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 19th through August 23rd of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.

“Despite the daily lies, obfuscations, denials, alternative storylines, and other attempts to throw the public off the scent, voters see what is really going on. They understand politics, not justice, are behind the unfolding saga, and they see that the more we know, the worse this gets for those who enforce so-called justice,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States. “In their fervor to go after Donald Trump, federal authorities have completely undermined their credibility and trust with a growing segment of Americans.”
