Protest backfires; Florida Republicans ‘more likely’ to back Trump after Chicago riot

A Donald Trump Chicago rally that turned ugly when hundreds of violent, leftist rioters showed up to protest the event may have benefited the GOP front-runner’s street cred in the Florida primary taking place today.

A new poll out from Monmouth found that 22 percent of voters said they are now “more likely” to vote for Trump in Florida following the Chicago riots, according to a report by the Washington Examiner.

Meanwhile, 66 percent of voters said the Chicago riots will have no impact on whether or not they vote for Trump and 11 percent said they were less likely to vote for Trump due to the riots.

Controversy has continued to surround the Trump campaign after protesters shut down Trump’s Chicago rally, leaving thousands of Trump supporters who were there to attend the event disappointed.

Just after the Chicago incident, an unhinged left-winger at an Ohio Trump rally jumped past Secret Service detail and attempted to attack Trump. Afterward, CNN had the audacity to give the attacker, a man who organized an American flag-stomping rally at a college, a national platform.

As BizPac Review reported, the attacker told CNN that Trump was a “bully” and a “coward.”
