The polling also reveals some interesting intraparty divides. 

Inside the GOP, Trump-first Republicans are more supportive of candidates who want the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade (51 percent more likely to vote, 24 percent less likely), while party-first Republicans are divided (35 percent more likely to vote, 31 percent less likely).

Republicans are also split on candidates saying Trump won the 2020 presidential election — with Trump-first Republicans overwhelmingly supportive (65 percent more likely to vote, 3 percent less likely) and party-first Republicans much more mixed (24 percent more likely to vote, 28 percent less likely). 

Meanwhile, Democratic voters differ in intensity when it comes to candidates supporting allowing migrants to wait in the U.S. for asylum (Biden primary voters are 52 percent more likely to vote/22 percent less likely, versus Sanders/Warren voters who are 77 percent more likely/7 percent less likely) and being endorsed by Biden (Biden primary voters are 70 percent more likely/2 percent less likely, while Sanders/Warren voters are 51 percent more likely/4 percent less likely).
