Over the past 2 days there has been a surge of headlines along the lines of “Trump campaign implodes” as a result of the Friday afternoon video published by the WaPo (which had been in NBC’s archives for months, and which was curiously not published previously) exposing Trump’s lewd language toward women. The reaction, at least in Congress, has been swift. According to the most recent “whip list” conducted by The Hill, dozens of elected GOP officials and lawmakers have either revoked their support for Trump (at last check the number was nine) while another 21 called on Trump to drop out of the race. According to a separate count, some 30% of the GOP senate caucus is no longer supporting Trump in some capacity (16 of 54), which includes 19% of men and 83% of women.

But what about the all important rank-and-file GOP voter constituency: has the Trump tape had any impact where it really counts?

The answer, perhaps not surprisingly, is a resounding no. According to a new poll released this morning by Politico/Morning Consult, a vast majority of Republican voters is standing behind Donald Trump after the so-called “campaign imploding” tape scandal.

While nearly three-quarters, or 74%, of all voters polled reacted negatively to the video, almost three-quarters of Republicans, or 74%, said GOP leaders should still back Trump. Only a modest 12% of Republican voters said Trump should end his campaign, pollsters found, and – perhaps more surprisingly – only 13% of female Republicans said he should drop out.

Less surprising was the finding that 70% of Democrats, meanwhile, said Trump should leave the race.
