How else can do you explain this? Republican members of Congress are at a disadvantage in running for re-election if they are not given the facts about Trump's unpopularity. The NRCC and their hiding of their negative internal polling is like Jim Jones who encouraged his followers to drink the Kool-Aid while while withholding the truth as to what's in it.
That Republicans debase themselves with their fealty for the twice impeached, two-time popular vote loser, one-term compulsive liar is unprecedented and simply bizarre.
The Washington Post reported the following:
Liz Cheneyís months-long effort to turn Republicans from Trump threatens her reelection and ambitions. She says itís only beginning.
Rep. Liz Cheney had been arguing for months that Republicans had to face the truth about former president Donald Trump ó that he had lied about the 2020 election result and bore responsibility for the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol ó when the Wyoming Republican sat down at a party retreat in April to listen to a polling briefing.
The refusal to accept reality, she realized, went much deeper.
When staff from the National Republican Congressional Committee rose to explain the partyís latest polling in core battleground districts, they left out a key finding about Trumpís weakness, declining to divulge the information even when directly questioned about Trumpís support by a member of Congress, according to two people familiar with what transpired.
Trumpís unfavorable ratings were 15 points higher than his favorable ones in the core districts, according to the full polling results, which were later obtained by The Washington Post. Nearly twice as many voters had a strongly unfavorable view of the former president as had a strongly favorable one.
Cheney was alarmed, she later told others, in part because Republican campaign officials had also left out bad Trump polling news at a March retreat for ranking committee chairs. Both instances, she concluded, demonstrated that party leadership was willing to hide information from their own members to avoid the truth about Trump and the possible damage he could do to Republican House members, even though the NRCC denied any such agenda.
