Republicans Prefer Trump Party Over GOP By 2 To 1: Poll | Meet The Press | NBC News

  • Biden has been in office 36 days. If he were like Trump, 32 of those would have been spent on a golf course...

  • Republicans also prefer COVID-19 lies like not wearing a mask to science. Taiwan has a population of 23,000,000. It has 9 COVID-19 deaths, that's nine! NOW THAT'S LEADERSHIP!

  • So what this is saying is that the GOP is essentially dead. The republican party doesn't exist anymore. Not in its previous capacity at least. Most of the GOP have shifted to trumpism.

  • I think the actual number of Trump supporters is wildly exaggerated. Doubt if it extends much beyond 15 to 20 million people.

  • Joe Biden have an open plan to make white ppl and Christians minority in the USA. He says he is even proud of it, where he describe it in one interview in 2018. He says that in 2040 soemthing, very very soon, that goal gonna be achived ( at 10:00 of the video ). Angela Merkel doing the same thing to Europe trough EU excuse on "human rights", breaking all the laws of countries including German about somebody illegally entering soil. Because all that mass comming are illegal migrants, not refugees, much of the commmon ppl in the western countries doesnt realize the difference and what is done to their countries right now. But she keep it quet compared to Joe. In UK Boris Johnson keeps borders open still and doing all kind of nasty stuff (which lefties, greenies or whatever the f they name themself, wants and all the force behind "woke", which he actually obeys and clearly work for - trojan horse) oppose to his promises before the elections (core of Brexit) and the idea itself and ideology he presented himself. So China and CCP have a good laugh now, while islamic conquerors celebrate! ITS A WAR AGAINST WHITE CIVILIZATION, DEMOCRACY AND CHRISTIANS ON - helped by inner enemy and traitors in the west - great wealthy elite who already did a great job robbing and ripping off middle class and created gap between super rich and middle class like never before. They dont hide it anymore! They force now change of diff laws, bringing new oppressive ones too, to ease the things for themselves.

  • GOP SENATE Republicans continue to lie and mislead the American People ... again. Why are WE allowing these Republicans Senators to engage in divisive behavior, haven't they done so much damage to our country already? 4 long years of Lies and abuses of power is enough, the American People are suffering and they refuse to do anything to alleviate the crisis...even deliberately refusing to pass the new stimulus package to help the struggling American. Just like Cancun Ted Cruz of Texas... Republicans SENATE GOP have been on vacation, leaving the American People to die.

  • Do you believe that Herpes has a permanent cure? I have been spending lots of money weekly on buying the popular Valtrex and sometimes Acyclovir, to suppress my Herpes outbreaks as prescribed to me in the hospital. Anyone who has herpes can attest this, with all the pains and embarrassing symptoms. Unfortunately, I have found out that those hospital recommended products are frequently not effective at taking care of the problem but rather make you spend all your money. DR.Oluta herbal remedy will get to the root of the cause and cure you completely rather than suppress outbreaks with medication. And you will be happier, healthier, and outbreak free. He also has herbal remedies that can cure HIV, HPV, hepatitis and so on. He is the greatest of all herbal healers. His email and his Whatsapp number: +2349065326267. You can contact him and get a permanent cure to your genital and oral Herpes or HIV AIDS or Lungs cancer or Alzheimer's disease. or visit his facebook page;.

  • The Democrat Party is a criminal organization masquerading as a political institution. Many people seem to support and enjoy their fascist ways. Well, if that's what they want, OK. But after cornering the field and taking over all the institutions of power, and they are well on their way, there will be no going back. It will effect everyone, and those who enabled them may find that made the greatest mistake of their lives.

They turned a blind eye to all the facts, hid their heads in the sand and hoped it would go away.

Criminal Lawsuits can now proceed for the 140 Capitol cops, 550 congressional staffers and 512,590 dominated Covid families. 35 Officers have been investigated and found to have helped the rioters. How do you open a locked door? Ask a cop to open the door with the key.

  • How do you like Democrat Socialism so far? Here it is...Democrat Goals for Americans. De-fund Police. In the Senate (so theirs a record), Kamala Harris called it “re-imagine law enforcement." Biden recently stated he was in favor, quote “redirecting law enforcement funds.” Police funds will be redistributed to other programs. Watch Biden agree to "redirect" Law Enforcement funds. Citizenship for 20 to 50 million illegal aliens, DACA, TPS recipients, and their families with a cost of billions to taxpayers. Free Healthcare for Illegal aliens, DACA, TPS recipients & their families. Taxpayer-funded with one estimate at $52 trillion. (Watch Biden and Harris raise their hands in support of free healthcare for illegal aliens.) Biden has stated he will raise taxes to over 71 trillion. With this Democrat platform, he will have to. Sanctuary Cities & States. Biden & Harris supports sanctuary cities. End all deportations of illegal aliens, Bernie’s website calls it a “moratorium” on deportations. Reparations for the race’s harmed by Caucasians. Biden & Kamala Harris committed to Al Sharpton to support Sheila Jackson Lee’s reparations bill in the House. Basically, a tax will be levied on all people of Caucasian descent in America. The funds distributed to African Americans. (you can’t make this stuff up) De-fund & terminate border patrol & ICE. Funds redistributed to other programs. Climate Change: Biden's climate change plan will be another tax costing trillions of tax dollars & jobs. The 2nd Amendment will be under attack even more under Biden. Biden stated, "Beto O'Rourke will be his gun Czar," "Hel yeah I'm coming for your guns." Illegal Aliens, all non-citizens eligible for welfare, & food stamps. Again taxpayer-funded. (Elizabeth Warren’s plan adopted) Endorsed by Biden & Harris. More taxes. Free college for all, including illegal aliens & non-citizens (taxpayer-funded with estimates in the billions). Bernie Sanders's plan adopted. More taxes. Decriminalize illegal entry into our country. So no need for the Border Patrol. Open Borders. Drivers Licenses for illegal aliens (already happening in states with Democrat leadership.) Biden & Harris endorsed. Democrats permit and agree with the destruction and erasing of our history. Democrat Mayors & Governors remove our monuments/history rather than protect to appease their socialist base.

  • There's a percentage of people that truly like Trump There's a percentage of people that truly like Biden There's a percentage of people that definitely dislike Biden, but don't like Trump either There's a percentage of people that definitely dislike Trump, but don't like Biden either Groups 1 and 2 are very vocal, we can tell who these people are, and we know that those groups numbers are not that large. Which causes people to think "How did Trump get so many votes" and "how did Biden get so many votes", "There must be a conspiracy". Groups 3 and 4 are quiet groups, they do not like either candidate. But with no third party or candidate polling with much support, they knew that if they tried to vote independent, their voters would be useless. So these people all votes for the candidate they didn't dislike as much. This is where a lot of votes came from. not voting for who they want, but against the one they really don't want. None of the groups held a majority, likely none of them are larger than 30% of the people. People voted against the worst candidate, rather than one they truly want.

  • So if half of the republicans support Trump and the other half stay in the GOP and don't support him that means even if Trump wins the nomination and the democrats remain united behind their candidate Trump will loose massively in 2024. I am ok with that. Not only that but without a unified party in 2022 the Senate and the house will be even more secure for democrats. It seems Trump has effectively screwed conservatives for the next ten years.

  • Hopefully the GOP is divided by this in a way that they lose elections, forcing them to realize that telling lies comes at a cost. The best case scenario would be for Trump to run independently and/or cause a split so large that a significant proportion of republican voters abstain if their candidate doesn’t win their primary.
