Does The GOP Belong To Trump?

FiveThirtyEight’s weekly politics chat.

Today, we’re partnering with The Weekly Standard to explore a question that everyone seems to have an opinion on: To what extent does the Republican Party now belong to President Trump?

“Trump actually doesn’t have particularly high “strong” approval numbers. There are a lot of voters with lukewarm feelings toward him. And some sort of loyalty to the Republican Party was important in getting them to get out to vote in 2016.”

“Organized animosity toward Hillary Clinton, more than love of Trump. At least in November 2016.”
