NOT BACKING DOWN

Poll: GOP Voters Stand By Trump

A new poll released Sunday morning shows that a majority of Republican voters want the party to stand by Trump in the wake of recently-published sexually explicit comments he made in 2005. Three-quarters of GOP voters believe Trump should still receive support from the party at large, which just 13 percent said the RNC should abandon him, according to the Politico/Morning Consult poll. Additionally, just 48 percent of Republican voters said the recorded remarks, published Friday by The Washington Post, make them view Trump less favorably, and 36 percent said it did not affect how they view him. The comments have caused a crisis situation for the party, with a plethora of elected GOP leaders declaring they can no longer support the Republican nominee. The poll gave Hillary Clinton a four-point lead, 42 to 38, over Trump, with Gary Johnson pulling 8 percent.
