WATCH: Karl Rove Mocks Trump’s Lack of CPAC Popularity

Donald Trump certainly enjoys a high level of popularity within the Republican party. This week’s CPAC conference has very little to do with Conservative politics and everything to do with the cult of Trump.

But some straw polls from the event have shown that, perhaps, Trump isn’t as popular as he thinks he is. During a Sunday appearance on Fox News, Karl Rove mocked Trump and his future in the GOP.

Host John Roberts began, “95% said they wanted the party to continue his policies. 70% of people said that they wanted to see him run again but 55% said that they would vote for him. I thought that number might have been higher.”

The former Bush strategist weighed in, “Bingo. Remember, this was a group that came to this meeting for largely one reason: President Trump was going to be there. This is the truest Trump believers. And for him to only get 55% says — as I said in my column — he is losing strength because he’s not introducing something new. He’s losing strength whether he recognizes it.”

Rove continued, “I’d take that as a cautionary not. He needs to refresh his act. He needs to change and he needs to offer a vision for the future.”
