Could Trump be Catapulted in the Polls with a Packed GOP Presidential Election Bid?
Deja Vu situations of the 2016 presidential election become clearer as Trump edges (possibly) his announcement of a 2024 presidential bid...
The ever-waiting confirmation of another Donald Trump presidential bid seems to be right around the corning. Polling shows he is the most popular Republican figure but this is an achievement that wasn’t always the case. At one point, Trump had to compete against a handful of political rivals, specifically in 2016.
Even after losing Iowa and receiving just one-third of the votes in certain states, he pulled out on top when it mattered. The idea that those opposing him in the GOP and the Democratic party while also not being able to build around a single candidate may once again work in his favor.
"I fear it could end up the same way as 2016, which basically was everyone thought everyone else should get out. I think every major candidate realized that he or she would have a better shot against Trump one-on-one. But of course, each person thought he or she should be the one to get that shot and nobody got out of the way. ... And then it was too late.”
Mike DuHaime, a Republican strategist, said.
The puzzle pieces are falling right in place. Trump now has an ever-growing list of competitors such as Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Rick Scott, Tim Scott, and even possibly Ron DeSantis. Liz Cheney has also given some indication of a possible presidential bid in spite of Trump.
For these possible presidential hopefuls, Trump is facing many legal troubles. The House Committee investigating the January 6th riots has been the main source of indicating certain aspects of Trump’s involvement with the riots. Even the Trump family is on board to speak against their father as his son and his daughter Ivanka have agreed to answer questions under oath beginning next week in the state attorney general’s civil investigation into his business practices.
According to Mick Mulvaney, a former congressman who served as the acting White House Chief of Staff under Trump suggested there might be “an opening where none existed two months ago.” He continued, “Trump fatigue might be a real thing, can get the same policies without all the baggage.”
No matter the consensus, Trump has shown no sign of slowing down on his own events. Last night, he was campaigning in Las Vegas with Adam Laxalt. Tonight, he plans a rally in Alaska with Kelly Tshibaka.
