The 45th President issued a statement Sunday evening via “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” regarding a poll conducted by CBS News on “the state of the Republican Party” after the removal of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and over the November 2020 general election.
A new CBS/YouGov poll of 951 national Republicans shows that 80% surveyed support the ouster of Rep. Liz Cheney from her leadership position last week and that 67% of them do not see President Joe Biden as the legitimate winner of the 2020 presidential election between him and former President Donald Trump. To Republicans, Biden is illegitimately elected, The Floridian reported.
In his statement, President Donald Trump doubled-down on his belief (belief of many Americans) that he won the election and Joe Biden and Democrats stole it.
Breaking News! New polling by CBS News on the state of the Republican Party (which is very strong!). “President Trump has a strong hold on the GOP.” 80% of Republicans agree with the removal of Liz Cheney from GOP Leadership and only 20% disagree.
The poll also showed that 67% of Republicans said that they do not consider Sleepy Joe Biden to be the legitimate winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.
I agree with them 100%, just look at the facts and the data—there is no way he won the 2020 Presidential Election! Continued Below
President Donald Trump’s statement via “The Desk of Donald J. Trump”:
Eighty percent of Republicans who’d heard about the vote agree with Cheney’s removal — they feel she was off-message, unsupportive of Mr. Trump, and that she’s wrong about the 2020 presidential election. To a third of them, and most particularly for those who place the highest importance on loyalty, Cheney’s removal also shows “disloyalty will be punished”, CBS News reported.
There is little question that Trump is the undisputed leader of the Republican Party, and most elected Republican officials, both at the state and federal level, tend to agree, as reported by The Floridian.
Republicans say that Mr. Trump himself represents their views just as well as they think the party does; it’s a personal connection to him we’ve seen for years. Today, loyalty also means they specifically want the party to follow more of the former president’s examples across a range of items, including economics, issues of race and immigration, how to treat the media, using power and leadership, generally, CBS News reported.
