Former President Donald Trump continues to lead among potential Republican candidates for the 2024 presidential election.
When asked who they would support in the 2024 election, 54% of Republicans chose Donald Trump.
According to the New York Post, only 11% chose DeSantis and 8% picked former Vice President Mike Pence as found in a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll. Despite the overwhelming favor for Trump, he has not yet confirmed if he will be running in 2024.
In a November interview he said, “I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and probably will announce that after the midterms.”
The poll also showed Nikki Haley with 4% and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) with 3%, and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Texas Governor Greg Abbott at 2%. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) each received 1%. Fourteen percent answered, “not sure”.
President Biden has also not confirmed if he will run for re-election in 2024. Both Trump and Biden have high familiarity ratings, with other Republican candidates much lower. However, Biden’s favorability rating is 52% and is about Trump’s 44%. Fifty-six percent view Trump unfavorably, while 48% view Biden unfavorably.
