According to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Monday, over 80% of Republicans believe that the federal grand jury indictment against former President Donald Trump over his possession of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate is politically motivated, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Monday.

Trump, who was indicted on June 8 on 37 counts of retaining “national defense information” as well as conspiracy to obstruct justice, has claimed that he is being targeted to stop him from winning the presidency in 2024.

Roughly 81% of Republicans agree the charges are politically motivated, according to the poll, which was taken following the indictment’s announcement.

The poll also illustrated a divide among voters regarding whether Trump illegally stored classified information at Mar-a-Lago after his presidency, when he was no longer entitled to possess it.

While 91% of Democrats polled believed this to be true, just 35% of Republicans said it was the case, with 62% of respondents overall agreeing that the fact was believable.

Trump will appear before U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, whom he appointed to the bench, at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida for his arraignment on Tuesday. He has vowed to plead “not guilty” and said that he would never drop out of the race for president.

However, even as a substantial majority of Republicans believe the charges are politically motivated, just half of them support Trump’s candidacy for the GOP nomination.
