Also, over 50 percent of respondents said the GOP should be “more loyal to Trump.”

And 58 percent believe the lie that the January 6th attack on the Capitol was “mostly an antifa-inspired attack that only involved a few Trump supporters.”.

“The GOP must focus on nominating candidates that can win in the fall of 2022 and stop the Trump litmus test,” political strategist Scott Reed told The Guardian. »
