According to The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, Donald Trump’s popularity among Republicans remains strong, with 63% wanting him to run again, an increase from 55% in April, despite facing criminal charges. However, this support might not translate well to a general election, as 53% of all Americans say they would definitely not support him as the nominee. The charges against Trump in Georgia and Washington have prompted renewed focus on his grievances about the 2020 election, although experts suggest he needs to focus on addressing voters’ concerns rather than his own. Other Republican presidential hopefuls are also seeking support, with some cautioning about the potential impact of the indictments on Trump’s electability.

The poll, which surveyed 1,165 adults, was conducted from August 10 to August 14 using a sample drawn from NORC’s AmeriSpeak Panel, designed to represent the U.S. population. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
