Most Republicans want Trump to 'break some rules to set things right'

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at a campaign rally in Phoenix Arizona U.S

However, just 37% of registered voters surveyed say they'll support a Republicans congressional candidate in the midterm elections next year.

Hannity went on to say that the he believes the Republican Party left him. Many good men and women.

Republicans who said they supported Trump in 2016 but are now leaning away from him are more likely to be nonwhite than any of the other voting groups.

According to NBC, the October 18-30 poll of 2,019 respondents found that Trump remains extremely unpopular with a favorability rating of 41 percent, while an nearly equal number of registered voters, 40 percent, believe Trump should be impeached. But Trump retains significant support among rank-and-file Republicans and white evangelical Protestants. That's bad news for the president who, even with a Republican majority, has faced legislative roadblocks on Capitol Hill. Notably, nearly one-third of white evangelical Protestants (30 percent) say there is almost nothing Trump could do to lose their approval.

Hannity added that people who oppose President Donald Trump "want to destroy this president, they want to stop this agenda".

To a large degree, Trump surely bears responsibility - his juvenile outbursts on Twitter, aggressive pandering to white nationalism, and hard-right social policy do little to attract mainstream voters to the Republican Party. The survey finds 86% of Republicans say "yes" while 68% of Democrats say "no". Democrats hold similarly negative attitudes toward Republicans: Most Democrats (54 percent) feel GOP policies pose a threat to the country, while 38 percent believe they are simply misguided. On the barrage of sexual misconduct allegations, PRRI found 70% of Americans and 78% of women believe the incidents are part of a broader pattern of how women are generally treated.
