(RoyalPatriot.com )- According to a recent survey, more than half of Republicans say that demonstrating allegiance to Donald Trump should be a must for potential candidates for the Republican Party in the 2018 elections.
According to the results of a poll conducted by CBS News and YouGov, a total of 52 percent of Republican voters said that “showing loyalty” to the previous president is what they want candidates for the Republican Party to emphasize in their campaigns in the lead-up to the midterm elections in November.
Although the former president is supporting candidates for all levels of government who are willing to push his Make America Great Again (MAGA) policies, less than half of Republicans (44 percent) say they want GOP candidates to focus on the results of the 2020 election.
Only 26 percent of Republicans would like to see nominated candidates for Congress who would focus on investigating the riot at the Capitol. This may not come as a surprise, given that Trump is widely accused of inciting the attack on January 6. However, it is still interesting to note that this number is low.
Anthony Salvanto, the director of elections and surveys at CBS News, commented on the results by saying that within the Republican rank-and-file, there’s a divide over how much they want to hear about loyalty to former President Donald Trump. Some of which we’re seeing play out in the primaries right now.
While a slim majority of Republicans support the idea that their party’s candidates should emphasize their devotion to Trump, almost half do not.
The results of a survey conducted by CBS show that while there is a nearly even split on whether or not Trump’s influence should reign over the midterm elections, other critical concerns are generally viewed as the primary emphasis for Republican candidates.
According to the study’s findings, ninety percent of Republicans want candidates for the midterm elections to address increasing prices, and eighty-six percent want the Republican party to have candidates for Congress this year who emphasize “traditional values.”
Most anyone who casts a vote for a Presidential candidate would like to see that candidate win, and they certainly don’t want to see them undermined by their party and have the agenda they voted for stymied every step of the way.
