When it coms to Republican candidates for president in 2024, Trump leads the field.
This isn’t very surprising, given that he had such a successful presidency from 2016 to 2020. Conservatives can point to a lot of successful policies under his leadership.
This also increases specualtion about whether or not he will run again.
The New York Post reports:
Trump leads all Republicans in poll on 2024 presidential election
Former President Donald Trump holds a commanding lead over other potential Republican candidates in the 2024 presidential election, leading Fla. Gov. Ron DeSantis by 43 percentage points, a new poll shows.
Asked who they would support in the 2024 election, 54 percent of Republicans picked Trump, while 11 percent chose DeSantis and 8 percent picked former Vice President Mike Pence, a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted last month and released Friday found.
Trump has not officially announced another run for the White House, but he has said he’s “thinking about it.”
“I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and probably will announce that after the midterms,” he said in an interview in November.
Nikki Haley, the UN ambassador in the Trump administration, came in fourth with 4 percent of support, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at 3 percent, and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott getting 2 percent.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) each finished with 1 percent.
Trump’s lead is significant.

This is precisely why Democrats and the media are still working so hard to make Trump politically toxic.
