What does the GOP want?
As the 2016 election campaign ramps up, it’s clear that Donald Trump has one overriding goal in mind: To turn the party in his favor, according to an extensive analysis of voter preferences.
The Republican Party is on track to win the White House, and Trump’s nomination would be a major victory for his party.
In fact, Trump would likely be the first sitting president to be elected with a majority of the Electoral College votes.
But Trump also wants to see Republicans win the House and Senate, which are currently held by Democrats.
“The GOP is on the cusp of winning control of the House of Representatives and Senate,” wrote Republican strategist Ed Rollins.
“It’s the last thing we want to see.”
Here are five things we know about how the race is shaping up.1.
Trump has a majority in the Electoral Colleges.
The Republican Party has a 50-50 split in the House, with Trump leading by a whopping 10 points.
He has a 60-40 lead in the Senate, where Republicans have a 52-46 majority.
That’s more than twice the 50-49 majority Trump would need to win in the popular vote, according the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.
It’s also a majority that would likely prevent Democrats from taking control of both chambers.
And if they win both chambers, Democrats would be poised to win control of Congress and the presidency in 2022.2.
The House of Representative will be an open seat.
The 2018 midterm elections will be held in 2022, meaning the 2018 midterm election will be one that is a closed-door affair.
In order to hold its election, the House has to elect at least one member.
As of Tuesday morning, Trump had already secured 270 Electoral College vote, but that could change in the future.
According to the Cook Political Reports, Democrats currently hold the majority of seats in both houses.
That means that Democrats would need a net gain of 30 seats to take the House outright.3.
Trump’s victory is tied to a huge surge in support for him in swing states.
The most recent FiveThirtyEight forecast had Trump leading in swing-state polling by 3.8 points, a significant boost from the 6.3 points he lost in swing districts in 2020.
A recent Rasmussen Reports poll found that 54 percent of likely voters nationwide said they would vote for Trump in the next election.
The same poll showed that 60 percent of Republicans who responded said they were more likely to vote for him than any other candidate in the race.4.
The GOP is also on track for a big boost in the number of swing districts that would elect a Republican president.
Trump currently leads in Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, but he’s been leading in states like Georgia, Ohio, Michigan and Florida by double digits.
Republicans currently hold an advantage of 52 House seats in the 435-member House.
If the party holds a majority, they would be able to win all three chambers of Congress, and a Trump presidency would be nearly certain to result in Republicans winning control over the White Senate and House.5.
Trump is also a huge liability for Democrats in states that have already swung blue.
In Florida, where Democrats have held a big advantage since Trump’s win, Trump’s support has dropped from 60 percent in November to just 34 percent in January.
Trump would have to win a big chunk of the state’s Electoral College in order to win, but Democrats have already held their own in other states where Trump has struggled to win.
A poll from ABC News in early January showed that Trump would only win by 10 points in the Sunshine State.
He would need at least 40 percent of the vote to win there.
Trump’s popularity is also hurting his prospects for re-election.
A new poll from the Public Policy Polling found that Trump’s approval rating has dropped to 32 percent in February from 50 percent a month earlier.
He was even worse in April, with his approval rating at 30 percent.
Democrats have also seen a dip in their support among the Millennial generation, who are less likely to be registered voters.
A November survey from Quinnipiac University found that millennials, who represent an aging demographic, are less than 20 percent of registered voters, while the national average is over 40 percent.
The poll found a large gap between Trump’s and Clinton’s support among millennials, with only 17 percent of millennials supporting the Democratic nominee.6.
Trump hasn’t won in Florida since 1996.
The last time a sitting president was elected with less than a majority was Bill Clinton in 1996.
This time around, the Republican nominee has an 80-year history in the state.
And unlike 1996, when he lost Florida to George W. Bush, Trump will likely win it again.
Trump won Florida in 2016 by a slim margin, and in 2020 he won by an even narrower margin.
It would be almost unprecedented for a sitting GOP president to win by less than 50 percent in a state that has swung red
