Speaking to reporters after the verdict, Cramer recognized it as a liability going into the 2024 presidential election: “[Trump]s] first go-around, there were a lot of swing-type voters who were open to the opportunity and I think a lot of those voters abandoned him in the second go-around and [the verdict] reminds them of why,” he said. Cramer said he trusted the jury but still hasn’t ruled out voting for Trump: “Obviously I’d rather have a president that isn’t found liable for battery,” he said. “It’s not a disqualifier, but it’s certainly not a check in the plus column.”
