While establishment Republicans move to expunge Donald Trump from the head of the GOP, his massive voting base is expressing the opposite view.
According to pollster Jim McLaughlin, Trump is becoming more popular every time House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President Joe Biden, and Democrats make a move to undo a Trump policy.
McLaughlin, who conducted the McLaughlin & Associates CPAC preference poll, found that many Americans are looking back at Trump’s agenda and accomplishments and missing it.
“Democrats, mainstream media, Big Tech, and the Washington establishment on both sides of the aisle are trying to cancel President Trump and his supporters, and the poll shows they won’t be silenced and they won’t be canceled. If anything, President Trump and his agenda are more popular than ever,” he told the Washington Examiner.
“The more they attack his issue agenda and his people, the stronger President Trump gets,” he said.
McLaughlin pulled these findings from his CPAC poll to make his point:
- Ninety-seven percent want Congress to do more to fight for their conservative agenda.
- Ninety-three percent said there was voter fraud that helped Biden win.
- Ninety-three percent said Biden doesn’t have the mental capacity to be president.
- Ninety-six percent said the Washington establishment thinks they are better than ordinary people.
- Ninety-nine percent said we need to get the children back to school and open the economy.
- Sixty-three percent said they are angry/disappointed with the Republican National Committee.
“His stuff worked. His issue agenda was a success,” said the pollster.
And the GOP’s base hasn’t softened on its distrust of “the swamp.”
“They hate Washington, the establishment, and the elites. He fights them in a way no one else can,” he said, adding, “No one connected better with middle America than the New York billionaire, and that’s all him.”
He also said that the former president is the GOP for now.
“President Trump has changed the GOP for the better. He has transformed us from the party of the corporate elites to the party of the forgotten men and women. That’s why he significantly raised GOP numbers with blacks, Hispanics, Catholics, blue-collar workers,” said McLaughlin.
“The truth is, the Republican Party needs President Trump right now a lot more than he needs them,” he added.
If Trump runs again, there’s no doubt the party is behind him and he would win the nomination.
According to a Washington Times/CPAC poll, over 95% of respondents approved of the job that Trump did as president.
More than two-thirds of respondents said that they wanted Trump to run again, while 15% said they did not, and 17% were unsure.
A staggering 95% of respondents want the GOP to continue pursuing the policies of Trump.
If Trump were to run for president again, 55% of respondents said they would vote for him.
According to a new poll from YouGov/Economist, Trump’s popularity is +75 with Republicans and has continued to soar.
The poll found his favorability rating was 87 percent among GOP members, while just 12 percent viewed the 45th president unfavorably.
