I do NOT accept the Bull Shit that Donald Trump indictments and arrest’s, that will continue, are HELPING him with his base….

But according to the latest PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll, Republican faith in Trump’s faultlessness has dwindled this summer.
He is currently the subject of four criminal probes, examining his role in hush money payments made during his 2016 presidential campaign, interfering with the election process in Georgia, attempting to overturn Biden’s victory in the 2020 election and mishandling classified documents after leaving office.
