Colorado Ruling Boosts Trump’s Nomination Campaign Drive

Colorado Ruling Boosts Trump's Nomination Campaign Drive

There is a recent legal dispute against Donald Trump’s bid for a second presidential term. It appears to give the leading 2024 Republican candidate additional strength in securing the party’s nomination.

On Tuesday, the Colorado Supreme Court decided that the ex-president couldn’t be on its state ballot. They have cited “insurrection” through an unusual constitutional rule. This unprecedented ruling might be challenged and overturned by the conservative-majority U.S. Supreme Court.

Contributors and political experts from both major political groups believe the decision will anger Trump’s supporters. It could support his claim of being targeted by a biased legal system, and boost his campaign funds.

Earlier this year, when facing various felony charges related to the 2020 election, his base rallied and funded his campaign. This took place despite these charges not involving insurrection.

John Morgan is a Florida attorney and prominent fundraiser for President Joe Biden. He sees Trump rejoicing and predicts a significant surge in fundraising for the Republican.

Trump has pledged to challenge the Colorado ruling at the U.S. Supreme Court. They have cited the 14th Amendment.

His campaign urged backers to donate against their decision.

In a recent Reuters/Ipsos survey, Trump, 77, slightly leads Biden in a direct competition for the November 5, 2024, election.

The Colorado ruling might assist Democrats in attracting vital independent voters who perceive Trump’s involvement in insurrection.

According to a Dec. 5-11 Reuters/Ipsos poll, 57% of independent voters found it credible that Trump attempted to provoke a mob to attack the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Only 30% found it unbelievable.
