overturn a presidential election” or, “That the charges and indictment against Donald Trump are politically motivated.”

According to the findings, 38% of Americans are more concerned that the accusations are politically motivated than they are concerned that he allegedly tried to rig the election. Another 24% are equally concerned that the indictment is motivated by politics and that Trump reportedly attempted to change the results.

In a ratio of 41 percent to 38 percent, independents are more concerned about the indictment being “politically motivated” than they are about the specifics of the accusations against Trump.

The poll also found that 51 percent of respondents believe Trump “planned to stay in the presidency through illegal and unconstitutional activities,” while 49 percent either think he planned to remain in office “through legal and constitutional processes” or that he “did not plan to stay in the presidency beyond the end of his term.”

From August 2 to 4, YouGov collected data on 2,145 adults; the margin of error is plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
