Nearly two-thirds of Republicans say they would likely leave party if Trump starts new one: Poll

By: Zachary Halaschak | Washington Examiner | February 04, 2021 07:38 PM

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. “He benefits from a diverse base of support making up over a third of voters, voters who are attracted to him on a number of issues that are yet to be properly addressed by, and coopted by, Democratic and Republican elites.”

Of the voters surveyed, 37% said they would be likely to join a new political party started by the former president.

“If Trump were to split from the GOP and create his own party, polling suggests he might well create the second largest political party in the country, knocking the GOP down to third place,” Nesho said.
