91 federal and state charges.
At last count, Trump is facing 717 years in prison.
Meanwhile, the race is tied and Trump is leading Biden by 8 points with Independents in the latest Marist poll. He never polled this well in the 2020 election. I don’t think he polled this well against Hillary Clinton either in 2016. Even if you believe he was cheated in 2020 and lost due to massive election fraud, it was still a squeaker. The polls had him losing by a landslide, but it was close.
If anything, Ross is downplaying what a clusterfuck this is going to be when Trump is convicted next year and sent to prison. So much could happen between now and then. Ukraine could really start losing the war. The economy or stock market could get wobbly. Putin and the Saudis could drive the price of oil through the roof. Trump could be AHEAD in the polls when he is sent to prison!
If you think the country is just going to accept that as “the rule of law,” you are dreaming. Trust in elections will be toast. The credibility of the justice system will be toast. Millions of people already believe the system is rigged against them. Sending Trump to prison will confirm this assumption.
