A new Suffolk University-USA Today poll found that nearly 46 percent of Republicans said they would be willing to ditch the GOP and join a “Trump party.”
27% said they would stay with the GOP and the rest were undecided.
The report also finds “Trump voters are prepared to punish those who crossed him. Eight in 10 say they would be less likely to vote for a Republican candidate who supported Trump’s impeachment, as 10 representatives did in the House.”
Brandon Keidl, 27, a Republican and small-business owner from Milwaukee said “we feel like Republicans don’t fight enough for us, and we all see Donald Trump fighting for us as hard as he can, every single day.”
“But then you have establishment Republicans who just agree with establishment Democrats and everything, and they don’t ever push back,” he added.
Jason Miller, a senior adviser to Trump, told The Hill this week “our goal is to win back the House and Senate.”
“We’ll be looking at open seats, Democratic-held seats, and maybe there are places where we look for upgrades and more MAGA-friendly voices. I have no idea why McConnell decided to lash out at the president this way, but when you do, you can expect to get hit back,” he added.
