At least 31 cases have been filed across the United States arguing that former President Trump should be removed from the 2024 presidential ballot over his actions surrounding the events at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Cases in several states including Minnesota, New Hampshire, Michigan, and Florida have already been dismissed. Others have voluntarily withdrawn while others are pending.

Hans von Spakovsky says the efforts are failing because they're unconstitutional.

"They will only be successful if you get a judge who basically ignores the text of the 14th amendment... if that happens we're going to get very quick appeals filed that will end up with the case in front of the Supreme Court."
