Does President Biden’s Son Deserve To Be In Jail?

GOP Voters Favor Trump for His Reluctance to Compromise

The Pew Research Center’s recent poll highlights a significant division within the Republican Party, particularly between those who support former President Donald Trump and backers of other GOP presidential candidates. The findings reveal that 63% of Trump’s supporters are less likely to favor bipartisan cooperation, preferring instead to push for Republican policies. This stance is more pronounced among Trump’s base than among supporters of other Republican primary hopefuls.

In contrast, the Republican electorate overall appears divided on the issue of compromise, with about half advocating for it. Supporters of Nikki Haley, the former U.N. ambassador, show the greatest tendency towards bipartisan efforts, with 72% in favor of working with Democrats. Slightly more than half of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ supporters also lean towards compromise rather than strict partisanship.

Despite these differences in approach to political collaboration, Trump maintains a significant lead in national GOP primary polls. According to The Hill/Decision Desk HQ, Trump leads the primary field by 51 points, with DeSantis and Haley both trailing at around 11% support.

The poll also suggests that a majority of GOP voters, about two-thirds, believe the primary race will not be highly competitive, and 56% view the campaign as somewhat uneventful. As the Iowa caucus approaches, Trump continues to have a strong presence in the state, leading with 50% support, while DeSantis and Haley follow with 19% and 17%, respectively.

This Pew Research Center poll was conducted with approximately 5,200 respondents between late November and early December and has a margin of error of 1.8%.
