Donald Trump responded perfectly after a new poll showed that the Republican Party is solidly behind him as the party leader.
According to a poll from CBS News, a whopping two-thirds of Republicans believe loyalty to Trump is important, while 67 percent believe Biden is not the legitimate winner of the 2020 election.
Trump hailed the findings in a statement issued by his political action committee.
”Breaking News! New polling by CBS News on the state of the Republican Party (which is very strong!). President Trump has a stronghold on the GOP,” Trump said.
“Eighty percent of Republicans agree with the removal of Liz Cheney from GOP Leadership and only 20% disagree,” he added. “The poll also showed that 67% of Republicans said that they do not consider Sleepy Joe Biden to be the legitimate winner of the 2020 Presidential Election. I agree with them 100%, just look at the facts and the data—there is no way he won the 2020 Presidential Election!”
Democrats should be very worried that they will lose control of the House in the 2022 midterm elections.
The Republican Main Street Partnership survey found that swing districts across the U.S. support “Trump policies” without the noise, meaning they may not necessarily support what Trump said, but they do like what the 45th president did and enacted as opposed to what Joe Biden is doing.
The Republican Main Street Partnership surveyed 600 registered voters across six battleground House districts in the South, Midwest, and Northeast.
The data revealed remarkably strong support for “conservative populist policy” reminiscent of the Trump administration’s legislative agenda.
“Competitive swing districts across the country are the key to Republicans winning back the majority in 2022,” said Sarah Chamberlain, president of the Republican Main Street Partnership. “Voters want good, commonsense, conservative policies, without the noise and rhetoric.”
The group announced earlier this year that it plans to invest $25 million in swing House districts to help the GOP recapture Congress and halt the advance of conservative provocateurs loyal to Trump. In its latest survey, 26% of respondents expressed a favorable opinion of President Joe Biden, who is proposing a series of liberal programs and trillions in government spending. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California fared worse, registering a 14% favorability rating. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York clocked in at 17%. House Republicans are just a handful of seats shy of the majority, with their bid to reclaim power in the 2022 midterm elections bolstered by decennial reapportionment and history.
Redistricting will alter district boundaries and gives Republicans a slight edge.
Messages that registered highest revolved around cracking down on China for “unfair trade practices, illegal cyberattacks and lying about COVID-19 and demanding justice for imprisoned religious minorities and pro-democracy activists.” Seventy-four percent of voters said they were more likely to support a Republican for Congress who ran on that message. Strengthening border security and stopping the surge of unaccompanied minors and opposing Biden’s “gun control actions” both polled between 65% and 70%. When asked if they preferred “someone who would uphold the institutions of government” or “an insurgent who will shake up the status quo,” 57% picked the former, while 31% went with the latter. Similarly, 56% said they wanted a candidate who “works across the aisle to get legislation passed” versus 35% who want a candidate who “holds firm to their belief regardless of circumstances.”
Thirty-seven percent cited as their top priority “D.C. corruption/dysfunction,” followed by 18% who said immigration, 10% who said healthcare, and 10% who said jobs and the economy. Interestingly, just 8% said “election reform” was a top priority.
“Efforts to overhaul election regulations in the states have been a major priority of Republican leaders and the GOP base in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, with many in the party agreeing with Trump’s claim that the election was stolen. In the survey, 32% of respondents described themselves as “very conservative,” with 27% saying they were “somewhat conservative” and 26% saying they were ‘moderate,'” the Examiner added.
