Bolton is Not a Donald Trump fan anymore….
But the results are from 1,000 likely midterm voters with mostly GOPer’s in the group….
It’s a real early poll….
But it’s does show something I HAVE been saying here…
Donald Trump support IS softening among Republican voters…..
A new nationwide survey by John Bolton Super PAC of voters reveals that a majority of Republican primary voters now agree “that a new Republican candidate – a fresh face – would be a stronger candidate to defeat Joe Biden in 2024.” That is a major shift since our first national poll taken in April where 50% of primary voters said Trump would be the strongest candidate to defeat Biden while 36% said another candidate would be stronger. That’s a shift of 17 points away from Trump and 16 points to a “fresh face” – a 33-point swing.
Specifically, Republican primary voters disapprove of Trump’s handling of the January 6 riot, sided with Pence over certifying electoral college voters, and are concerned over the recent Trump Organization indictments.
Ambassador John Bolton:
“The significant amount of data in this poll should be of considerable interest to Republican candidates at all levels: presidential, congressional, and state/local.
The data show the fissures in Trump’s base are expanding, and show that GOP voters still prize good policy above anyone’s personality.”
Other key findings from the poll include:
- A third of Trump’s most ardent supporters – Republican primary voters who are Very Favorable to Trump – now say a fresh face would be a stronger candidate against Biden than Trump. Of Republican primary voters who are less ardent Trump supporters – voters who are Somewhat Favorable to Trump – 69% said a fresh face will be a stronger candidate…
