After Donald Trump re-announced his candidacy for the presidency of America in the 2024 race, the results of the latest opinion polls were very disappointing.
According to a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, about six in ten Americans (57%) said it was bad for Trump to run again, and only 34% thought it was a good thing to do, according to an analysis published by the American network CNN. .
Unsurprisingly, the American Network pointed out that Trump’s performance among Democrats on this issue is poor, as 88% think it’s bad that he launched his campaign for the 2024 White House.
But that’s not what Trump should be worried about, but his numbers among independents (58% say his candidacy is bad) and even among Republicans (27% say it’s bad) should worry the former president.
The poll revealed the simple fact that a significant portion of the population — not just Democrats — believes that another Trump run is a bad idea for the country.
This is not the only negative takeaway from the Trump poll; There are several other points that suggest that not only are Republicans open to Ron DeSantis running for the White House, but that the Florida governor also poses a real threat to Trump.
Six out of ten Republicans said they would like to see DeSantis run for president, and only a quarter said they would not. When asked about their preference for the Republican nomination in the 2024 race, 44% of Republicans chose DeSantis, the same number as those who chose Trump.
According to CNN, the data indicates that Trump will not only be a weak candidate in the general election, but there is room on the Republican field for someone other than the former president.
According to the US newspaper The Hill, Trump’s re-election came after disappointing Republican results in the midterm elections, including the loss of a number of the former president’s favorite candidates.
While it seems like many in the Republican Party are turning away from Trump, the names of his potential competitors in the 2024 race have emerged, including Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Florida Gov. DeSantis, and former Vice President Mike Pence.
DeSantis, who performed well in a hypothetical anti-Trump primary, fueled 2024 speculation by defeating Democrat Charlie Crist in the midterms.
Last month, Pence ducked a question about whether he would vote for Trump in the 2024 race.
