A large majority of likely Republican voters want the party to be more like President Donald Trump than the average GOP member of Congress, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll.

Just 24% of likely GOP voters see the average congressional Republican as a better model for the party than Trump, while 72% say the GOP should be more like the outgoing president.

Still, according to the poll, a slight majority (52%) would like a new Republican on the 2024 presidential ticket, while 63% among Democrats and unaffiliated likely voters want a fresh face.

That data point is significant because in a similar Rasmussen survey six years ago, 60% of likely GOP voters wanted a new face to be their presidential nominee, leading to the rise of Trump.

Just 33% of this recent poll's likely GOP voters would like a familiar face to lead the party, while 15% remain unsure.

Among all likely voters:

  • 40% say the GOP should be like Trump.
  • 45% say the GOP should be like the average congressional Republican.
  • 14% were undecided.

Among Democrat likely voters, 62% say the GOP should be like the average congressional Republican over Trump.

Rasmussen's poll was conducted Dec. 21-22 among 1,000 likely voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
