New Polls Shows Voters Divided Over Whether Trump Should Pay Massive Bond

Public opinion is divided over the issue of whether former President Trump should be obligated to pay the $454 million bond before Monday as he seeks to challenge the verdict in his civil fraud case, according to a recent poll.

According to a recent poll conducted by Harvard CAPS-Harris, the majority of respondents, 52 percent, believe that Trump should be required to post the bond in order to appeal the ruling.

On the other hand, 48 percent of respondents feel that he should be allowed to appeal with a smaller bond.

A significant majority of Democrats, a notable portion of independents, and a smaller fraction of Republicans argue that he should be held responsible for the entire sum.

A majority of respondents, comprising 54 percent, expressed their belief that the penalty imposed on Trump is just. Notably, 85 percent of Democrats and 56 percent of independents share this sentiment.

A significant majority of Republicans, totaling 80%, were among the 46% who expressed their belief that the situation is unjust.

In a recent ruling, Judge Arthur Engoron has mandated that Trump, the Trump Organization, and multiple executives be held accountable for fraudulent activities.

The penalties imposed on Trump amount to over $350 million, which, when combined with interest, totals a staggering $454 million.

The recent survey conducted by the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll gathered insights from 2,111 registered voters over the course of two days.

This project is a joint effort between the prestigious Center for American Political Studies at Harvard University and the renowned Harris Poll.
