Back in late March — by which point the Republican Primaries had narrowed to Donald Trump, Senator Ted Cruz, and Governor John Kasich — we had a poll asking members where they stood on the candidates and whether they could support the then-frontrunner. The results: at that point, Ted Cruz was the preferred candidate of 91 percent of members who took the poll, and 59 percent of members said they could not vote for Trump if he were the nominee.
Given how circumstances have changed, we thought it was time for a follow-up poll that gauged members’ support for the presumptive nominee, and asked those on both sides of the matter — as well as those who are leaning one way or the other — to better describe their reasoning. As before, this poll makes no pretense of scientific accuracy, but is intended to shed some light on where members of The Smartest Conversation on the Right™ find themselves.
This poll will expire Wednesday evening and the results will be posted to the Main Feed. If you would like to participate, now’s a great time to become a member.
