Liz Copeland, a GOP strategist and the founder of Urban Conservative, believes Trump’s behavior in Paris, the way he responded to Republicans in Congress who lost during the midterm elections, and his decision to move forward with replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions can explain why some voters on the right are shifting their stance. “I’m not quite sure that he has the full confidence of the entire Republican party,” she said.
Chuck Rocha, the president and founder of Solidarity Strategies, told Hill TV that it’s currently “volatile on both sides” following the midterms. “There’s something out there where people are frustrated with both parties,” he said.
But despite the frustration from the left and the right, Rocha believes there’s a core group of Republicans who will stand by Trump no matter what, but they don’t represent the other segment of the party. Rocha described those who don’t align with the president as “suburban, well-educated, (and) want their taxes to be lowered.”
