Most Republican voters favor President Trump to run again for president in 2024, trouncing potential rivals, including Vice President Mike Pence, son Donald Trump Jr., and a slate of prominent GOP figures, a new poll shows.
Trump nets 53% support among registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents surveyed Nov. 21-23 by Morning Consult/Politico. Pence, in a distant second place, lands at 12%, just ahead of Trump Jr., who with 8% comes in third.
Nikki Haley and Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mitt Romney of Utah each scored 4%. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida earned 2%, and Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Tim Scott of South Carolina, and Rick Scott of Florida each took 1%.
The sample size for Republican and lean Republican voters was 765 out of a total 1990 person sample, with a plus or minus 2 percentage point margin of error.
Trump, on Monday, while maintaining that he has not conceded the presidential race, directed the General Services Administration to begin the transition to a Biden administration.
