The Shocking Number of Democrats Calling for Trump’s Removal from the Ballot Will Leave You Speechless

Published on

According to Rasmussen reports, a recent poll shows that a vast majority of Democrats are in favor of removing Donald Trump’s name from the ballot for 2024.

Rasmussen Reports reported that “seventy-eight (78%) of Democrats approve states removing Trump’s name from the ballot in 2024.” They added that they had surveyed 880 likely voters. Only 19 percent of respondents said they were against it.

Concerning the removal of an individual, 50% disapprove, with 42% expressing a strong disapproval, and 8% showing some disapproval.

A total of 47 percent of voters likely to vote are in favor, with 34 percent strongly supporting the idea and 13 percent somewhat agreeing. In the case of likely black voters, only 24 percent were against the idea while 70 percent supported it.

Rasmussen asked the voters if they thought the protests at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2011, should be considered “an insurrection which attempted to overthrow the government.” 48 percent of respondents said yes, and 43 percent did not.

Nearly half of Americans support an interference in American democratic processes that is blatantly against the constitution. This includes a former president and possibly a future one.

The survey was conducted at a time when legal challenges were being filed in several states to remove Trump’s name from the ballot. They invoked the 14th Amendment “insurrectionist” ban based on Trump’s supposed support of the protesters who took part in the 6th January demonstrations. This amendment bars from office all U.S. officials who have participated in insurrections or provided aid to insurrectionists.

The Democratic efforts are part of a first-ever application of the 14th Amendment insurrectionist prohibition to a presidential nominee, Trump is widely regarded as the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee.

In Colorado and Maine, there have been two notable cases where decisions were made to remove Trump’s name from the ballot. These decisions are currently on hold pending appeals. Other challenges, such as Minnesota and Michigan, were rejected for procedural reasons.

The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments recently regarding the effort disqualifying Trump. They focused on whether or not states had the authority to disqualify an individual presidential candidate, or if Congress was the only one with the right to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

The Court has a range of options, from reversing the Colorado decision disqualifying Trump to declaring Trump unqualified in general. However, the conservative majority on the Court makes this option highly unlikely.

In Oregon, the Supreme Court of Oregon has yet to review a 14th Amendment request. The Oregon Secretary of State has attempted to dismiss the case based on procedural grounds. She argues that the law determining a candidate’s ineligibility only applies to the general election, and not to the GOP primaries.
