Despite the violent riots on Capitol Hill, the painful loss in the presidential election and his second impeachment trial, Donald Trump, the former US president, still enjoys steady support among Republican voters. In a new poll published today (Monday) in the USA newspaper USA TODAY in collaboration with Sapphok University In Boston, that rose that Nearly half of Republican supporters, 46 percent, would vote for a Trump-led party if they formed one..
The survey also showed that only 27 percent said they would not leave their party, the rest have not yet decided. Half of those polled said the Republican Party should be “more loyal to Trump,” even at the cost of losing institutionalized Republicans. By contrast, nearly one-fifth of respondents (19 percent) answered that the party should become less loyal to Trump and be more connected to the institutional Republicans.
“We feel the Republicans are not fighting enough for us, and we have all seen Donald Trump fight for us the hardest he can, on any given day,” Brandon Caidel, a 27-year-old businessman from Milwaukee and a Republican supporter, said in an interview with him after answering the poll. “But you have institutional Republicans who agree with the institutional Democrats, and they never push back.”
As you may recall, Trump supporters broke into Congress during the debates held in January, including the final approval of the election results. This, after the former president entered conspiracy theories in which the US election was “stolen” and that the results were illegitimate. Five people were killed in the incident: a woman who raided the Capitol and was shot to death after entering the building, an officer in the Capitol police and three other assailants.
Following the events, Trump last month became the first president in history to be twice ousted by the House of Representatives but winning the Senate. 57 senators voted “guilty”, 43 voted “not guilty”, in order to convict needed a majority of 67, which was not achieved.
