New polling publicized by CNN shows a majority in Georgia approving of the criminal charges brought in that state against former President Donald Trump. The case, which originates with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, accuses the ex-commander-in-chief of conspiring against the 2020 presidential election results from Georgia, where Joe Biden was victorious.

Specifically, 52 percent said they approved of the charges against Trump originating with Willis, while 47 percent disapproved. In addition, 47 percent said the charges disqualified Trump from the White House if true. Though polling goes back and forth between showing Trump and President Joe Biden in the lead in a hypothetical rematch of the 2020 election, it’s clear well before the 2024 election actually arrives that Trump simply does not have an overwhelming base of support.

In the Georgia case, 19 individuals were originally charged including attorney Kenneth Chesebro, who was involved in pushing the scheme to try and use sham electors for propping up Trump’s attempts to stay in power despite losing the 2020 presidential election. In a total of seven states, including Georgia, Trump allies assembled purported electoral votes for the then-outgoing president that some claimed were just meant as a back-up strategy should election-related litigation go his way. Subsequent indications have shown some intending to use the sham electors regardless of outcomes in court, where it was consistently clear that Trump’s claims of wide-ranging election fraud weren’t supported by the evidence.

Chesebro has pleaded guilty in the Georgia case and since begun cooperating with investigators looking into similar occurrences in other states, including Nevada, where a criminal case was recently unveiled charging individuals who served as sham electors for Trump after the 2020 election. That list includes the current chairman of Nevada’s GOP, who’s named Michael McDonald. And in Wisconsin, the sham electors for Trump from that state entered into a settlement amid a long-running lawsuit establishing they’re barred from ever serving as electors for Trump again.
