Mike Pompeo Viewed as a Potential 2024 Presidential Contender

It is just over a month since President Joe Biden took office and talks have already begun about the 2024 presidential and 2022 congressional elections.

Mike Pompeo, the former U.S. Secretary of State under the Trump administration, is being viewed as a potential contender in the next presidential election, according to Axios.

The news site reports that Pompeo is “widely considered a potential 2024 presidential contender,” as he is working to keep his name in the headlines.

Pompeo is expected to deliver a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday. His speech is titled, “How the Bill of Rights Inspires Us at Home and Across the World.”

Additionally, the former secretary of state is helping to fundraise for House Republicans for the 2022 congressional elections, Axios reports.

The National Republican Congressional Committee sent out a fundraising text in February that read, “It’s Mike Pompeo. The Democrats won’t stand up to China. Will you, Friend? 5X match give to restore a USA First agenda.”

What do the polls say?

A poll by the Politico/Morning Consult, conducted Feb. 14-15, found 53% of those polled said they would vote for former President Donald Trump “if the 2024 Republican primary were being held today.”

Former Vice President Mike Pence was the only other contender who received double digits. Twelve percent said they would vote for him.

Meanwhile, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Donald Trump Jr. each received 6%. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) got 4%, as did Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Pompeo received 2%.

Haley is also viewed as a potential contender in the 2024 presidential election.

Alex Conant, a former adviser to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), told The Hill, “It’s a very fine line to walk for a long way between now and the Republican convention in 2024.”

Trump’s grip on the party

Conant, a GOP consultant, also told The Hill:

“Trump might run again, so you have to treat him as a potential competitor. But even if he doesn’t, he wants influence over who the party picks, and loyalty is what he values more than anything else. So it’s hard to build your own identity separate from him while maintaining loyalty and his support.”

A recent Suffolk University/USA TODAY poll showed that 46% of Republican voters would leave the GOP to join a Trump party if he were to create one. Twenty-seven percent said they would not.

Half of those polled also believe the Republican Party should be “more loyal to Trump.” The poll was conducted Feb. 15-19 with 1,000 Trump voters.

Axios reported this week that Trump plans to use his speech at CPAC on Sunday to push the message that he is Republicans’ “presumptive 2024 nominee,” citing top Trump allies. “I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I’m still in charge,” reportedly is the message he plans to push.

Romney recently told reporters, “President Trump and populism are very much in the great majority of our party, and people like myself, who are more traditional conservatives, are a very small minority.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) is urging Trump to run in 2024 and said on Twitter, “The Establishment GOP wants to go back to forever wars, bad trade deals, and caravans crashing across our borders. We’re not going back.”

  1. This is nothing new.

    However, it cannot be stated strongly enough the Pompous Pompeo would be a very dangerous president. He is a deeply religious person trained as a preacher who believes in End-times, a dominionist, who WANTS to end human life on Earth.

    If YOU want to continue living, it would be foolhardy, to say the least, to support a dominionist for president.

      1. Oh, I am sorry that you forgot how to use the Internet. There is lots of confirmation out there, for those who are actually curious enough to learn something new beyond your normal news bubble. Here are just a few. This selection gives you a broader understanding of the dangers of deeply religious people running or affecting OUR OWN government, and Pompous Pompeo was only ONE such person, Mike Pence was another, so make sure that you read the complete articles.

        Obviously, you ain’t gonna find this sort of reporting and details in Epoch Times, but I gave you a variety of unrelated sources not just one (there are lots more where these came from, too), so enjoy, Lying Paul The Emeffer.

        The question NOW will be how does new information affect YOU? I don’t have high hopes, but I am willing to be surprised.

        “Dominion has to do with control. Dominion has to do with rulership. Dominion has to do with authority…and it relates to society. In other words, what the values are in heaven need to be made manifest here on earth. Dominion means being the head and not the tail. Dominion means ruling as kings.” theologian Peter Wagner

        In other words, if you are afraid of Muslim fundamentalists, then be afraid of dominionists, for they are already in da house, buddy.

        1. 😂🤣😂 All listed as liberal or progressive hack sites Chippy the Chump! figutres though coming from you. You are better off Chippy having your mother read you fairy tales as the sites you thrive on fks with your head.

          1. “General Confusion state your sources for you trolling rhetoric.” Lying Paul The Emeffer

            YOU ASKED FOR SOURCES AND I GAVE YOU WHAT YOU WANTED! And then you complain about being given what you asked for? On top of that, you would have complained if you DIDN’T get what you asked for! You are way too confusing, illogical, disingenuous. A liar.

          2. Chippy the Chump you would say the same if I gave far right wing unproven sources. Again Chippy you are full of shit and your left wing unsupported websites prove it so STFU CHUMP.

          3. BTW CHIPPY the CHUMP there are respected verifiable middle of the road sources, search them out CHUMP.

          4. Good, then the NEXT time that YOU demand answers to YOUR questions, go find the answers at the sources that YOU like yourself, the way NORMAL people would. You seem to have better sources than little ol’ me could find, anyway. If you EVER find something incorrect with what I posted, I can now feel VERY assured that you will let EVERYONE know about it. Right, Lying Paul The Emeffer? There is nothing to stop you from doing your own homework.

            It doesn’t matter where a real fact gets released. A fact is a fact no matter what. Your interpretation of a fact is what gets you into trouble, not me.
