Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Former RNC Chair Has 3 Short Words For Republicans Wanting A Trump Party”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele had a terse message Monday for conservatives who would leave the Republican Party to follow former President Donald Trump.

“You have 46% of the folks saying they will follow Trump,” Steele said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I’m like, OK, there’s the door. Y’all go do your thing, and we’ll just pick up the pieces on this side and keep moving. And that’s the battle.” 

He was discussing a Suffolk University/USA Today poll that found 46% of Republicans surveyed would abandon the GOP and join a Trump party if the former president decided to form one. Just 27% surveyed said they wouldn’t. The remaining number said they were undecided.

The results showed a plurality of Republicans favored Trump despite the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol that was led by his supporters, who sought to overthrow the election and hurt lawmakers who stood in Trump’s way. Trump’s actions in inciting the attack on the Capitol led to his second impeachment by the U.S. House. He was acquitted in the Senate.

Steele headed the RNC from 2009 to 2011. He’s been a loud Trump critic for years and in 2020 joined the anti-Trump conservative group The Lincoln Project in its fight against the 45th president.
