You might remember the Capitol riot on Jan. 6. Well, Reuters polled 1,000 people and found that 50% of Republicans believe the siege was either a nonviolent protest or the work of left-wing activists trying to make Trump look bad. In fact, 6 in 10 Republicans in the poll believe that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump and that he should run again in 2024. Many believe these numbers are the effect of a widespread disinformation campaign meant to denounce the election results and downplay that day’s events. So, is it possible for the party to achieve unity?
How to unite the Republican Party?
This same Reuters poll revealed that Trump is still the most popular figure in the Republican Party. After the Capitol siege, 147 Republican lawmakers voted against certifying the election results. Also, most of them voted to acquit Trump in his second impeachment trial.
Right-wing members of Congress face one question: How do they reunite the Republican party? The party will not win any future elections if it remains divided. Making sure that most of them are on the same platform will help the party gain more momentum. But the problem is there’s disarray, and that’s preventing the party from moving forward. As long as people in the same party disagree on basic events, hopes for unity are probably out of reach.
