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.
