Voters are ‘angry’ over Trump’s criminal charges because they don’t seem ‘legitimate’: ‘It just looks so fake,’ GOP senator says

Former President Donald Trump’s legal issues are a significant concern for Republicans seeking to focus on the 2024 campaign. While some argue that voters are incensed about Trump’s legal predicament because they believe he didn’t commit any crimes, others believe Trump’s standing among the GOP electorate is strengthening as he faces several upcoming trials.

Sen. Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming criticized Trump’s legal challenges as “fake” and “contraved,” while Sen. Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, a longtime Trump ally, said Americans wouldn’t condone the former president being convicted in court.

However, Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, a prominent Trump critic, finds the former president’s continued hold over the party difficult to comprehend. He believes that many people in the country are out of touch with reality and will accept anything Donald Trump tells them, referring to GOP voters who refuse to believe that President Joe Biden won the 2020 election.

Romney believes that there are many things about today’s electorate that he has a hard time understanding.
