Trump widens GOP lead after Mar-a-Lago raid: Poll
Sees edge over Florida's DeSantis grow by 10 points
The FBI raid on former President Donald Trump‘s estate bolstered his support among GOP primary voters and widened his lead over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, according to a new poll.
The Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 57% of primary voters would back Mr. Trump if he ran and the primary were held now, a 4-point jump from the 53% who backed the ex-president in a mid-July poll.
Mr. DeSantis, meanwhile, saw his support slide from 23% to 17%, meaning Mr. Trump saw a 10-point boost over his nearest rival after agents searched his Mar-a-Lago estate.
The poll was conducted Wednesday, following the Aug. 8 raid, though before the courts released documents showing what agents recovered from the site.
The inventory included documents considered classified. Investigators are probing whether Mr. Trump retained records that belonged to the government.
The poll surveyed 2,004 registered voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. --->READ MORE HERE

Trump says FBI seized three of his passports during raid, calls search an 'assault on a political opponent':
Former President Donald Trump said the FBI seized three of his passports during its raid on Mar-a-Lago last week, calling the unprecedented search an "assault."
"Wow! In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else," Trump posted on his Truth Social account. "This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never seen before in our Country."
He added: "Third World!"
The FBI carried out a search warrant at the former president's private residence in Palm Beach, Florida, last week, as agents seized classified records, including some marked as top secret. Trump is disputing the classification of those records, saying the records have been declassified.
Sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News Digital over the weekend that the FBI also seized boxes containing records covered by attorney-client privilege and potentially executive privilege during its raid. --->READ MORE HERE
