The Number of Democrats Who Want Trump Kicked Off the Ballot Is Extremely Frightening

A vast majority of Democrats support removing Donald Trump from the 2024 presidential ballot, according to a recent survey by Rasmussen Reports.

“Seventy-eight percent (78%) of Democrats approve of states removing Trump from the 2024 ballot,” Rasmussen Reports stated, adding that they surveyed the opinion of 880 likely voters. A mere 19 percent said they were opposed. 

Among likely voters, 50 percent disapprove of removing, with 42 percent expressing strong disapproval and eight percent showing some disapproval. 

On the other hand, 47 percent of likely voters are in favor of the idea, including 34 percent who strongly support it and 13 percent who somewhat agree. For likely black voters, 24 percent indicated opposition to the idea, while 70 percent said they were in favor. 

Rasmussen also asked voters whether they felt the January 6th U.S. Capitol protests should “be considered an insurrection that attempted to overthrow the government.” Forty-eight percent said they did, while 43 percent said they did not. 

The findings paint a bleak picture of affairs, with nearly half the country supporting a blatantly unconstitutional interference in American democracy against a former and potentially future president. 

The survey was conducted as efforts to remove Trump from the ballot are progressing through legal challenges in multiple states, invoking the 14th Amendment’s “insurrectionist ban” based on his supposed support for the January 6th protesters. This amendment disqualifies from office any U.S. officials who have engaged in insurrection or given aid to insurrectionists.

These Democratic-led efforts form part of an unprecedented application of the 14th Amendment’s insurrectionist ban to a presidential candidate, with Trump now widely considered the presumptive Republican Party nominee. 

Two notable instances where decisions have been made to remove Trump from the ballot are in Colorado and Maine, although these decisions are currently paused pending appeals. Meanwhile, other challenges, including Minnesota and Michigan, have been rejected on procedural grounds. 

The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard arguments regarding the effort to disqualify Trump, focusing on whether states have the authority to individually disqualify a presidential candidate or if Congress has the exclusive right to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. 

The options before the Court range from overturning the decision to disqualify Trump in Colorado to potentially declaring Trump disqualified across the board, although the latter is deemed as highly unlikely given the court’s conservative majority.

A 14th Amendment case is also pending in Oregon, where the Supreme Court of Oregon is still reviewing the request. However, the Oregon Secretary of State has sought to dismiss the case on procedural grounds, arguing that the law to determine a candidate’s disqualification applies only to the general election and not the GOP primary.
