After the FBI’s tactless raid on former President Donald Trump, the persecution has only ignited the support for the political leader.
Republican support has hit an all-time high as Trump faces yet another supposed witch hunt. The Federal Bureau of Investigation descended on Trump’s private Florida residence and many patriots appear not to appreciate the overreach.
Many conservatives theorize that Trump’s continued rising popularity was the main reason that the FBI was sent to conduct the outrageous raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
In March of 2022, Trump’s base number was at 56% percent of Republicans backing him in 2024.

It appears that Gov. Ron DeSantis (FL-R) is quickly losing out on presidential support while Trump is soaring. DeSantis has not mentioned wanting to run for the presidency in 2024, but his popularity has caused his name to be considered by some — particularly in the media.
Since July, DeSantis dropped five points from 21% to 16%.
Voters, both Democrats and Republicans, are split when it comes to the FBI raiding Trump’s property in good faith. Only 49% of voters polled said they believed the warrant was issued due to substantial evidence. A total of 39% think the raid was done out of mere political motivation on the Democrats’ part. The last 13% had no opinion either way.
The partisan breakdown shows that most Democrats believed the raid was proper; less than 50% of Independents agreed, and 16% of Republicans concurred.
The FBI is now claiming that they stormed Trump’s home because the 45th president had nuclear secrets stored somewhere.
If Trump did steal nuclear secrets, why did the Biden administration and the FBI wait over a year and less than 100 days before the midterm to get the supposed classified information? Why did they wait until numbers showed Trump was the frontrunner for 2024 before they acted on such sensitive information?
Top elite Democrats appear to be immune to FBI terrorizing, such as Hillary Clinton’s phone smashing, Bill Clinton’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, and the Biden Families’ overseas business dealings.
🚨The FBI just raided the Wilmington, Delaware home of President Joe Biden in search of evidence related to Hunter Biden drug use, his dealings with Ukraine, and Ashley Biden’s claims of sexual abuse by her father.🚨
Ok, just kidding. Democrats don’t get investigated.

Past witch hunts coupled with the odds that the FBI waited 18 months before raiding are so low that Republicans are not buying it for one second.
