Chronicle poll results: Criminal proceedings against Donald Trump

We asked our readers if they are following the criminal proceedings against Donald Trump. Here's what they said.

Last week, the Chronicle asked its readers in an electronic poll the following question: “Have you been following the criminal proceedings against Donald Trump?” Of the 316 people who responded, 84% said yes and 16% said no. Comments were submitted by 134 people. A few follow.

The proceedings are indeed criminal.

I hope he is convicted. Following that conviction, I hope he is disallowed to be a presidential candidate as a convicted felon, though I know there is no law supporting that. I cannot imagine having this man as president again. It would be disastrous for the U.S.

This is nothing but a sham trial orchestrated by the corrupt Biden administration and presented by a Trump-hating judge, who is a Biden donor — and his daughter is a Biden surrogate. Talk about “threat to democracy?” It’s definitely Joe Biden. Initially, both the Feds and local DA refused to prosecute because they knew there was no case whatsoever. However, when Trump declared his candidacy, they changed their tune and decided to prosecute. We now have a weaponized DOJ and FBI against a political opponent for the purpose of preventing him from winning in 2024. Biden has nothing good to run on and his handlers know it!

He should have been jailed for treason on Jan. 7. I find it appalling how our justice system has been abused by him and his cronies who support this pathological liar.

Trial should never have happened. It is election interference!

He’s an embarrassment to our country.

This is strictly political but the man has no scruples.

I only look at the headlines but don’t want to invest any more time in reading more about this amoral individual. I am so disillusioned with the presidential election this year. Neither candidate is worth a vote. Neither is good for the USA or for Israel. It truly is the worst of times.

Like Trump or not, these current and other potential proceedings against him are entirely politically motivated and very dangerous to our country.

Our obsession with all things Trump is overwhelming and ridiculous.

Just tell me when it’s over. I don’t even want to see or hear him.

If there is any justice in this world, he’ll be spending the rest of his life in a jumpsuit that matches his hair. PJC
