Never Trump Republicans have a very big problem on their hands — former President Trump.
A majority of Republican voters said if the former president were to start a new political party they would likely join, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.
“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,” Chief pollster Dritan Nesho told The Hill.
Sixty-four percent of registered Republican voters in the Jan. 28-29 survey said they’d join a new political party led by the former president, including 32 percent who said they would very likely join.
By contrast, 36 percent of Republican respondents said they are either very or somewhat unlikely to join.
“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 co-opted by, Democratic and Republican elites,” Nesho said.
In other words, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) may have done what they long accused President Trump of doing — they destroyed the GOP.
Turn out the lights, Establishment Republicans. The party’s over.
