Poll: Nearly Half of Americans Support Trump Running in 2024
While President Donald Trump’s legal efforts to remain in the White House appear to be failing, a poll released Monday indicates that more than half of Americans are in favor of Trump running for president again in 2024.
Trump has claimed victory in the 2020 election although many media outlets have projected a win for President-elect Joe Biden. Trump has thus far refused to concede the election and has filed lawsuits in some battleground states alleging widespread electoral manipulation. For the most part, those lawsuits have been dismissed by judges. Some observers believe that Trump could mount another presidential campaign in 2024. According to a Hill-HarrisX daily poll published Monday, many Americans think Trump should follow through with those alleged plans.
According to the poll, 47 percent of registered voters support Trump running again in 2024. Republicans comprised a majority of that number with 75 percent backing a second Trump campaign. While only 24 percent of Democrats supported the idea, 47 percent of Independent voters gave the idea their support.
Voters who did not support a second Trump presidential run numbered 53 percent. Most of those voters—76 percent—were Democrats. However, 25 percent of those who did not think Trump should run again were Republicans. A majority of Independent voters were also against the idea, with 53 percent saying they were in opposition to the idea.
