In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Nearly two-thirds of GOP voters would be likely to join a new Trump party

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.

    1. Panama John, correct we can’t split the party. However, GOP needs Trump because he is a popular figure that will campaign if given the opportunity. The way the Democratic Party is governing they should flip congress in 2022… given a fair election.

    2. It does not matter if the GOP party is split, or not. It would not surprise me if the Democrats loose more members to the new party then the Republicans. Very few Replublicans stand up for anyone but themselves. I do not care if Trump starts a third party or not. All I know is that I am not going to vote for any Republicans or Democrats in 2022. My current choice is now the Libertarian party. I had it with the Republican party. When it comes down to doing something that is right, they always buckle under if their vote would have made a difference.

  1. The heart of the current Republican party IS Trump. Why would you throw away what has already been won? The 74, 75? million (R) voters strong should stay pat. We ARE the Republican party for the future.

  2. Trump represented the independent soul of the country. Those hard working people who just want Govt to protect the border, resources, and our nation from enemies. Otherwise, get out of the way.
    That thinking will no die on the vine… may be currently dormant, but it will rise once again, perhaps with a new face.

    1. That it will rise again is my sincere hope and desire. It won’t be easy. Unfortunately, there are currently too many powerful dark forces working overtime to make sure it won’t rise again. I won’t enumerate the dark forces; it’s too long a list. But for the good of our country and the good of the average hard working American, I pray that it will rise again.
