Half of Republicans do NOT want Trump to Run for the 2024 Presidential Ticket
Standing in his way, outside of his other issues, is a possible run by Ron DeSantis...
According to new polling from the NYT and Siena College, Republicans will not be hitting the polls to vote for Donald Trump if he chooses to run again in the upcoming election. Support from his own base has downsized as well as the potential support from those on the outside looking in. Half of the Republican primary voter respondents in the polls say they want a new candidate for the next general election.
64% of those aged 35 years and younger stated they would object to a Trump presidential bid. Those who are college-educated claimed they too would vote against him (65%). It’s obvious that Trump voters are fed up with the efforts to overturn the Biden Presidency. Also, many voters have been witness to the actions of Trump surrounding the January 6th Capitol Riots.
When asked if Trump had gone so far that he threatened American democracy, nearly 20% of Republicans said yes. Even as 20% is a measly figure, it shows a growing discontent. 49% of primary voters also said they would support Trump in 2024. The one individual standing in Trump’s way is Ron DeSantis who has yet to announce his own presidential bid.
Approval throughout the GOP for Ron DeSantis has been one for the record books. His age and military experience can be the pivot point to making a successful presidential run possible. Of the 350 respondents, 1/4 of them claimed they would nominate DeSantis to lead the ticket.
16% of respondents said instead of Trump they would in turn support Joe Biden or a third-party candidate.
