Two-thirds of Donald Trump voters want him to run for presidency again in 2024: Survey
Some other names that got the backing of the GOP voters are Mike Pence, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump Jr, Nikki Haley and Marco Rubio
President Donald Trump might have to eventually bow out of the White House since his efforts to seek legal remedy challenging the victory of Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election have not earned dividends but yet it is unlikely that the GOP leader has met his political end. According to a new survey, two-thirds of Republican voters want Trump to run for the White House again in 2024. Trump will be 78 then.
Seven Letter’s 2020 Voter Priorities Survey showed that 66 percent want Trump, a businessman-politician, to run for the White House again in four years. In the case of the Democrats, it was only 26 percent while on the average, it was 45 percent. Besides, 79 percent of Trump’s voters believe the 2020 election was stolen from him by means of election fraud and 62 percent (as on November 19) refuse to accept the election results irrespective of the fact that there has been no evidence of any electoral fraud. Trump has received nearly 74 million votes in this election while Biden got nearly 80 million. Both have won a record number of votes as winning and losing candidates, respectively.
The findings of the polling meant that Trump’s claims that the election has been unethically influenced to see him lose have claimed a good ground.
Besides Trump, Pence also has good support as a 2024 candidate
There are other prominent faces from the Republican camp who also have got considerable backing from the party’s voters to run for the top office in 2024. While Trump leads the pack (60 percent of his own voters and 56 percent of GOP voters want him to contest in 2024), Vice President Mike Pence has been backed by 58 percent of Trump voters and 55 percent of GOP voters. Some other names that have also got the backing of the voters are Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Donald Trump Jr, former US ambassador to UN Nikki Haley, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, among others. Trump’s daughter Ivanka, who is often seen as the next member from the family to make it big, got the backing of only 14 percent of Trump’s supporters and 13 percent of the GOP supporters.
Another interesting finding of the survey was about Trump’s life after the presidency. Sixty-three percent of the GOP supporters felt the outgoing president should stop using Twitter to discuss politics while a same number felt he should contest the election in the Supreme Court. An overwhelming 86 percent of the GOP supporters felt he should call for national unity (78 percent Democrats and 82 percent Independents feltl the same) while 30 percent on an average felt he should refuse to give up power and remain in the White House. Fifty-two percent of the GOP members want Trump to endorse one of his children for presidency in 2024.
The survey also said that 82 percent of Trump’s voters voted for him in this election instead of voting against Biden. On the other hand, 67 percent of the former vice president backed him rather than voting against the incumbent president.
