Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is getting in his digs at Donald Trump, saying he might vote to convict him on the impeachment count, now that he thinks he doesn’t need him.
And House Republicans voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to back Rep. Liz Cheney after she voted to impeach Trump, because they don’t think they need him.
But, they all do need him. They may regret rebuilding the swamp.
According to the Washington Examiner:
A majority of Republican voters would likely join a new political party if former President Donald Trump starts one, a national survey of Republicans found.
Sixty-four percent of Republicans said they would be inclined toward joining a Trump-formed party like the “MAGA Party” or the “Patriot Party.” Among that figure, 32% said they would be very likely to join one. Thirty-six percent of respondents said they would be either somewhat or very unlikely to leave the GOP.
The survey was conducted among 340 registered Republicans between Jan. 28-29, with a margin of error of plus or minus 5.3 points.
Fifteen percent of Democrats and 28% of independents would be inclined to join the theoretical Trump-centered party, the poll found.
“These numbers show that despite the Capitol riots Trump remains a political force to be reckoned with,” said Dritan Nesho, CEO and chief pollster at HarrisX.
