GOP 2.0 Is Trending — But Nobody Seems To Be Buying It

Can there be a new, Trump-free Republican Party? It’s clear that there are a group of voters, and of elected officials, who hope so, but it doesn’t look like the majority are buying it. Georgia’s Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan says that GOP 2.0 is the goal, and in his new book, and in interviews, he’s laying out his vision.

Still, it doesn’t seem to have a lot of momentum, and on social media, it’s trending with users who say they’re not interested.

Duncan appeared on Meet the Press recently to speak about election laws and other matters.

He declared that while he believes most Americans see Republicans as the best choice for keeping communities safe and running the economy, divisive lies since the 2020 election may be turning people away.

“We’re the party of solutions,” Duncan said, “and we need to be focused on that.”

However, when the news hit Twitter’s trending topics on Monday, the majority of responses were not affirmative, but divided between voters on the left, who say they’re not interested in any kind of Republican Party, with or without Trump, and voters on the right, saying they’re not interested in moving the party away from the former president.

And here are a few examples of the folks who say they’re sticking with Trump:

Of course, as Rolling Stone reported earlier this year, the problem with getting Republicans to leave the Party of Trump is that almost half polled said they’d do the opposite — leave the Republican Party to join a Trump Party, if he had initiated one.
