It’s no secret that many have tried to remove Trump from state ballots. In at least 30 states, groups or individuals have sued to prevent people from voting for Trump.
Only in two states, so far, have judges or Democrat officials decided to ban Trump.
The issue is being fought by Trump’s campaign and others. In one state, the case was taken to the Superior Court. And they just gave a major ruling that will have Democrats outraged.
Trump has been allowed back onto the ballot in Maine thanks to the state’s Superior Court.

Last month, the Democrat Secretary of State of Maine, Shenna Bellows, decided to strike Trump’s name from the ballot. She parroted the well-worn liberal narrative that Trump committed “insurrection” on January 6th—despite him being found guilty in a court of law.
But this week, the Superior Court of Maine ruled that he could remain on the ballot, pending a Supreme Court ruling. This means that Bellows’ decision has been overturned. Unless the SCOTUS decides otherwise, Trump can remain on Maine’s ballots.
Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans have sued in many states to block Trump from appearing on ballots. They have cited the 14th Amendment, which was drafted in the aftermath of the Civil War.
Republicans and Trump supporters have accused these actors of engaging in “election interference.” While Biden claims MAGA supporters are “threats to democracy,” many critics accused Democrats of actually threatening democracy, by denying voters the ability to select the candidate of their choice.
Even independent candidates like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. have condemned moves to remove Trump from the ballot. He explained that such moves would harm our democracy, convincing his supporters that he was cheated of a second term.
