Donald Trump continues to dominate the Republican Party even six months after leaving office.
And there are signs that he is set to sweep the 2024 election in a landslide.
And it’s all because one shock poll gives Trump a major lead in the next Republican primary.
When Joe Biden took office, Democrats hoped that would mark the definite end of Trump’s political career.
But they couldn’t have been more wrong.
Now, months after leaving office, Trump is inserting himself in the news cycle once again, and signs are indicating that he’s gearing up for a rematch against Joe Biden in 2024, as Trump may try and repeat history and become only the second person in history to be elected to the Presidency in two non-consecutive terms.
The only other person to accomplish this fear was Grover Cleveland, who was elected President in 1892 after losing his first re-election bid in 1888 in an election that was heavily disputed and littered with fraudulent ballots in several key swing states that likely cost him the election.
Now, a new poll shows that Trump could be trying to replicate Cleveland’s stunning return to the White House after his own defeat in 2020 was overshadowed by allegations of fraud in several key swing states, including Arizona, Michigan, and Georgia.
And should Trump make the jump and throw his hat in the ring for the 2024 election, there are several key signs that he could run away with the Republican nomination.
MSN reports, “More than 8 months after he lost the 2020 election, former President Donald Trump was able to celebrate another Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) win on Sunday after he topped the 2024 Republican presidential nomination straw poll at the Dallas event.”
“CPAC, made up of mostly right-wing Trump supporters, held two 2024 presidential straw polls: one with Trump and one without. Released in the afternoon, the results showed Trump capturing 70 percent of ballots cast, with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis coming in second at 21 percent. None of the other possible candidates made 1 percent in the anonymous straw poll.” adds MSN.
The landslide victory for Trump at the annual CPAC straw poll is a clear sign that he remains wildly popular within the Republican Party, and would likely run away with the nomination should he formally enter the race.
His only real competition is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is himself a close Trump ally and has gained widespread attention for his successful handling of the COVID outbreak in Florida, in stark contrast to the disasters Democratic Governors in California and New York oversaw.
But DeSantis, while hailed as a potential 2024 candidate himself and who dominates most straw polls that don’t include Trump as an option, likely has little shot of getting the nomination if Trump formally launches a campaign for the next presidential election.
“Trump’s win marked an improvement from the 55 percent he drew in the Orlando CPAC straw poll in February,” concludes MSN.
