(TheRedWire.com) – Former President Donald Trump’s potential conviction in the federal election interference case against him could ultimately hurt his chances in the presidential election more than a conviction in any other case would.
The Harvard CAPS-Harris poll found that President Biden is currently behind Trump by 7 points in a hypothetical match-up in November. However, if the former President is convicted in the Jan. 6, Capitol insurrection federal case then Biden is found to be leading by 4 percentage points against Trump.
However, if Trump is convicted in any of the other three cases against him, he will continue to be leading in a race against Biden. If convicted in the case relating to his mishandling of classified documents, Trump will still lead by 6 points against Trump, while if convicted in the state-federal interference case in Georgia he will continue leading by 2 points.
Trump is currently facing a total of 91 charges across the four criminal cases that were brought forward against him last year. Throughout this time, he has maintained that he has committed no wrongdoings and has pleaded not guilty to all of the cases.
The poll further found that 55 percent of respondents believe that Trump should be convicted if he is found to be guilty of any crimes. Over 50 percent further argued that a possible second Trump presidency would be a threat to the country’s democracy.
Recent polls have shown that Biden and Trump are close in a potential match-up if the two win their respective party nominations.
