As the days tick by and President Donald Trump’s legal team faces roadblock after roadblock in the quest to overturn the results of the 2020 election, it’s looking more and more like the 45th president could be on his way out of the White House come January.
According to the Daily Wire, however, that doesn’t mean his tens of millions of supporters have given up on the prospect of seeing him in the White House once again. A new Morning Consult/Politico poll released on Tuesday clearly indicated that Republican voters would support Trump in a 2024 run, should it come down to that.
The poll showed that Republican voters and voters that lean Republican would back the current president in a primary race if it were held today — to the tune of 54 percent, which makes Trump’s hypothetical nomination all but a given.
The president’s score left other Republicans in the dust, including Vice President Mike Pence, who only received 12 percent of support. Donald Trump Jr., who has been rumored to take an interest in politics in the future, only managed to gather 8 percent of support.
There were several other high-profile Republicans listed for respondents to back, including Sens. Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Josh Hawley. Unfortunately for them, it’s not quite yet their turn, as they all scored under five percent of support.
In other words, Trump-supporting Republicans very much want this president to come back for another term in the White House if former Vice President Joe Biden officially takes the office this time around.
According to Market Watch, another recent poll from Seven Letter Insight told a similar story, with a staggering 66 percent of Republicans in favor of Trump running to become the 47th president in 2024.
Ratification to the Twenty-Second Amendment in 1951 allows presidents to hold only two terms in office, but it’s not specified that they have to be consecutive terms. Should Trump run again in 2024 and win, he would join former President Grover Cleveland as only the second president to hold two terms, non-consecutively.
