A new poll is out showing that only a third of Republicans are happy with Romney’s vote to impeach Trump, while the other two thirds are not:
DC EXAMINER – The new Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics poll, which was released on Tuesday, revealed that 31% of the Republicans surveyed had a positive reaction to the vote, whereas 60% of them had a negative response. Comparatively, 83% of Democrats supported the former GOP presidential campaign’s vote, and 13% had a negative reaction.
In total, 49% of the 500 people, who were surveyed from Feb. 7-10, viewed Romney’s vote as positive — with 40% viewing it negatively.
Further, 37% of Utahans are less likely to vote for Romney following the vote to remove Trump from office, while 36% percent said they’re more likely to vote for him. 22% said it had no impact.
I would most certainly be less likely to vote for Romney if he were running in my state. It was a shameful vote and it’s really unfortunate that he only just became Utah’s senator.
So overall, the state seems happy enough with Romney. But Republicans are clearly not, and that could mean trouble when he’s up for a primary in a few years if people haven’t forgotten about it.
