A majority of Republicans believe their party should be more like President Donald Trump instead of following the lead of senators who recently criticized the president, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released on Monday.

The poll questions were asked in the wake of Sens. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. and Bob Corker, R-Tenn., presidential critiques.

In the poll of likely Republican voters:

  • 57 percent said the Republican Party should be more like Trump.
  • 33 percent feel the party should be more like Senate Republicans.
  • More Republicans believe the president should keep his party on his side.
  • 48 percent think Trump should keep other elected Republicans on his side instead of pursuing his own goals.
  • 42 percent say it's more important for the president to go his own way.
  • Almost half of Republicans say that it is important to them that some Republican senators offer criticism of the president, while 49 percent say criticism of the president is important — with 32 percent of those saying it is "very important."
  • 47 percent say that the senators' criticism is not important, with 19 percent of that number saying it is "not at all important."

The poll was conducted among 1,000 likely voters on Oct. 26 and Oct. 29, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

In a Rasmussen poll released in August, half of Republicans said they believe the president criticizing his own party's senators is a good thing for the country.
