A new poll from Harvard Caps and Harris X has revealed that American voters would vote for 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump over incumbent Joe Biden even if he is convicted in any of the many cases brought forth against him.

The poll asked respondents who they would vote for if Trump is convicted in the Georgia RICO election case, brought forth by Fulton County DA Fani Willis, to which 52 percent said they would still vote for Trump while 48 percent said they would vote for Biden, which is down from 49 percent in January.

Voters were also asked who they would cast their ballot for if Trump is convicted in the January 6 case brought forth by special counsel Jack Smith, to which 54 percent said they would vote for Trump and 46 percent said they would vote for Biden. The responses for Biden are down from 52 percent in January.

In the Mar-a-Lago seized documents case, voters were split 50-50 between Trump and Biden, with Independents favoring Biden over Trump 61 to 39 percent.

The majority of voters said that "Democrats today are engaged in lawfare" against Trump with the multitude of cases he is facing, with 58 percent responding as such compared to the 42 percent who said the prosecutions are fair and unrelated to politics.

55 percent of voters said that Democrats are engaging in these cases to take out Trump as an opponent, while 45 percent said this was not the case.

In regards to the ruling in the civil fraud trial brought forth by New York AG Letitia James, in which Trump was ordered to pay over $350 million and was barred from doing business in the state for three years, 54 percent of voters said this was a fair ruling, while 46 percent said it was biased.

When voters were told that the loans were fully repaid and banks had not complained about Trump’s valuations, 52 percent of voters said the ruling was biased, while 48 percent said it was fair.

The majority of voters also said that the Supreme Court should allow Trump to remain on the Colorado ballot, a ruling that could affect his ability to appear on other states’ ballots, with 58 percent saying he should be allowed, while 42 percent said he should not.

68 percent of voters said they believe the Supreme Court would rule that Trump could remain on the ballot, while 32 percent said he would be taken off.

In a head-to-head matchup, Trump leads Biden 48 to 42 percent, with 9 percent still unsure. When forced to choose from one of the two, 53 percent said they would vote for Trump and 47 percent said they would vote for Biden.

With independent candidates added into the mix, Trump still remains at the top, bringing in 42 percent of the vote to Biden’s 35 percent. Robert F Kennedy Jr received 15 percent of the vote, and 8 percent were unsure.

The poll was conducted between February 21 and 22 of 2,022 registered voters across the US.
