Divisiveness among parties on Trump's indictment

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 16 Aug, 2023 10:38 AM
  • Divisiveness among parties on Trump's indictment

A new poll shows Americans are deeply divided along party lines in their views of former president Donald Trump's actions in the most recent criminal case brought against him.

The poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research shows that about half of Americans say Trump's alleged attempt to interfere in Georgia's 2020 vote count was illegal.

The poll, conducted before Monday's indictment in the Georgia case, also shows that about half of Americans approve of the U-S Justice Department indicting Trump over his efforts to remain in office after losing the 2020 election.
