Sixty-six percent of Republicans say that they want former president Donald Trump to run for the presidency again, a new Quinnipiac University poll showed.

Eighty-five percent of Republicans said they want future GOP candidates to agree with Trump, as opposed to only 10 percent who answered they want candidates to disagree with him.

“The numbers fly in the face of any predictions that Donald Trump’s political future is in decline. By a substantial majority, Republicans: (1) believe the election was stolen from him, (2) want Trump to run again, and (3), if they can’t vote for Trump, prefer someone who agrees with him,” said Tim Malloy analyst for the Quinnipiac poll.

Trump had hinted earlier that he could run a third presidential campaign. “I’m absolutely enthused. I look forward to doing an announcement at the right time,” Trump said earlier this month. “As you know, it’s very early. But I think people are going to be very, very happy when I make a certain announcement.”
