A story published earlier this week at Just The News said the website combined with Scott Rasmussen to conduct a poll and found that if a hypothetical third party — like the Patriot Party — were led by President Donald J. Trump, it would receive support from 23 percent of the electorate.

The Republican Party would tumble to third with 17 percent.

Many conservative Republicans have expressed disgust with the GOP establishment turning its back on the former President.

Democrats had 46 percent support in the poll and would obviously benefit from a potential third party.

And, examining the “very conservative” voters, the Trump Patriot Party idea beats the GOP 55 percent to 24 percent.

For what it is worth, the Donald J. Trump For President organization has said it does not believe a third party is needed and will still function under the Republican umbrella.
