Nearly 70% of Republican voters say they support Donald Trump despite his recent arrest and other criminal investigations, according to a poll published by NBC News on Sunday conducted over the previous weekend, APA reports citing Teletrader.
This makes Trump the most likely runner for the 2024 presidential elections, with his double-digit lead over likely rival Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Trump leads the polls with 46%, while DeSantis currently has 31%. However, most Americans don’t want Trump nor President Joe Biden to run again for office, citing age as a major reason.
“At this stage, 2024 is shaping up to be a sequel of the 2020 election. Sequels are frequent hits at the box office, but apparently not at the ballot box … It’s clear that people do not want a Biden-Trump rematch,” pollsters Jeff Horwitt and Bill McInturff argued. 41% of the polled would vote for Biden, while 47% said they would back a Republican nominee.
