According to a report in The New York Post, Trump supporters see the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid as an excellent development for Donald Trump’s 2024 momentum; “this is so sure to boost Trump and his chances, you wonder if it’s intentional,” one GOP strategist says.
From The New York Post:
Chuck Flint, a former chief of staff to Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) predicted the raid — reportedly part of a probe into whether Trump illegally took classified records from the White House — would unite the Republican Party behind Trump because it “solidifies a pattern of government agencies being used by the Left to target political opponents.”
“Whether it’s the IRS auditing conservative organizations or DOJ relying on a Democrat research dossier as a pretext to launch an investigation of Trump in 2016, these actions stoke GOP resentment,” Flint told The Post.
“The raid at Mar-a-Lago will energize Republican voters who haven’t forgotten Hillary Clinton deleting 33,000 emails and walking away with a slap on the wrist,” he added.
“This is a bell that can’t be un-rung,” said GOP pollster Adam Geller.
“The raid and the way in which it was orchestrated and reported gives Republican and swing voters a jolt that will essentially carry through the midterm elections and perhaps beyond,” he added. “There is no question that Republicans and President Trump can leverage this to their political benefit.”
