Nearly 80 percent of Republicans want Trump to run again in 2024: Poll
The new poll comes as Trump continues to hint at a potential presidential bid.
A new poll out Tuesday suggests that almost 80% of Republicans support the idea of former President Donald Trump running for re-election again in 2024.
According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, 78% of Republicans surveyed said they want Trump to attempt a third run for the White House during the 2024 presidential cycle, while only 16% of Republicans would like to see another candidate as the nominee.
In sharp contrast, 94% of Democrats and 58% of independent voters say they want the former president to sit out the next election cycle.
According to The Hill, this recent survey further highlights the strong control Trump has over the Republican party, following the 2020 presidential election.
The new poll comes as Trump continues to hint at a potential presidential bid, as he travels across the country holding massive rallies.
Trump continues to remain the overall GOP favorite as other potential candidates consider mounting a presidential run. Some of these possible contenders include Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, as well as former Vice President Mike Pence.
