Poll: Romney Speech Did Little to Hurt Trump
Last week, Mitt Romney delivered a speech, slamming Donald Trump and trying to win back the GOP for any candidate that wasn’t Trump.
However, the latest poll by Morning Consult has revealed that his speech did very little to hurt Trump’s numbers in the polls.
The Hill reports:
Among Trump supporters, 56 percent said they are more likely to vote for Trump after he was denounced by Romney, while 5 percent said they are less likely to vote for Trump. Thirty-six percent said their opinions were not changed.
And among those who voted for Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, his speech was less helpful in curbing support for Trump: 30 percent were more likely to vote for Trump, while 20 percent were less likely.
Romney ripped Trump as a “fraud” and “phony” during his speech lambasting the real estate tycoon’s business record and vision for the country, while Trump criticized Romney as a failed candidate.
Trump is hoping to fend of three rivals — Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich — as a handful of states hold voting on Tuesday.
