Why Republican Voters Won’t Abandon Trump

While Republican politicians are backing away from Trump, the GOP base is embracing him even more. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/join

“WASHINGTON ― House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is done defending Donald Trump, but he won’t unendorse him ― at least, not yet.

Over the past 48 hours, influential Republicans have greeted the latest batch of lewd, misogynistic remarks from their party’s standard-bearer, Donald Trump, with a mixture of belated revulsion and resistance, prompting withdrawals of support and renewed calls for him to quit the presidential race. However, it would appear that rank-and-file GOP voters are, once again, rejecting these calls from their party’s elites, and are prepared to stick by Trump’s side, at least for now.

Those are the findings of the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll, the first of its kind to attempt to gauge the public impact of Trump’s now-infamous commentary about women with Billy Bush, who was then at “Access Hollywood.” This new poll found that while nearly three-quarters of all respondents had a negative reaction to hearing these remarks, there was a distinctly “partisan element” to the respondents’ reactions.

According to Politico, after watching a video of Trump’s remarks, “10 percent of Republicans said the video gave them a positive feeling,” while only 22 percent of GOP respondents rated the video a “zero (very negative).” In terms of favorability, “just 48 percent of GOP voters said it makes them feel less favorably toward Trump, while 36 percent said it doesn’t affect their opinions.”

Trump Continues To Ask Bernie Voters To Support Him

On Wednesday morning, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump responded to Democratic rival Hillary Clinton‘s blistering attack speech with an address of his own, and he kicked it off with an explicit plea to supporters of independent Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential runner-up Bernie Sanders, who still has not conceded the nomination to Hillary.
