Former President Donald Trump’s comments about the U.S. Constitution have caught up to him.
A recent poll revealed that more than half of registered voters believe those comments should disqualify him from mounting a 2024 White House bid.
The Quinnipiac University Poll released on Wednesday (December 14) showed 51 percent of registered voters believe Trump’s remarks about the termination of parts of the
Constitution should keep him out of the running in 2024.
Forty percent believed Trump’s statements shouldn’t disqualify him from being on the ballot.
On party lines, more Democrat and Independent voters believed the comments should disqualify Trump than Republican voters.
Democrats were most likely to believe Trump should face harsh punishment for his statements, with 86 percent expressing their belief the former President should be disqualified from the ballot for the remarks.
That figure dipped to 52 percent for Independents and a fraction, 17 percent, for Republicans.
The statements causing quite a stir stem from a post the former President made to Truth Social. In the social media post, Trump insinuated that portions of the U.S. Constitution should be terminated because of the “Massive Fraud” in the 2020 Presidential elections.
Trump expressed his belief that some parts of the Constitution should be terminated to either allow him to be instated as President or to redo the 2020 Election.
He claimed the “Great Founders” wouldn’t have wanted or condoned “False and Fraudulent Elections,” asserting that there shouldn’t be a time limit to rectify “open and blatant” fraud.
Trump’s remarks gained plenty of media attention.
