According to former President Donald Trump’s inner circle, it’s almost a given that he will run in 2024. Former campaign spokesperson Jason Miller described it as a near certainty, the Daily Mail reported.
“I would say somewhere between 99 and 100 percent,” Miller told Cheddar last week. “I think he is running in 2024.”
“I had a good conversation with him last night,” Miller continued. “I’m going to see him in another couple days here.”
According to another former senior Trump administration official, the blunders made by the Biden administration didn’t “intensify” Trump’s desire to run as much is it “did convince Americans about the choice.”
In Rasmussen’s latest presidential tracking poll released on Monday, 52% of respondents “strongly” disapproved of president Joe Biden’s job performance, while only 46% approved.
In the latest election poll conducted by Emerson College, in staging a rematch of last year’s election and forecasting for 2024, former President Donald Trump defeated President Joe Biden, Newsmax reported.
Trump won the contest with a narrow margin of 47% over Biden, who captured 46% support.
A total of 67% of Republicans said they would vote for Trump in the GOP primary, while 10% would prefer another candidate. Among the leading contenders other than Trump, if the former president did not run, 32% would vote for Ron DeSantis (R-FL), and 24% would choose former vice president Mike Pence.
The poll also showed Biden’s approval rating dropping to 46% from a previous 49% in February.
After two quorum-breaking walkouts by Democrats in which they exited en masse to Washington, D.C., as well as arrest warrants that forced Democratic state lawmakers to return to the Texas capital, a bill enacting more stringent voting restrictions reached the desk of Governor Greg Abbott.
On Monday, Abbott signed the bill into law. The bill imposes criminal penalties for violating voting laws, bans 24-hour and drive-through voting, and allows more access for partisan poll watchers.
“I feel extremely confident that when this law makes it through the litigation phase, it will be upheld in a court of law,” Abbott told reporters. “No one who is eligible to vote will be denied the opportunity to vote. It does, however, make it harder for cheaters to cast an illegal ballot.”
The White House pledged on Tuesday to battle against new voting restrictions, according to statements made by White House press secretary Jen Psaki, the Washington Post reported.
