Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018, 2020, and 2021—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted August 9th through August 10th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.

“Independents and Republicans understand the long-term implications of the FBI raid on President Trump; that we either correct this now, make sure it never happens again, or we lose the freedom Americans have fought and died for over many generations. If they can use the federal government to punish their political enemies, we no longer live in a nation governed by the rule of law,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States. “Democrats overwhelmingly believe this raid was justified, reasonable, and actually strengthens our democracy.  That’s because they have been taught that “Trump is Hitler,” and has nothing to do with whether or not this raid was right or wrong. When we can’t see the issues through the personalities, this clearly demonstrates the deep polarization and division in our body politic.”
