Despite merciless attacks from the radical left and the mainstream media, President Trump’s political opponents can’t seem to keep him down.
A new Morning Consult and Politico poll conducted this week following news that the FBI had raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida revealed that a staggering 71 percent of GOP voters want Trump to run for president in 2024. Interactive Polls referred to this number as “record-high.”
Interestingly, the same report revealed that Trump’s popularity has increased with potential voters, with 58 percent of GOP respondents saying they would vote for Trump if the presidential Republican primary were held today.
These new numbers reveal that regardless of the political attacks on the 45th president, GOP voters are still closely aligned with supporting Trump. Last week’s anticipated CPAC straw poll netted Trump an impressive 69 percent of the support in a hypothetical 2024 presidential primary election, up ten points from just six months ago in February’s straw poll, where he polled at 59.1 percent.
The CPAC straw poll also found that Trump had an impressive 99 percent job approval rating among respondents.
Furthermore, Trump has a stellar endorsement record this midterm season, harnessing the full power of his political might to play kingmaker in critical gubernatorial, Senate, and House races across America. “167 and 6 on endorsements this cycle,” Trump stated in a Friday post shared to Truth Social. “This includes many who didn’t have a chance of getting election. Most of the ‘Impeachers’ are gone or going.”
Although Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., has been viewed as a viable contender for the 2024 presidential primary race, Morning Consult and Politico’s new poll shows that Trump continues to outpace DeSantis among GOP voters as a potential candidate, with DeSantis’s support stalling at 16 percent.
Both Trump and DeSantis are wildly popular among Republicans and conservative-learning Independents, but the numbers are clear: GOP voters want Trump in 2024, and that support only continues to increase as election year looms closer and the media’s attacks intensify.
