Poll: 64 Percent of GOP Voters Would Join Trump If He Started a New Party


In a blow to the establishment GOP, a new Hill-HarrisX poll shows an overwhelming percentage of Republican voters would join a new political party established by former President Donald Trump.

The survey asked how likely voters would be to join a Trump-led party.

64 percent of Republican voters said they would be likely to cross over, with half of those saying they would be “very likely” to join.

The survey also found that a surprising chunk of independent voters (28 percent) and Democrats (15 percent) said they would sign up for a third party formed by Trump.

Will Trump Form a New Party?

The Wall Street Journal reported in January that Donald Trump is interested in creating a new third party once he leaves office – with rumors indicating it would be dubbed the ‘Patriot Party.’

The Journal points out that Trump “has a large base of supporters” but adds the effort “would require a significant investment of time and resources.”

Dritan Nesho, CEO and chief pollster at HarrisX, notes the latest poll shows “Trump remains a political force to be reckoned with.”

How much sway does he have?

“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.

Voters Are Siding With Trump

Reports last month indicated Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had signaled support for impeachment, thinking the trial could help the GOP get rid of Trump and his movement.

The Daily Mail at the time said GOP sources indicated there is a “better than 50/50” chance McConnell votes to convict Trump in next week’s impeachment trial because he “wants him purged from the GOP.”

McConnell would later vote that the House impeachment was unconstitutional but has still not said whether or not he would vote to convict.

Rather than seeing him purged, however, Republican voters aren’t wavering on their support of Trump, and this new third-party poll is just another sign that he still holds political leverage whether within the GOP or not.

poll from Axios-Ipsos shows voters are taking sides – and it isn’t with the establishment.

The results show a vast majority of Republicans do not hold Trump responsible for the Capitol riots, believe he had a right to challenge the election, and a whopping 92 percent still see him as their preferred nominee in 2024.

Another tell over the fissure being created in the Republican party – a report earlier this week that 7 out of the 10 Republican lawmakers who voted in favor of impeaching Trump are already facing primary challenges for their congressional seats.
