A majority of Republicans want former President Donald Trump to run once again for the White House, per a new Quinnipiac poll that rolled out on Wednesday.
According to the said poll, 66% of Republicans who responded to the survey want Trump to run for the Oval Office again in 2024. Conversely, only 25% of them say they don’t want him to go for the presidency a second time.
Tim Malloy, a polling analyst from Quinnipiac University, said that the numbers can readily disprove any theory that people don’t want Trump to run again.
Malloy added that a majority of the respondents believe three things. First, they believe the 2020 election was stolen from Trump. Second, they want Trump to run in 2024. Lastly, if the former president decides to not run for office in 2024, the respondents would want to vote for people who agree with him.
Apart from this, 85% of Republican respondents have stated that they prefer election candidates who agree with Trump. Meanwhile, only 18% would consider candidates who mostly disagree with him.
The results of this new poll show how much the former president is still a leader in the Republican party. It indicates how much hold Trump still has over the said party’s down-ballot candidates.
The number is another indication that the former president remains a leader in the Republican party and holds sway over the GOP down-ballot candidates.
