The poll found that former juries were more inclined to trust the criminal justice system when compared with the general public.
76% of past jurors said they trusted jurors “a lot” or “a fair amount.” 58% of the people who weren’t on the jury agreed.
Americans are less optimistic about former President Trump’s possibility of getting a fair jury in one of his cases, which is about whether or not he broke the law by keeping secret papers.
The following question was posed to 1,017 people in the poll, specifically those who hadn’t served on a jury in the previous ten years: “If the cases against Donald Trump proceed to trial, how sure are you, if at all, that the court is going to be capable to find and seat jurors who are open to putting aside what they previously believed about Donald Trump and consider the case on the basis of the evidence that is presented?”
In total, 71% of those who answered said they were not confident, with 30% saying they were “not at all confident” and 41% saying they were “not too confident” that the panel would be fair.
Only 28% of people said they thought President Trump’s jury could be fair. 23% of those who thought this way said they were just “somewhat confident” that the judges would be fair. Only 5% of the people who answered said they were “very confident” that President Trump could get a fair trial.
In America, the law has become more political because the country has let diversity and equality policies become the rule. Also, the extremely high stakes in current politics have pushed elected officials to make policies that would feel more at home in a backward, Third World country.
All in all, the US is headed for bad times because its legal system is being used as a tool in political witch hunts and because people no longer trust institutions that have been trusted for a long time.
