‘MORE LIKE TRUMP THAN ROM­NEY’

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“Mitt Rom­ney may have pleased Democrats and the me­dia with his re­cent op-ed crit­i­ciz­ing Pres­i­dent Trump, but Repub­li­can vot­ers by a bet­ter than twoto-one mar­gin line up with the pres­i­dent,” says a new Ras­mussen Re­ports poll of 1,000 likely vot­ers.

It re­veals that 63 per­cent of likely Repub­li­can vot­ers think the Repub­li­can Party should be “more like Trump than like Rom­ney.” Twenty-nine per­cent say the GOP should be more like Mr. Rom­ney, who the poll­ster bills as “the party’s failed 2012 pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, now a fresh­man U.S. se­na­tor from Utah.” talk where we know there is no col­lu­sion, where we have been trans­par­ent and co­op­er­a­tive in the process, look, that is a los­ing strat­egy for them,” White House direc­tor of strate­gic com­mu­ni­ca­tions Mercedes Sch­lapp tells Fox News.

“The Amer­i­can peo­ple want the Democrats, the pres­i­dent and the Repub­li­cans to work to­gether to solve prob­lems for our na­tion. That is what the pres­i­dent is fo­cused on ev­ery day. If they want to use im­peach­ment as their po­lit­i­cal ma­neu­ver, they can go and try. But let me tell you some­thing. They will lose. At this point, the pres­i­dent is very fo­cused on the agenda, on en­sur­ing that we can find bi­par­ti­san so­lu­tions on in­fra­struc­ture and trade, and keep this econ­omy boom­ing,” Mrs. Sch­lapp says.
