Pollster sounds alarm: Letitia James’ move to seize Trump’s property could backfire

If the New York Attorney General Letitia James seizes Donald Trump‘s properties, she could help him win the presidential election, a pollster has said.

Speaking to CNN, Frank Luntz said the move would make the Republican go up in the polls and called the opposition to Trump “pathetic.”

Trump has until March 25 to come up with a bond amount or James could begin seizing some of his assets and properties after Judge Arthur Engoron ruled that Trump has to pay roughly $454 million, with interest included, in penalties for fraud.

The February ruling stated that Trump and top executives at the Trump Organization inflated the value of his assets to obtain more favorable terms from lenders and insurers. The lawsuit, brought by New York AG James, initially sought $250 million in damages, but she later increased this figure to $370 million, plus interest.

This week, the former president’s legal team said paying the full civil fraud penalty would be “a practical impossibility,” leading to speculation that James could soon start seizing the president’s properties or that he may be forced to sell off some of his real estate empire to pay the fine.

“You’re going to create the greatest victimhood of 2024, and you’re going to elect Donald Trump,” Luntz said.
