A new survey finds that former President Donald Trump is reaching 60% Republican support, but all of his possible GOP competitors for the 2024 presidential race are in single digits.
Rasmussen Reports indicated that 59% of Republican voters would back Trump in 2024 if he ran again. He gained significantly from his January 2021 Republican approval rating of 49%.
The survey also indicated that no other GOP Trump candidate had more than 10% Republican support. Most likely Trump challenger Ron DeSantis gets 9% support, followed by former Vice President Mike Pence with 8%.
Despite losing the 2020 election to President Joe Biden, the survey suggests Donald Trump remains the Republican Party’s leader. Trump has continued to host rallies and make public appearances while leaving office, keeping a prominent media profile.

Trump may run for president again in 2024, but he will be a tough contender. He will be tough to beat in a primary election since the survey shows he has substantial Republican support.
The survey shows that Trump remains the GOP’s most popular politician despite his 2020 defeat to Biden. Trump would likely win the GOP nomination if he ran for president again in 2024 due to his high Republican popularity.
Trump’s possible GOP competitors have similarly failed to win Republican voters, according to the survey. Trump’s likely adversary, DeSantis, has 9% support, while no other candidate has more than 8%.
The poll’s results hurt Trump’s GOP competitors, but they don’t mean he’s untouchable in 2024. Many Republicans oppose Trump, who divides them. If Trump runs again, incumbent president Biden will be a strong opponent.
