A majority of conservatives believe that the GOP presidential race has narrowed down to a contest between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, according to a poll by FedUp PAC. That is the view of 55%, with 32% expressing disagreement.
Trump’s warnings about Cruz’s birth in Canada have failed to resonate, with only 19% concluding that Cruz is not a “natural born citizen.” Likewise, Cruz has persuaded only 37% that Trump is too closely tied to the GOP establishment, while 51% believe that Trump is still an “outsider” candidate.
There are mixed feelings about keeping the Republican Party united for November, with 52% saying they are very or somewhat concerned that Trump’s attacks on Cruz will be a long-term problem while 44% are not worried.
Conservatives are confident that an outsider such as Cruz or Trump can win the nomination, with 76% taking that position and only 10% disagreeing. However, 84% are concerned that GOP insiders may find a way to nullify the wishes of the grass roots at this summer’s convention.
There is a variety of opinion on which Democrat would be easier to defeat, with 32% saying Sanders, 24% Clinton, and 30% believing it is too soon to know.
45% say that the number of GOP debates has been just right, while 35% believe there have been too many. Only 9% think there should be even more.
FedUp PAC is a grass roots organization that wants constitutional conservatives to take over the GOP because Americans are fed up with the Republican establishment. It is not affiliated with any candidate or committee.
