One of President Donald Trump’s cornerstone promises in the 2016 election was his pledge to fight for the American people and to “drain the swamp” of establishment politicians who seem to all have shady political agendas.
The president has made tremendous progress on that promise during his first four years in the White House and according to Breitbart, a recent poll indicated that a majority of Americans want the president to “continue to fight to change Washington.”
The McLaughlin & Associates survey was revealed on Monday and asked respondents a number of questions, including whether or not they’d like to see Trump continue to tackle the swamp, which garnered 52 percent of support.

Out of the 1,000 people who were surveyed, 58 percent of Americans prefer “free-market capitalism,” with only 16 percent saying they favor “big government socialism.” Another question asked respondents if they preferred smaller government with fewer services compared to big government with many services, 48 percent of Americans chose the smaller government option compared to 36 percent favoring bigger government.
In other words, it’s clear that a majority of Americans not only want Trump to continue fighting back against the Washington D.C. establishment, but they also prefer his conservative, smaller government policy style.
That’s likely part of the reason why, according to Politico, another recent poll strongly indicated that Trump is already the frontrunner for the 2024 Republican primary, besting other high-profile Republicans like Vice President Mike Pence and even his own son, Donald Trump Jr.
In that POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, Trump garnered 52 percent of support from Republican voters to lead the charge in 2024. The rest of the field split the remainder, with the closest person to Trump being Pence, who only managed to garner 12 percent of support.
Whether or not Trump and his lawyers manage to pull off a miracle and retain a second term in the White House, it’s clear that Trump is still heavily favored as the face of the Republican party and will be for years to come.
