Tucker Carlson is on fire.
His FOX News show is now the most watched cable news show in history and he’s hitting these numbers with people in all age groups.
Some people are even beginning to think he should run for president in 2024.
REPUBLICANS BELIEVE TUCKER CARLSON WOULD BE PRESIDENTIAL FRONTRUNNER IN 2024
Tucker Carlson is breaking records on television — but is that his ceiling?
There’s buzzing chatter of Carlson running for president in 2024. It was revealed in a feature published by Politico that multiple Republican strategists, conservative commentators, and former Trump campaign officials believe Carlson would be the immediate frontrunner in a Republican primary.
“He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” Republican strategist Luke Thompson said.
Sam Nunberg, a former political aide to President Donald Trump, has some doubts that Carlson, who is “disgusted with politicians,” would run. However, if he did, Nunberg likes his chances:
“Let me put it this way: If Biden wins and Tucker decided to run, he’d be the nominee,” Nunberg explained.
Sixteen prominent Republicans interviewed by Politico agreed that the Fox News primetime host would be a “formidable” candidate.
“No one can dismiss this and say it’s completely implausible,” Rich Lowry, editor of the National Review, added.
Tucker has never given any indication that he is interested in running for office, but it’s pretty amazing that people are talking about it.
