Polls Reveal Reinvigorated GOP Voters After FBI’s Mar-A-Lago Raid

Although Republicans had long been on the path to regain a majority on Capitol Hill in the upcoming midterm elections, Democrats and many in the mainstream media have emphasized supposed Biden administration successes in recent months as evidence that the balance of power might not be shifting after all.

That might all be changing after last week’s FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago residence in Florida.

In the wake of that unprecedented search of Trump’s home, pollsters with the Trafalgar Group asked likely voters from both parties whether the news made them more likely to cast a ballot in November.

A whopping 83.2% of Republican respondents said that they were more motivated to vote in the midterms, which was almost 30 points higher than the percentage of Democrats who said the same.

Even prominent conservatives who did not buy into the mainstream media’s narrative that Democrats could hold on to a congressional majority nevertheless believe that Republicans are in a much better position following the FBI raid.

For his part, Convention of States Action President Mark Meckler said that “people are freaking out” after reading details about the actions of federal law enforcement agents acting on a Department of Justice search warrant against Trump.

“And by that I mean they’re going to vote, they’re going to drag everybody they know to the polls,” he said. “And a lot of people who weren’t that enthused don’t like the police-state stuff and they’re going to come out and vote, too.”

The raid has sparked widespread debate over the perceived partisan bias of the Justice Department and several GOP lawmakers are vowing to do something about it if their party takes control of Congress during the next session.

In a statement released just hours after the raid commenced, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) prepared the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland for “immediate oversight” if and when Republicans regain a majority on Capitol Hill.

“The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization,” he said. “Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar.”
