When it comes to who's going to be representing the party in 2024, Republicans are pretty split as of now.
A new poll by Quinnipiac University released days after former President Donald Trump announced his third run at the presidency revealed that 44% of Republican voters would like to see him as the GOP nominee in 2024. However, another 44% of Republican voters said that they would prefer Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Outside of Republicans though, it isn't even close. Trump got blown out of the water.
Fifty-seven percent of adults surveyed thought that it was a bad idea for Trump to make a third bid for America's presidency. Just 34% of adults support Trump's move to run yet again.
The numbers look even worse for Donald when you let all voters regardless of party compare him to DeSantis.
Almost half of Americans would prefer to see DeSantis as the 2024 Republican nominee, while only 29% want that man to be Trump.
It's hard to tell if liberals chose DeSantis as a possible alternative to the Democrat in 2024 or they were expressing the belief that Trump would be more difficult to defeat.
The numbers will become clearer in the coming months and years, but Trump needs to be aware of trends now. It's going to be a grueling 24 months for Donald.
Time will tell if he's up for the challenge again.
