Newest poll shows nearly half of Trump supporters are ready to leave Republican Party if Trump created the third political party
After former President Donald Trump announced that he could create his own political party apart from the Republican, according to the recent polls, about 46% of his supporters would leave GOP for new party by the 45th president of the U.S.
A new Suffolk University-USA Today poll was released over the weekend and it showed that nearly half of Trump supporters are ready to follow him.
It is unclear now what form of government this third-party will follow and what political agenda it will have. But Trump senior adviser Jason Miller remains convinced that "Trump effectively is the Republican Party."
"The only chasm is between Beltway insiders and grassroots Republicans around the country. When you attack President Trump, you're attacking the Republican grassroots,” Miller said.
The poll also showed that half of the respondents think GOP should be more loyal to Trump. In fact, nearly 20% said that the Republicans should already get rid of the loyalty to the former president.
Trump’s ally Senator Kevin Cramer, however, rebutted the idea of the third political party by Donald Trump.
"The president wanted me to know, as well as a handful of others, that the president is a Republican, he is not starting a third party and that anything he would do politically in the future would be as a Republican," Cramer said in late January.
Newt week, Donald Trump is scheduled to make his first post-presidential appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference, according to Axios. And during this conference Trump is planning to declare control of the Republican Party, which still stays divided after the second failed impeachment trial over Trump. His almost imperial plan is connected to his intention to become "presumptive 2024 nominee" ay the next presidential elections.
