survey says

One-third of Republicans want a new president in 2020

About one-third of Republican voters want someone who is not Donald Trump to be elected president in 2020, a new survey from the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) finds. The poll results, published Tuesday, show 31 percent of GOP voters would like a different Republican nominee in the next presidential election, while 63 percent would like to keep President Trump on their party's ticket.

PRRI also asked voters about specific policy topics, partisanship, and the midterm election in 2018. The poll found voters sharply divided on the issues, and leaning Democratic in the upcoming race. One point on which Republicans and Democrats can agree, however, is in their views of each other. Within each party, a mere 5 percent thought the other party is "moving the country in the right direction," while about 4 in 10 say the other party is "misguided but not necessarily dangerous" and more than 5 in 10 say their political opponents' "policies are so misguided they pose a threat to the country."
