Donald Trump has spent the entirety of the January 6th hearings in a rage. He’s now mad at Kevin McCarthy for not working harder to place GOP loyalists on the panel.
And since the hearings have begun, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been moving up in the polls. According to Frank Luntz, the committee’s efforts are certainly having an impact on Trump.
The GOP pollster made the comments during a Thursday appearance on CNN. “There’s now polling out that shows that Donald Trump is actually paying a price for what these hearings are showing,” he said. “So it’s having an impact even among Republicans.”
Discussing DeSantis, Luntz later remarked, “The governor is proving that his approach — and what he’s trying to accomplish and what he has accomplished in Florida — is more significant and Republicans are now saying it’s time to move on. Make no mistake, Donald Trump is the most popular political figure within the Republican Party, but there is now a specific challenger, and Trump can yell and scream and send out his emails… but they’re having less and less of an impact with every single month.”
