Good news for the former president.
According to a new Morning Consult poll, 52% of GOP voters want former President Donald Trump to run again in 2024; down only slightly from the 57% that said the same shortly after the Mar-a-Lago raid.
“It is so obvious this is a political stunt designed to stop the president from running in 2024,” Peter Navarro, former Trump White House trade adviser, said of the raid. “They might have been able to get away with it if they hadn’t killed the economy.
Trump’s clout —as well as TRUTH Social users —spiked after the raid.
“But that is the dealbreaker, juxtaposed against their history of going after a man who did nothing but save jobs.”
DeSantis gained just 1 point in the poll amid recent attacks on Trump.
“I don’t think there’s any stunt that DeSantis can attempt that will dislodge Trump as the clear front-runner in this race at this point,” a Trump adviser told Politico. “With Trump at the center of the Democrat media hate-machine, it’s going to be nearly impossible to dislodge him from Republican voters.”
Morning Consult polled 2,005 registered midterm voters Sept. 16-18 for Politico. The results have a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
