A New Pew Reseach Poll Reveals Just How Deep the Divisions Within the Republican Party Are
According to a new poll from the Pew Research Center, Donald Trump’s approval rating is now 29% — the lowest of his presidency. Evidently, inciting a riot isn’t great for the ol’ reputation.
The survey was conducted from Jan. 8 -12 among 5,630 U.S. adults, most of whom voted in the 2020 election. Of those polled, 75% said the president is at least partly responsible for the “violence and destruction committed by some of his supporters;” 68% said they don’t want Trump to be a major political figure in the future; and 54% said the country would be better off if Trump was removed from office and Vice President Mike Pence finished the last few days of his term.
Finally, consensus … sort of. A deeper dive into the poll results reveal that while the majority of Americans agree that Donald Trump is an insurrection-inciting sham of a president, half of the country (aka Republicans) actually don’t agree on anything at all.
