Majority of Republicans Would Toss Their Support Behind Trump if He Ran in 2024, Poll Shows

It has been three weeks since Election Day and over two weeks since all major news outlets projected Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election.

However, President Donald Trump has refused to concede the election and continued to push unsubstantiated widespread voter fraud claims.

Now, a new survey published on Tuesday by Morning Consult is revealing that the majority of Republican voters polled would toss their support behind Donald Trump if he were to run again in 2024.

If the 2024 Republican presidential primary were held today, 54% of Republicans said that they would vote for Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, 12% of voters said they would support Vice President Mike Pence, while 8% showed support for the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. Four percent of respondents said they would support Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) or former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

Additionally, the poll found that 68% of Republican voters believe Donald Trump is more in touch with the Republican Party’s “rank and file.” This compares to 20% who said the same of congressional Republicans.

The survey, conducted Nov. 21-23, revealed that 72% of Republican voters also believe Republicans in Congress listen to Donald Trump and want to work with him. Twenty-five percent said congressional Republicans fear Donald Trump, and 69% said Republicans in Congress respect Donald Trump.

  1. Directly after an election? More than half of those people can’t even admit he lost 2020.

    I would argue that if Nikki Haley ran for president that she would get a lot more than 4% vote. I had little doubt she will be the first female president – assuming she didn’t lose all credibility with her overt support for Trump the last few years.

    Because she ain’t going to get there without support of moderates from both Republicans AND democrats. That used to be a reliable vote for her until Trump.
