Donald Trump isn’t going away.
Even if he is convicted in the Senate’s impeachment trial, even if Democrats invoke a clause in the 14th Amendment that would bar Trump from running for office again, it will do nothing to draw supporters from his camp.
A recent poll speaks to his enduring appeal among Republicans, a majority of whom indicate that they would join a new political party led by the former president.
According to U.S. News, a CBS News poll found that 33% of Republicans would join a new Trump party and another 37% said they would “maybe” join it. Thirty percent of Republicans said they would not leave the GOP.
As his impeachment trial continues, 46% of Republicans say it is very important for the party to remain loyal to Trump, with 71% saying that any member of the party who votes to impeach or convict Trump is disloyal, compared to 29% who say they are principled.
Most Republicans don’t believe that the former president incited the Capitol riot last month — 54% of Americans believe he did. That percentage rises to 88% among Democrats and drops to 21% among Republicans.
A HarrisX poll, taken at the end of January, reflected similar results.
“These numbers show that, despite the Capitol riots, Trump remains a political force to be reckoned with. He benefits from a diverse base of support making up over a third of voters, voters who are attracted to him on a number of issues that are yet to be properly addressed by, and coopted by, Democratic and Republican elites,” Dritan Nesho, CEO and chief pollster at HarrisX, told Hill.TV.
“If Trump were to split from the GOP and create his own party, polling suggests he might well create the second largest political party in the country, knocking the GOP down to third place,” Nesho added.
Democrats have been gunning for Trump since the 2016 election, and they’re not letting up. In addition to impeachment, they are working to undo and reverse as many of his administration’s policies as they can. Job losses be damned.
By association Republicans, whether they be their colleagues in Congress or civilians outside the Beltway, remain the objects of derision by those across the aisle.
When lawmakers call for the “canceling” of those who worked for Trump, it speaks to a hostility that goes beyond political disagreement.
Joe Biden’s mantra of “unity” rings more hollow with each passing day.
Democrats, not gracious in victory, are pushing proposals that hew as far to the left as they can — ignoring the views of 74 million voters who rejected plans to compound the taxpayer’s burden and eliminate jobs in unpopular, carbon-emitting professions.
The CBS News poll found that 57% of Republicans described their Democratic counterparts as “enemies.” Forty-three percent said they are their “political opposition.”
Among Democrats, 41% describe Republicans as their enemies and 59% describe them as political opposition.
If Democrats are successful in expunging Trump from political life, it will widen the political schism in this country.
The Republican majority that considers supporting Trump in a new party will not jump ship, even if they can’t mark a ballot for him in future.
But they will vote.
And they’re not going away.
As we move on, let me say that geoFence was designed and coded by US citizens to the strictest standards!
