An overwhelming majority of President Trump supporters surveyed by top American pollster and data analyst, Frank Luntz say they’d still vote for the president again despite last week’s riot on Capitol Hill and his impeachment.
This week the House of Reps charged Trump with inciting insurrection and impeached him for a second time in the space of one year.
But it seems that hasn’t reduced his fan base.
Frank Luntz tweeted:
“Over the weekend, I did a poll of Trump voters after the storming of the U.S. Capitol. I asked them what was the greatest threat to America’s security. Their top responses: • Socialism: ??% • The Radical Left: ??% • Fake News Media: ??%
“Despite their criticism of his conduct since November 3rd and last week, ??% of Trump voters say they’d still vote for him if another presidential election were held today,” Luntz added.
“Only 25% of Trump voters polled stated that the president was responsible for the Capitol Hill riot, which left five people dead and sparked a push to impeach him. Sixty percent said that Vice President Mike Pence acted more appropriately than Trump during the aftermath of the riot.
“Additionally, 78% of the 800 Trump voters polled said they agree with the president’s claim that the election was “stolen” from him, and 67% believe Trump would be the winner if votes were “counted accurately and fairly.”
“When asked whether the president should continue his fight to stay in the White House, voters were split with 50% saying he should and 50% saying he should leave”.
Trump is set to leave office on the 20th of January 2021.
