"We found that there's a larger share of voters who voted for Trump that feel disaffected from the Republican Party than Clinton voters feel disaffected from the Democrats," Piacenza told host Jamal Simmons on "What America's Thinking."

Piacenza was referring to a Morning Consult survey released last month which found that 24 percent of Trump voters said they identified less with the Republican Party, while 21 percent of Clinton voters said they identified less with the Democratic Party. The poll in question had a margin of error of 1 percent. 

"It's a 3-point difference, but it's something. So nearly a quarter of people who voted for Trump no longer feel like they identify with that party. That's a big number," she continued. 

"One of the biggest differences between these disaffected voters and Republicans overall is that the disaffected voters want Republicans to start compromising more," she said. "They want them to start negotiating with Democrats instead of taking these harder stances."
