Following the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) raid that was executed on Monday at Former President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate in Florida, it seems his political base is being galvanized.
Republican voters are viewing him as a victim of yet another failed attempt by a far-left corrupt regime, intent on incriminating the former Commander-in-Chief.
The CPAC 2022 straw poll, done yearly to measure support from top Republican candidates for office, put the former President in first place — with an overwhelming 99 percent of the vote. Those strong margins came even before the raid took place, which might indicate he’s enjoying an even bigger surge in support that’s yet to be documented.
Following the raid on Trump’s home, his apparent top primary rival, Gov. Ron Desantis (R-Fla.), issued a statement chastising the Biden administration for their poor attempt to continue this long-ran witch hunt. Desantis stated this was yet, “another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents.”
The mainstream media is still attempting to drum up everything in their arsenal to justify the seemingly political raid. The only message that is resonating among the collective, however, is that Trump was targeted unfairly and unjustly by a corrupted federal bureaucracy which he swore to dismantle.
Even more surprising was that multiple prominent Democrats have come out condemning the raid on Trump. Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo remarked on Twitter that the “DOJ must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives or it will be viewed a political tactic.”
Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang took to Twitter to convey his uneasiness with the situation, stating, “I’m no Trump fan, and I want him as far away from the White House as possible. But a fundamental part of his appeal has been that it’s him against a corrupt government establishment. This raid strengthens that case for millions of Americans who will see this as unjust persecution.”

Trump isn’t backing down either, making multiple promises of taking “back our country” in 2024 at his ‘Save America’ rallies.
While some may have thought the curtains had closed on Trump, many speculate this is only the beginning — following the corrupt theatrics of the DOJ.
With fortified numbers, a heavily motivated base, and a theme of having a corrupt government hot on his tail, it’s becoming increasingly clear — the left may have done Trump and made their most despised member of the GOP even more popular among the American people.
