For the past six years. In early 2020, the same voters (38%) voted more for Republican leader Donald Trump (54%) than the party, and vice versa.
This change in behavior did not surprise Republican political strategist Keith Newton, who explains it in part because of the bitterness that the populist has consistently expressed since his defeat in November 2020.
