(PoliticalLookout.com)- Just as President Donald Trump commits himself to helping the Republican Party take back control of the House of Representatives in 2022, a new poll from Rasmussen Reports reveals that a majority of GOP voters want the former president to start a new party.
Mitch McConnell, are you listening?
A survey performed between January 21 and 24 this year asked 1,000 likely voters whether they believed it was a good idea or a bad idea for former President Trump to start a third party.
Some 45% of respondents said that they believe it is a bad idea, but a majority of Republican voters – some 53%, in fact – said that they think it’s a good idea. 41% of everybody asked about the president’s rumored plans believed that it is a good idea.
President Donald Trump reportedly spoke to his closest confidantes about the possibility of establishing a third party in the days and weeks following the November presidential election, but in recent weeks has reaffirmed his commitment to building back the Republican Party.
Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, denied all rumors that the president would be starting a new party.
“I’ve talked to the president. I’ve talked to others around the president, who are talking to him every day,” she said. “He’s not going to start a third party.”
President Donald Trump this week met with Republican House leader Kevin McCarthy to discuss efforts to win back control of the House in 2022.
While it showed the former president’s commitment to the Republican Party – a commitment that will likely only come if Republicans that attacked him are primaried before the next election – it also angered some of the president’s base.
Pro-Trump activist Brigitte Gabriel said that McCarthy “does not deserve President Trump’s time.”
Kevin McCarthy does not deserve President Trump’s time. He should be grateful that he made the time for him.

Commentator Jared Chambers criticized Donald Trump Jr.’s support of McCarthy, also, calling the GOP leader “two-faced.”
Some of you wonder why I’m far past Trump and his family having a place leading us. You shouldn’t.
I thank him and them for what they did–it’s more than they get credit for.
But they’re still propping up the corruptards who helped take them down. McCarthy is two-faced… https://t.co/elR7YkX3zf

If former President Trump doesn’t start a new party, the only question is…how will he reform and improve the GOP?
