Even with Donald Trump out of the White House, his political foes still have it out for him. In Washington D.C., Democrats spent the majority of last week ramming through an impeachment trial which ultimately led to yet another Trump acquittal.
Since the failed impeachment trial, one congressional Democrat, along with the NAACP, is suing Trump, alleging that he colluded with Oath Keepers and Proud Boys to storm the U.S. Capitol last month. Apparently, Congress will also be founding a commission to further investigate the riots at Capitol Hill in January.
Democrats and Never Trump Republicans continue urging the GOP to collectively oust and abandon the 45th president. However, a new poll shows that Trump remains deeply popular among Republicans, per Breitbart News.
What to Know About the Trump-GOP Relationship
Per a survey conducted by YouGov/Economist, Trump has an 87% approval rating within the Republican Party. Despite the loud noise from the anti-Trump conservatives, only 12% of the GOP disapproves of the former president.
In another recent poll of possible contenders for the 2024 GOP nomination, Trump was already at the very top of the list. Thus far, the 45th president has not confirmed that he will seek the White House again; however, Trump has vowed to back Republicans seeking to regain the House majority.

On Tuesday, the former president also confirmed that he’ll work to help primary Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. This news broke after Trump unleashed a scathing statement in response to McConnell’s remarks after the Senate impeachment trial.
Unlike Trump, the Senate Minority Leader has a very low favorability rate in the GOP; only 36% of Republicans approve of McConnell, while 51% disapprove of the Senate Minority Leader.
Consistent Messaging from the Republican Party
The GOP has consistently stood by Trump, much to the annoyance of Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans. Multiple polls and surveys have habitually shown that the majority of the Republican Party backs the president and believes he’s benefited the party.
Now that President Trump is once again acquitted in latest unconstitutional effort, maybe Democrats will finally focus on getting to work for the American people.

Since last week’s impeachment trial, leaders in the Republican Party are calling for Democrats to redirect their focus on working for the nation’s people. Democrats, however, are more interested in bringing new lawsuits against Trump and starting commissions to further analyze the January 6 riots.
