A Shocking Number Of Republicans Would Join Donald Trump In Third Party: Poll
A new poll found that Republican voters' loyalty to former President Donald Trump remains high, as does their ignorance about the Capitol uprising.
If Trump were to form his own political party, as he reportedly considered, a large number of his GOP supporters would follow him by a margin of 46% to 27%, with the rest undecided, according to Suffolk University / USA Today poll remains published on Sunday.
The results of 1,000 Republicans who voted for Trump to win a second term also showed that his supporters' unsubstantiated opposition to whoever was involved in the Jan. 6 siege of the Capitol did not abate.
Fifty-eight percent of Trump voters called the uprising "mostly an Antifa-inspired attack involving few Trump supporters," while 28 percent saw it as "a rally by Trump supporters, some of whom attacked the Capitol."
"It looked awful, but how do we know who actually attended?" Christina Rodriguez, 79, of Texas told USA Today.
A study earlier this month showed that the rioters arrested were mostly pro-Trump activists. The FBI has said there is "no evidence" that Antifa was involved in the uprising that resulted in at least five deaths.
Trump, who escaped conviction in a second impeachment trial for inciting violence, continues to falsely claim that the election was stolen from him.
