January 6 Survey ‘Moving the Needle’; GOP now views Trump as ‘damaged’

Trump’s former White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said on “CNN Tonight” on Wednesday that the Jan. 6 House Select Committee hearings “move the needle” with Republicans in Washington, D.C. who now think Donald Trump would be a “damaged” 2024 presidential candidate.

Anchor Kasie Hunt said: ‘You were a politician for a long time. What’s your assessment of whether Republicans are ready to move, especially in some of those swing states of Georgia and maybe Wisconsin, where those hearings might get a little more coverage?

Mulvaney said: ‘It’s not conclusive, but I think it was in Gallup that someone put out a poll in the last 12 hours that asked people to rate the issues most important to them , and that did not prompt them to give an answer. . No one said January 6. No one said the January 6 commissions. Things like the economy always motivate ordinary Americans and what interests them.

He added: “Inside Washington, inside the political world, things are moving. What you see I think is that people especially in my party see Donald Trump as damaged and something that could weigh on the party mid-term and into 2024 which is why I think you start to hear the rumbles of Mike Pence running in 2024 against Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley. These are conversations that I don’t think you would have had six or eight weeks ago before the start of the committee hearings.
