Conservatives are making big moves to consolidate the group they lost in the 2020 presidential election, according to a new poll from the American Conservative Union.
The survey by the group shows the GOP holding a 10-point lead over the Democrats, and that more than half of GOP voters (56 percent) are satisfied with the direction of the party, up from 45 percent in November.
The poll was conducted by the American Principles Project, a nonpartisan research group that focuses on conservative priorities and issues, including immigration reform.
The Republican Party has lost control of Congress since 2021, and a number of GOP lawmakers have resigned over Trump-related scandals.
The AP-NORC poll, conducted between May 19 and 22, surveyed 1,000 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.4 percentage points.
Trump won the election by just 2 percentage points over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, with the Associated Press-NORP tracking average of national polls giving the Republican Party a 6.9-point victory.
Trump’s win is likely to boost the Republicans’ standing in 2020 elections, according a study from the Center for Responsive Politics, which projects Trump could lose the 2020 election if the GOP loses the House.
The Senate is expected to remain in Republican hands, and the House is expected a closer race.
The party is also expected to lose seats in the U.S. House and Senate, and lose the White House.
GOP lawmakers and operatives will try to build support for the GOP’s agenda and message during the 2018 midterm elections, when the GOP will need to control the House, Senate and governorships in the 2018 midterms.
“We need to have the message that the American people want to hear, and we have the ability to do that by electing the most conservative Republican in the Senate, the most pro-growth conservative Republican,” said Doug Wead, president of the American Conservatives, in a statement.
“With the Republican majorities in both houses of Congress and in the White Houses, we’re in a position where we can deliver that message.”
While the GOP lost control in Congress, they also retained control of the governorships, legislatures and governors, which allows them to pass legislation and take steps to undo the policies of previous administrations.
The group’s president, Kevin Madden, has advocated for the party to continue its conservative agenda and fight the Democratic agenda.
“The Senate is not a political machine,” Madden said in a press conference at CPAC on Wednesday.
“It’s a political party.”
The survey showed that 55 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing as president, with 41 percent disapproving and 7 percent not sure.
The president’s approval rating has been on a steady decline over the past year.
But he is still viewed favorably by 61 percent of Americans, compared to a 44 percent approval rating last year.
That could prove a problem for the president in the midterm elections.
A CNN/ORC International poll in April showed Trump with a 52-44 approval rating, down from his 61-33 approval rating in January.
And he was viewed unfavorably by 61-31 percent in May.
The American Prospect surveyed more than 5,000 voters, asking whether the president has the “right temperament to be president.”
A majority of respondents (58 percent) said they would not vote for a candidate who did not share their values, and 51 percent said they were undecided about a candidate.
Another 52 percent said Trump has the wrong temperament to lead the country.
More than half (56%) of respondents said the president is making mistakes in foreign policy and 62 percent said the White Street Journal editorial page has not done enough to combat Trump’s racism and xenophobia.
In a statement, American Conservative leader and former House Speaker Eric Cantor said that if the president loses in 2018, it will be a bad year for conservatives.
“President Trump has a long history of failing to represent the views of the majority of the country and his policies are in direct contradiction to the values of conservatism and America,” Cantor said.
“Our conservative base is fed up with a president who is constantly attacking them and attacking the people who work for them.
If the next president is a white supremacist or a sexist or homophobic, we will lose our base and the rest of the GOP.
We need to win again.”
The president will also face some tough decisions on Capitol Hill this fall.
The 2018 midterm election cycle will be one of the most expensive in history.
More conservative members of Congress will be in Washington next year, and they will be working to pass bills that will affect their constituents and the economy.
Some of the bills are expected to be contentious.
The GOP-backed Republican Study Committee introduced a bill that would limit the number of immigrants who can be granted visas and would limit some of the protections that currently exist for the country’s estimated 11 million immigrants.
The legislation is also opposed by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, and is also set to be debated by the House on Thursday.
