(StraightShooterNews.com) – Highlighting the significant threat that former President Donald Trump represents to the extreme left’s agenda, a recent poll has unveiled a significant partisan divide in the United States regarding Trump’s eligibility to appear on presidential ballots.

A CBS News/YouGov poll reveals that a substantial 81% of Democrats support disqualifying Trump from state ballots, while a contrasting 90% of Republicans advocate for including him.

The stance among Independents is more evenly divided, with 44% favoring Trump’s removal from ballots and 56% supporting his presence on them. This division underscores the ongoing national debate about Trump’s eligibility, particularly in the context of his actions following the 2020 election.

Colorado and Maine, both led by Democratic officials, have already taken steps to disqualify Trump from their primary ballots. This decision is based on an interpretation of Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which prohibits individuals who have engaged in insurrection from holding federal office.

In a detailed 34-page decision, Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows cited the events of January 6, 2021, as a key factor in her ruling to disqualify Trump, describing them as an attack on the rule of law and the foundations of the U.S. government.

Legal challenges regarding Trump’s eligibility are ongoing in at least 13 states, including Texas, Nevada, and Wisconsin. The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments on Colorado’s decision, with a session scheduled for February 8.

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Supreme Court has ruled against banning Trump from the state’s general election ballot but left the possibility of future challenges open.

The poll also indicates a shift in Republican sentiment regarding the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot. Approval of the rioters’ actions among Republicans has risen from 21% in 2021 to 30% today, while strong disapproval has decreased from 51% to 32%.

Amidst these findings, the poll highlights a broader concern for American democracy, with 70% of respondents believing democracy is under threat and only 30% feeling it is secure. The poll, conducted with 2,157 U.S. adults in early January, carries a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
