A new survey from Echelon Insights released this week shows that former Vice President Mike Pence is at the top of a prospective 2024 GOP presidential field.
Pence took a whopping 21% of the poll’s respondents, followed by 10% favoring Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump Jr. took 8% each in the poll.
However, these results assume that former President Donald Trump declines to run in 2024. The same survey found that Republican voters are warming to the idea of Trump running in 2024, with 55% of voters supporting the idea.
This is terrible news for the establishment Republican party that hoped to be rid of Trump following his loss in the 2020 presidential election to President Joe Biden.
The survey found that “The 10-point lead between GOP voters supporting the Republican Party over Trump and those supporting Trump over the Party has narrowed since January, with just 44% now supporting the Party over Trump and 42% supporting Trump over the GOP.”
Trump is becoming the Republican party, and if he chooses to run in 2024, he will likely win the nomination. Four years of Democrats in power could provide Trump everything he needs to fight his way back into the White House.
