Paul finds the majority of Americans want to see a fresh face in the Oval Office in 2024 – not Trump or Biden, Musk hints he may support DeSantis bid, 2 major Supreme Court decisions and more in conservative politics.
The results of the latest Yahoo/YouGov poll found that a majority of Americans want to see a new face as president in 2024 that is not Donald Trump or Joe Biden. Most respondents, 64%, said Biden should not run for reelection in 2024. Likewise, 55 percent of respondents felt Trump should not run for reelection in 2024.
Only 21% thought Biden should run again, while 31% thought Trump should run again.

Billionaire Elon Musk hesitated on Tuesday when asked if he would support former President Donald Trump in the 2024 election, the Western Journal reported.
However, in an interview posted by Bloomberg last week, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO said that he might potentially support Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the White House.
“I was asked, well, who might you be leaning towards?” Musk said. “I said possibly DeSantis.”
Musk was asked by Bloomberg News Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait about the political action committee he previously mentioned forming to support moderate candidates.
“I’ve not decided on an amount,” Musk said, “but it would be some non-trivial figure, I think.”
“I’ve not decided on an exact amount, but perhaps it would be $20 million or $25 million,” Musk clarified.
In a precedent-setting case that could have greater implications for the separation between church and state, the Supreme Court ruled that Maine cannot deny the use of public money as tuition aid to schools that promote religious instruction.
The Supreme Court voted in 6-3, with the court’s three liberals in dissent, the Washington Post reported.
The case involved an unusual program that affected families who live in remote areas without public high schools, NBC reported.
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that Maine’s program “promotes stricter separation of church and state than the federal Constitution requires,” adding that the program was not neutral because “the state pays tuition for certain students at private schools — so long as the schools are not religious. That is discrimination against religion.”
Over the weekend, the Republican Party of Texas passed and adopted a resolution at its state convention on Saturday rejecting Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 election CNN reported.
“We reject the certified results of the 2020 Presidential election, and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States,” the text of the resolution reads. “We strongly urge all Republicans to work to ensure election integrity and to show up to vote in November of 2022, bring your friends and family, volunteer for your local Republicans, and overwhelm any possible fraud.”
Following an increase in crime in the wake of the “defund the police movement,” the Minnesota Supreme Court sided with a group of Minneapolis residents who sued the city for not hiring the required minimum of at least 731 police officers based on the 2020 Census and the city’s population.
Even though the city was budgeted to hire 770 officers, as of late May, there were only 621 officers on the payroll.
The court ruled that the city must hire at least 100 officers, Fox reported.
