    How are Americans feeling about former President Donald Trump's indictment?

    Well, now that it has actually happened, we have yet to see new data answering that question. However, a Quinnipiac University poll that was released Wednesday showed that the vast majority of both Republicans and independents believed that a potential indictment from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is "politically motivated."

    "Republicans (93 - 5 percent) and independents (70 - 26 percent) think the Manhattan District Attorney's case is mainly motivated by politics, while Democrats (66 - 29 percent) think the case is mainly motivated by the law," Quinnipiac announced in a press release.

    Per Quinnipiac, that means that 62% of all Americans "think the Manhattan District Attorney's case involving former President Donald Trump is mainly motivated by politics, while 32 percent think the case is mainly motivated by the law."

    Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of Democrats believe that Bragg's investigation is due to concern about upholding the rule of law.

    Curiously, that same poll finds that a majority of both Democrats and independents believe that if Trump is charged, it should disqualify him from seeking higher office.

    Many have speculated that a Trump indictment would coalesce the Republican Party primary voters around Trump, in support of a perceived political prisoner. There have yet to be any definitive polls proving that, though in wake of the actual announcement Thursday popular pundits such as Glenn Beck of The Blaze indicated the move made them more supportive of Trump.

    "Donald Trump is not even a person anymore," Beck said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." "He is a symbol of the average everyday guy that keeps getting screwed, every single time."

    Beck did not go as far as to say that Trump would win the 2024 election, but he did offer a theory as to how that could happen.

    "I don't know if Donald Trump is the winner or not," Beck said. "But I will tell you this: You're not going to stop a hundred million people. This country is in shambles, and there's going to be a hundred million people that will walk on broken glass and through fire to vote for someone other than this corrupt banana republic administration."

Was it a judicious ploy for Joe Biden's FBI to execute the unprecedented raid of President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate?
  Yes; the Cheneys despise this former Republican president, and for good reason ... so they say.
  No; never has a former president been treated with this level of vindictive abuse by those temporarily in power.
  Who cares? It's Trump.

Considering what many of the most revered legal experts of this age consider a political persecution by the infamous and ignoble New York District Attorney Alvan Bragg: Should the historic, unprecedented indictment of 45th President Donald Trump be considered as a benefit, or a liability to the sustainability of OUR Constitutional Republic?
  Liability, our nation is in peril, as we are losing our "Rule of Law" integrity.
  Benefit, losing our "Rule of Law" integrity is secondary to destroying Donald Trump.
  I mostly worry about losing my Tik Tok.
