Survey Shows Trump Third Party is a Good Idea

January 27, 2021

A brand new survey of likely U.S. voters shows that most GOP voters say it’s a good idea for Trump to start a third party.

We can all remember Donald J. Trump on January 20, 2021 publicly declaring, “We will be back in some form”. Now, a brand new survey by Rasmussen Reports (RR) of likely U.S. voters shows that most GOP voters say it’s a good idea for Trump to start a third party.

Coincidence?

According to RR, “while advisers to Donald Trump have denied this week that the former president is planning to organize a third party, most Republican voters think a separate Trump party would be a good idea.”

Brand new RR national telephone and online survey of likely U.S. voters finds that 53% of GOP voters say it’s a good idea for Trump to start a third party, while 30% of Republicans say a third party would be a bad idea and 17% are not sure.

People were asked a couple of questions:
1) Former President Trump has suggested he may start a third party. Is this a good idea or a bad idea?
2) If former President Trump started a third party, would you consider the Trump party better or worse than the Republican Party, or about the same?

The survey of 1,000 U.S. likely voters was conducted on January 21 and 24, 2021, and released on January 26, 2021 by RR, which declares that “the margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.”

On the same day (January 26, 2021) Texas won an action on its first lawsuit against new federal government. Last week Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, filed a lawsuit against the new administration for its “illegal deportation freeze”: an Executive Order (entitled, “Immediate 100-Day Pause on Removals”) was signed on January 20, 2021 putting a “temporary” 100-day freeze on “deportations of illegal aliens”.

Drew B. Tipton, US District Judge of S.D. Tex. (United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas) temporarily blocked that Executive Order. “Border States like Texas pay a particularly high price when the federal government fails to faithfully execute our country’s immigration laws,” Paxton wrote. Texas is the first State to sue new administration, yet it seems more States are going to join and sue new federal government, in case it fails to execute federal laws.
