Skip to comments.Shock poll: Trump 'Patriot Party' would win almost quarter of voters, drop GOP to third place

A Trump third party could provoke a pivotal realignment in American politics. With the support of 46% of registered voters in the new poll, Democrats would reap the benefits of a fractured opposition and entrench themselves as the nation's dominant party — even without majority support.
Among "very conservative" voters — who make up a disproportionately large bloc within the Republican primary electorate — a Trump Patriot Party crushes the GOP 55%-24%.
Should Trump remain in the GOP, his wide lead among these highly motivated voters affords him great leverage to influence the direction of the party by wielding the threat of conservative primary challenges against establishment Republicans ill at ease with the former president's combative brew of conservatism infused with populism and nationalism.

I have mixed feelings on this. But we have to do something to wake these establishment Republicans.
This is the democrat dream come true. Highly doubt it’ll happen though. I hope.
Death to the corrupt GOP. Not one more dollar...EVAH !!
I understand the logic behind taking over the party rather then start a third and I agree. However the un-representatives deserve this to happen to them.
The GOPe ARE DEMOCRAT!!
No, it would be a Patriots dream come true. GOP butt girls and boys have no balls.
GOPe fluffers on FR are in shock....
This is about the only poll I have seen in the last year that I believe
Let’s do it! If the GOP falls to last place then it will die on the vine.
It would do more than that.
It’s hardly been heard of yet, and it’s already at 25.00%
I’ll bet it would even break some of the old Democrats free
who simply could not go Republican.
The Republican Party is yesterdays trash.
Put it out for pickup.
That each of the parties would get around 25% and the dems 50%? Yeah, big shock.
Divide and conquer. We would never win again. Does the Bull Moose and Ross Perot ring a bell?
Does anyone remember the Whig party?
MAKE REPUBLICANS WHIGS AGAIN!
Killing the GOP would be pleasure. I love watch guys like Rove cry...
To those with mixed feelings, based on what I have read about New York, one person can be both the Republican and Patriot party nominee. Romney wouldn’t get both, of course. :)
GOP belongs to us
Almost a quarter? What is WRONG with people. Trump won 80% of the vote
We have tried and failed too many times with the GOP and failed when they betrayed us. It is time to abandon the faithless and backstabbing GOP!
