56 percent in new poll willing to see Trump disqualified from ballots in all or some states.

A majority of Americans in a new survey say they would support the Supreme Court either disqualifying former President Trump from presidential ballots across the country or letting states decide whether to include him on their ballots.

Nearly one-third — 30 percent — of respondents in the ABC News/Ipsos survey said they think the justices should order that Trump be removed from ballots across the country, and 26 percent said they believed the matter should be left up to election officials in each state. Additionally, 39 percent of Americans surveyed said they think the Supreme Court should order Trump be kept on the ballot in all states.

More than half of the survey’s respondents, 53 percent, said they believe the justices in the nation’s highest court will rule on the basis of law on the matter, while 43 percent said they think they will rule based on their political views on Trump.The Colorado Supreme Court and Maine’s secretary of state each ruled last month to bar Trump from appearing on their respective state ballots under the 14th Amendment’s “insurrection clause,” citing his actions surrounding the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to take up whether the former president can be disqualified in Colorado, and a decision is expected shortly after arguments are heard Feb. 8.Trump has appealed the Maine secretary of state’s ruling , which will now head to the Kennebec County Superior Court. The case could also ultimately reach the U.S. Supreme Court.

Dozens of other challenges to Trump’s eligibility to appear on ballots in the 2024 election under the 14th Amendment have been filed around the country, but many have been rejected by lower courts.

Slightly more respondents in the new survey said they support the criminal charges Trump is facing over his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election than they do the decisions kicking him off the primary ballot.

Among the respondents, 56 percent said they support the criminal charges brought against the former president, while just less than half, at 49 percent, support the Colorado and Maine rulings

The survey was conducted Jan. 4-8 in English and Spanish among 2,228 adults and has a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
