According to recent polling, nearly half of all voters support the FBI’s decision to execute a search warrant at former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Fourty-nine percent of registered voters in a recent Morning Consult-Politico survey agree with the decision, with 37 percent of those respondents strongly agreeing.

However, a whopping 68% of Democrats approved, while only 7% of Republicans did.

Searches were conducted on Monday, but the FBI and Justice Department have not yet disclosed their justifications. Trump and his supporters have accused the FBI’s search of being politically motivated, and they have been demanding an explanation from the Department of Justice.

Among Republicans, 63% called the search “an abuse of power that should be investigated,” while only 24% of Democrats felt the same way.

Seventy-nine percent of Democrats said the search was motivated by evidence that the former president had committed a crime, while sixty-nine percent of Republicans said they believed it was politically motivated to damage Trump’s career.

Weighted by age, education, race, marital status, home ownership, region, and presidential vote in 2020, the poll of 2,004 registered voters was conducted on August 10. The poll has a 2-percentage-point error range.
