POLL: Republican Voters Remain Staunch Donald Trump Supporters After Mar-a-Lago Raid
Despite what some Never Trumpers say, former President Donald Trump is still a popular figure in Republican circles. According to a USA Today/Ipsos poll published on August 28, 2022, the majority of GOP voters believe he should receive the party’s nomination in 2024.
This poll was carried out following the FBI’s raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. The USA Today/Ipsos poll shows Trump’s control of the GOP is rock-solid despite the legal hiccups Trump is being afflicted by.
Approximately 59% of Republican voters indicated that Trump should be the Republican nominee in 2024 and that he “deserves re-election.” By contrast, 41% signaled that they want changes for the party and that the party should move on Trump.
On the other hand, 56% of Democratic voters want change within the party. Only 44% of Democratic voters support Biden as the 2024 Democratic nominee and believe that he deserves re-election.
82% of Republican voters are confident in Trump’s chances of winning the 2024 election. Only 60% of Democratic voters expressed similar beliefs about Biden.
Democratic voters gave Biden high favorability marks at 82%. Trump received an 81% favorability rating from GOP voters.
Overall, the GOP is Trump’s party. The right-wing populist wave he facilitated has undeniably changed the party and for the better. Now issues like opposing mass migration and perpetual wars have become the standard in the new re-aligned GOP.
Any Republican that dares challenge or commit actions that pose an existential political threat to Trump — voting to impeach him for example — will undeniably have their political career torched.
That’s how things roll in the Trumpian GOP and Republicans must get with the program lest they want to be politically vanquished.
