President Donald Trump would be the top chance for a Republican presidential candidacy in 2024 if he were to run again, according to a new survey, after the failure of President-elect Joe Biden.
According to a poll released by Morning Consult and Politico on Tuesday, 53 percent of respondents would choose Trump as a GOP candidate in the next election. Vice President Mike Pence was a distant second election with 12 percent support, while President’s son Donald Trump Jr. was the third favorite at 8 percent.
The other names that appeared in the survey were even further away from the package. Senate Mitt Romney, the GOP’s 2012 candidate, was tied up with 4 percent by both Senator Ted Cruz and former UN ambassador Nikki Haley. Senator Marco Rubio registered 2 percent, while South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem joined Sens. To Josh Hawley, Tom Cotton, Rick Scott and Tim Scott, each with 1 percent.
Although the majority preferred Trump as the Republican presidential candidate in 2024, the same poll found that a larger majority rejected his current job performance. While 43 percent said they “slightly” or “definitely” approved Trump’s presidency, 56 percent somewhat or strongly rejected it, with the most common response being a strong rejection, 45 percent.
The poll was conducted among registered voters in 1991 between 21 and 23 November. The margin of error is 2 percent.
The official departure between the outgoing Trump administration and the incoming Biden administration began on Tuesday, but Trump refused to acknowledge the clear outcome of the election, instead claiming that the unproven allegations of voter fraud meant the election was “stolen.” from him.
As legal challenges and other attempts to overthrow Biden’s victory continue to fail, speculation has swirled that the president could announce his candidacy for 2024 before the end of the year, and some suggest that Trump may continue to lead the Republican Party by raising awareness and retaining. meetings under the Biden Presidency.
“It would be a foolish affair to state that he will run for presidential election later this year,” said Sam Nunberg, Trump’s campaign advisor in 2016. The Washington Post. “But on the other hand, to maintain your strength over the party and fight the Republican heritage hierarchy so that they can’t erase it from history, it’s important that you continue to be at the forefront of this process.”
“It’s very competitive,” Nunberg added. “It’s very cool to be elected in 2016 – it’s historic – but there will be a return of political returns in 2024.”
