    Surge Summary: There is already talk of a new political party forming – under the leadership of one Donald Trump. This would divide the conservative movement and thus be disastrous for the broader cause. Thankfully, President Trump does not endorse the idea.

    I know there is a lot of frustration with the GOP.  I share it.

    And I know there is a lot of sentiment for Donald Trump to start a new party.  There was a lot of buzz yesterday about a new poll that showed the GOP coming in third place behind a Trump-backed “Patriot Party.”

    But the main point from the poll is this:  With the conservative vote divided, the Democrat Party easily dominates.

    If the country is divided 50/50 and you split the conservative vote, we lose.  And that does nothing to advance the conservative cause.

    Thankfully, President Trump appreciates that reality, and he publicly disavowed the newly formed Patriot Party.  According to a senior adviser, Trump’s goal “is to win back the House and Senate for Republicans in 2022.”
