Trump Would Easily Win If 2024 Republican Primary Was Held Today
President Donald Trump‘s supporters would remain loyal should he run again in 2024, a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll released Tuesday showed.
The poll, which surveyed registered voters, found Trump receiving the backing of 53% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in a hypothetical 2024 Republican primary.
Among the other proposed candidates were Vice President Mike Pence, Donald Trump Jr., Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mitt Romney (R-Utah), and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. However, Trump was the clear frontrunner.
Pence came in second with 12%, while Trump Jr. received 8%. The other candidates each collected less than 5%.
The conversation surrounding a potential Trump 2024 bid indicates a gradual acceptance of his 2020 election loss. To that end, the POLITICO/Morning Consult poll found that most registered voters approve of how President-elect has handled the transition of power so far.
Only 22% said they strongly disapprove of Biden’s handling of the transition, while 43% said they approved. Nineteen percent somewhat approved, 6% somewhat disapproved and 10% had no opinion.
The poll surveyed 1,990 registered voters from Nov. 21-23 and has a margin of error of +/-2%.
