Opposition: Half of Georgia voters don’t want Trump running for president if charges against him are true

Georgia – Maine is now the latest state to declare former President Donald Trump not eligible to appear on the state’s 2024 presidential ballot. This comes as Colorado decided to take Trump off the ballot in that state. Both decisions are based on the 14th Amendment, which states, “No person shall hold office if they have engaged in insurrection or rebellion.” They are referring to the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021.

This week, the Michigan Supreme Court said Trump will remain on the state’s primary election ballot following a challenge. In several other states, Trump has or will initiate legal processes regarding his appearance on the election ballots. Oregon is one of the states where Trump’s legal team has started the legal process to keep his name on the election ballots.

Meanwhile, several more states have already confirmed that Trump will appear on the election ballots in those states. Last week, California Secretary of State Shirley Weber confirmed that Donald Trump will appear on the Republican primary ballot later this year. The decision came following calls from the state’s Democratic lieutenant governor to consider declaring him ineligible under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. The presidential primary election in California will start on March 5, 2024.

Federal judge dismissed a lawsuit in Virginia, win for Trump there

The state of Virginia also joined California on the list. A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit that sought to ban former President Donald Trump from Virginia’s presidential primary and general election ballots due to Trump’s efforts to overturn the result of the 2020 election.

“Although this increasingly litigated legal question of whether former President Trump may be disqualified from running for or serving in public office raises issues of the utmost importance in our democratic system of self-governance, the Court cannot reach the merits of plaintiff’s claims because it lacks subject-matter jurisdiction,” U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema wrote, while explaining the decision.

U.S. Supreme Court will get involved soon is expected to get involved soon

It’s likely that the U.S. Supreme Court will get involved soon. In Georgia, about half of the voters believe that Donald Trump should not be allowed to run in the election. This depends on what happens with the investigation in Georgia, where Trump and his supporters are accused of trying to change the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia.

A recent survey by a nonpartisan group asked over a thousand people in Georgia for their views on the matter. When questioned if Trump should face criminal charges, 52% agreed. Also, if these charges are proven, 47% think Trump shouldn’t be allowed to run in elections.
