Majority Of Republican Voters Support Donald Trump Starting His Own Political Party

A majority of Republican voters back the idea of Donald Trump starting his own political party to rival the Republican and Democrat parties.

While Trump has left the White House, it doesn't mean he can't become President of the United States again.

We'll have to wait and see what happens with his impeachment trial after he was charged with inciting an insurrection, but if he's cleared, he could make a bid for the Commander in Chief in 2024.

It appears there would be overwhelming support if Trump made his own party if he didn't want to run for the Republicans.

A new Hill-HarrisX poll finds 64 per cent of people support the decision to carve out a new party in the American political landscape.

Out of that 64 per cent, there were 32 per cent of people who said they would very likely join.

Interestingly, 28 per cent of independents and 15 per cent of Democrats said they would also join a new political party led by Trump.

Ever since he left office, there have been rumblings all over Washington D.C. about the 45th President of the United States of America launching a new bid to leader, but under a different banner.

Dritan Nesho, CEO and chief pollster at HarrisX, told Hill.TV: "These numbers show that despite the Capitol riots Trump remains a political force to be reckoned with. He benefits from a diverse base of support making up over a third of voters, voters who are attracted to him on a number of issues that are yet to be properly addressed by, and coopted by, Democratic and Republican elites.

"If Trump were to split from the GOP and create his own party, polling suggests he might well create the second largest political party in the country, knocking the GOP down to third place."

But, he might not have to find a new home.

The Republican Party is set to invite Donald Trump to address its Spring meeting which also serves as a gathering for potential 2024 presidential candidates.

The meeting is said to be held on the weekend of April 9 to April 11 and it will be located in Palm Beach, Florida. Which is ideal really, considering that's where Mr Trump moved to when he left the White House on 20 January.

It is believed the 74-year-old could be mulling over another presidential bid, with the MailOnline suggesting he may be looking at launching a third political party called the Patriot Party.

He's also said numerous times in the public that he won't be disappearing from public life and has vowed to fight for all the people who believe in him.

However, if he's found guilty at his impeachment trial, he may not be able to take office for the rest of his life.
