In response to the data showing much stronger support for Trump than for the Republican party among Trump voters, AP makes an eminently reasonable assertion:

But the trend holds among self-described Republicans as well, albeit not so starkly:
Even among Republicans, Trump trumps the Republican party, and Trump’s tent is larger than the GOP’s is. Is it conceivable that art of the deal man puts McConnell’s troops over the top in Georgia without extracting anything in return?
