Whether establishment Republicans like it or not, the overwhelming majority of Republican voters believe President Donald J. Trump should remain the role model for the GOP’s future.

But, according to Rasmussen Reports, most believe the GOP should find a new face to be its next presidential candidate.

The new survey finds 72 percent of likely Republican voters think the GOP should be more like Trump than the average GOP member of Congress.

Twenty-four percent believe the average Republican in Congress would be a better model.

A slim majority of Republican voters (52 percent) believe the party should find a “fresh face” to run for President in 2024. Thirty-three percent disagree and say the party should promote a candidate who has already run and 15 percent are not sure.

Among all likely voters, however, 40 percent think the GOP should be more like Trump while 45 percent say it should be more like the average GOP member of Congress.
