64% of Republicans would leave GOP for new third party founded by Trump

Most Republicans would quit the GOP and join a hypothetical third party started by former President Donald Trump, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.

According to the survey, 64% of registered Republicans said they would join a new political party if Trump founded one. No less than 32% said they would be "very likely" to join a Trump party.

Just 36% of Republicans opposed leaving the GOP for a party founded by Trump.

But it's not just Republicans who could be swayed to a third-party movement. The survey found 28% of self-identified independents and 15% of Democrats said they would be likely to join a Trump party.
