If Trump were to run in 2024, a new poll shows he will easily win

Who might preside over former President Trump's trial in the senate?

Perhaps the optimistic outcome of this recent poll would actually entice Donald Trump to join the presidential race in 2024.

The former president has repeatedly said that he is looking at the prospect “very seriously” but “it’s a bit too soon” to launch his bid.

According to a May 2021 poll, Donald Trump will be the clear winner if he ran in the 2024 presidential election against Vice President Kamala Harris.

When McLaughlin & Associates polled potential voters for the general election, they found that more than three-quarters of Republicans would vote for Trump. In reality, 83 percent of likely Republican voters say they would vote for Trump in the general election.

Trump has almost unanimous Republican Party endorsement and seems to be preferred over all other future Republican contenders.

As opposed to former Vice President Mike Pence, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, Trump took the majority lead at 57 percent.

Meanwhile, Pence was second with 10%, DeSantis was second with 8%, and Haley was fifth with 5%.

Where does Trump stand with the rest of the country now that Republican votes seem to be in his grasp?

Given that 64 percent of voters surveyed thought Vice President Kamala Harris will take over the nation’s highest office before President Joe Biden’s official term ends, Trump seems to be in good shape.

In a simulated race against will-be President Harris, Trump would win by four percentage points in the general election.

In the poll, the majority of electors were unfavourable to Harris. According to the poll, she is viewed unfavourably by 48% of those polled, although she is viewed favourably by 47%.

However, Harris also pulled clear of other Democratic rivals in a hypothetical primary. Up against former first lady Michelle Obama, who won 16 percent, Harris lead with 35 percent.

In comparison, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received 7% of the vote, while Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg received 6%.

If Harris had to face Trump, she would lose with 45 percent of the vote to the former president’s 49 percent.

The Chicago Bears interviewed Reggie McKenzie for their GM vacancy. Here’s what to know about the Miami Dolphins senior personnel executive.

The Chicago Bears have reached out to at least 15 general manager candidates and 10 coaching candidates for interviews. As they go through the interview process, we’re looking at each of the prospective hires.

Reggie McKenzie interviewed for the GM opening on Thursday, the team announced.

Reggie McKenzie

Title: Miami Dolphins senior personnel executive

Age: 58

Experience

Before joining the Dolphins in 2019, McKenzie spent seven seasons as the Oakland Raiders general manager. He was named the Sporting News and PFWA executive of the year in 2016 after a 12-4 playoff season that included seven players making the Pro Bowl.

That was the Raiders’ only winning season in his seven as his teams went 40-72.

Among the players he drafted were Khalil Mack, Derek Carr, Amari Cooper and Latavius Murray.

Before joining the Raiders, McKenzie spent 18 years with the Green Bay Packers as a pro personnel assistant, the director of pro personnel and the director of football operations. The Packers won two Super Bowls in that span.

You should know

McKenzie was an NFL linebacker who played 60 games over five seasons with the Raiders and San Francisco 49ers from 1985-92. He played in college at Tennessee.

Chicago connection

In 2014, McKenzie drafted current Bears outside linebacker Khalil Mack fifth overall.

In 2018, after coach Jon Gruden was hired and negotiations for an extension soured between the Raiders and Mack, the team traded Mack, a second-round pick and a conditional fifth-round pick in 2020 to the Bears. The Raiders received two first-round picks, a third-round pick and a sixth-round pick over the next two seasons. The Bears then gave Mack a six-year extension.

Mack was named a Pro Bowler each of his next three seasons with the Bears but missed 10 games this year with injury.

What has been said

Before firing McKenzie in December 2018, Raiders owner Mark Davis spoke to ESPN about the Raiders’ roster issues.

“It’s been all part of an evolution, but I think it’s becoming clearer and clearer to Jon (Gurden), as well, that the talent is just not here at this time,” Davis said. “The drafts did not help supplement what we were doing in the free-agent market. If you look at our roster now, it’s a bunch of free-agent, one-year guys that are mercenaries. And they’re great guys, and they’re Raiders. Once a Raider, always a Raider … but we just don’t have the overall talent of a 22-man roster.”

Before the Raiders hired McKenzie in 2012, former Packers executive Ron Wolf told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: “Reggie’s a tremendous evaluator. He can tell you who can play and who can’t play. That’s what it’s all about. Some can write reports but can’t tell you who can play. Whatever that is, he has that. He has a feel.”

The Chicago Bears interviewed Byron Leftwich for their coaching vacancy. Here’s what to know about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator.

The Chicago Bears have reached out to at least 15 general manager and 10 coaching candidates for interviews. As they go through the process, we’re looking at each of the prospective hires.

Byron Leftwich interviewed for the coach opening Thursday, the team announced.

Byron Leftwich

Title: Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator

Age: 42.

Experience

Leftwich has been the Bucs offensive coordinator under coach Bruce Arians for three seasons, including during the 2020 run to the Super Bowl LV victory in Tom Brady’s first season in Tampa, Fla..

In Leftwich’s first season with the Bucs calling plays in 2019, he directed the top-ranked passing offense in yards per game as Jameis Winston threw for 5,109 yards, 33 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. The Bucs passing offense the last two seasons with Brady has ranked second and first in the NFL, respectively.

Leftwich started his career with Arians and the Arizona Cardinals as an intern in 2016 before he became the quarterbacks coach in 2017 and offensive coordinator in 2018.

You should know

Leftwich started 50 games and played in 60 over nine seasons as a quarterback with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Pittsburgh Steelers, Atlanta Falcons and Bucs. He threw for 10,532 yards 58 touchdown passes, 42 interceptions and 78.9 passer rating in his career. He finished sixth in the Heisman Trophy voting in his senior season at Marshall.

Chicago connection

As a player, Leftwich played only one game against the Bears — a 22-3 Jaguars victory in 2004. Leftwich threw for 242 yards, two touchdowns and an interception to Nathan Vasher.

What’s been said

Arians was upset Leftwich didn’t get a head coaching interview last year at this time.

“He’s everything everybody is supposedly looking for — a quarterback, a playcaller and he’s African-American, so I mean, I don’t know what else you’re looking for,” Arians said before the Super Bowl. “He’s a great leader.

“I was very, very pissed that Byron didn’t at least get an interview this year for the job that he has done. I get way too much credit, and so does Tom Brady, for the job Byron has done.”
