In vain effort, Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney is urging GOP to move on from Donald Trump as the former president surges in the polls.
“I hope the jury of the American people reaches the same conclusion about Donald Trump,” Romney said.
“He just is not suited to be president of the United States and to be the person who we hold up to our children and the world as the leader of the free world,” he added.
“At some point when the people who work with you, your cabinet secretaries, and juries conclude that you’ve done something severely wrong, it’s time for us to recognize that the great majority of those who’ve worked with him is right and he’s wrong,” he continued.
However, Romney admitted that Trump will likely become the party’s nominee in 2024 as 45th president surges in the polls.
The RINO Republican told reporters, “I think President Trump is by far the most likely to become our nominee. If there’s an alternative to that, it would be only realistic if it narrows down to a two-person race at some point.”
“There’s always a personal interest on the part of the campaign — particularly the campaign staff, and consultants, as well as the candidate — to stay in. And to say, ‘Hey, look, I came in second. So I’m the person that really ought to get the nomination four years from now,'” Romney noted further.
“And so it really is up to the donors and other influential people that know the candidate, his family or her family, to say, ‘Hey, time to move on.'”
Romney added he would work against Trump in the nomination process: “I won’t be supporting President Trump.”
Despite Romney’s remarks, recent polls found Trump is ahead of a potential rematch against President Joe Biden.
The latest Harvard-Harris poll notes a surge in support for Trump, suggesting a potential path to victory.
The polls also indicate Trump is maintaining a formidable presence despite legal challenges.
According to the poll, Trump is also enjoying a remarkable surge in popularity.
The former president garnered 47 percent approval from respondents, surpassing Sleepy Joe’s approval rating of 40 percent.
As The Conservative Brief noted:
The survey also assessed hypothetical contests involving Trump and other prominent Democrats. The results, for instance, showed Trump with 50 percent support compared to Vice President Kamala Harris, who trailed behind at 39 percent.
As for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has not yet declared his candidacy but is expected to as early as this week, the results showed him in a dead heat with Biden at 42 percent apiece, which was the same outcome as a potential DeSantis-Harris matchup.
Meanwhile, according to the survey, less than 33 percent of respondents believe that the country is moving in the right direction, which clearly indicates the lack of confidence in Biden’s policies. Additionally, an alarming 66 percent of the participants expressed concern about the direction of the U.S. economy, an indication they believe it is heading in the wrong direction — a clear reflection of a perception that the current administration is unable to manage the country’s financial well-being.
Half of respondents reported that their finances had worsened during Biden’s presidency.
The poll indicates just 21 percent of respondents expressed confidence in avoiding a potential recession.
Biden’s approval ratings have remained stagnant, hovering above 40 percent.
