Romney Predicts If Trump Runs in 2024 He ‘Will Win the Nomination’

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) believes if former President Donald Trump were to run in the 2024 presidential election, he would win the Republican Party’s nomination.

In an interview with the New York Times’ DealBook, Romney said Trump “has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party.”

“I don’t know if he’s planning to run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he will win the nomination,” Romney added.

The Republican senator, who has been a vocal critic of Trump, noted “a lot can happen between now and 2024” and said he is “not great at predicting.”

Noting polls of potential contenders for the 2024 presidential election, Romney said:

“If you put President Trump in there among Republicans, he wins in a landslide.”

Romney was questioned on if he would campaign against Trump if the former president ran again, to which he said, “I would not be voting for President Trump again. I haven’t voted for him in the past.”

The Utah senator said he would support a candidate who represents “the tiny wing of the party that I represent.”

Axios reported this week that Trump will use his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday in Orlando, Florida, to push 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,” Trump’s message will be, according to Axios, which cites a longtime adviser to Trump.

A source told Reuters that Trump plans to talk about “the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement. Also, look for the 45th President to take on President (Joe) Biden’s disastrous amnesty and border policies.”

According to a recent poll by Suffolk University/USA TODAY, nearly half of Republican voters said they would ditch the GOP to join a Trump party and 27% of those polled said they would not.

Responses

  1. A few caveats need to be applied, here, regarding IF President Who? runs.

    Will he be too busy in court? Staying out of jail would really help his chances in being nominated.

    At being 78 years old in 2024, will he PREFER to just run out his clock and go golfing into the sunset?

    Does he PREFER to start a new digital media company? With an extensive graveyard filled with digital media companies, that would be a pretty big distraction from running.

    There is no guarantee that a large chunk of American voters finally won’t wake up and realize what harm that they have caused and then won’t nominate President Who? for a second term. While that is unlikely, the chances still aren’t zero.

    And then, of course, even after surmounting ALL of that, what are the chances of a loser doing better third time around? Very few presidents ever won again after losing the presidency. I think that record stands at two.

    We will find out at CPAC, the American Fascist version of ComiCon, this week what he says that he wants to do.
