Top GOP pollster: To win, ‘we need Trump to go away’

Looking ahead to Nov 2022, it seems to me as long as Trump is the head or the face of the GOP, the fragile coalition of the majority of independents with the Democratic Party bodes well for retention of congress. As long as the Republican Party is devoid of fresh, new ideals, new solution to our problems, a coherent vision of the future. Just being Trump, Trump, Trump isn't about to cut it.

But this coalition is still fragile. Independents don't like either major party. I suppose if they did, they wouldn't be independents or swing voters. Usually independents gravitate to the party out of power for the midterms. So far that hasn't happened. Many reasons for that, but the big one, the main one is Trump.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
