But remember folks, Republicans are supposed the be strong on national defense as the “party of national security”:
A new poll finds double-digit support among Republicans for Russia interfering in the U.S. midterm elections to try to help Republicans keep control of Congress in the fall.
A Yahoo Finance–SurveyMonkey poll released Tuesday finds that 11 percent of Republican or GOP-leaning Americans surveyed said it is “appropriate” for Russia to try to help Republicans, while 29 percent said it’s “not appropriate, but wouldn’t be a big deal.”
A majority of Republicans, 55 percent, called it “not appropriate and it would be a big deal” for Russia to try to help Republicans keep control of Congress in November.
The fact that 4 of 10 Republicans in this poll seem to be okay with Russian interference in an election in the United States shows just how far the party that held itself up as the party of national security has fallen as it struggles to maintain its tenuous grip on power.
