This is incredible.

One would think it would be a no-brainer for Republicans to reject Donald Trump as the party’s nominee for 2024, considering the twice-impeached one-term president cost them the House, the Senate, and the White House. And then he attempted a coup. But Republicans are still standing by the former president. Even though most voters do not want Trump to run for the presidency again, a majority of Republicans want him to give the White House another shot, according to a new poll.

“A Marquette Law School Poll survey of adults nationwide finds a majority of Republicans wanting former President Donald Trump to run for president in 2024, although a majority of all adults in the survey say they do not want him to run,” the report states. “Among all respondents, 28% would like to see Trump make another run for the presidency, while 71% do not want him to run again.”

“Republicans are most favorable to a Trump run. Sixty percent say he should run, while 40% of Republicans say they do not want him to run,” the report adds. “A minority of independents would like Trump to run in 2024, and large majorities of those who identify as Democrats oppose a Trump rerun.”

The poll results show Trump with an iron grip on the Republican Party, with 60% of Republican voters wanting to see him run again, and 40% of Republicans opposing another Trump run.

The poll also showed that 68% of Independents view Trump unfavorably, while 28% have a favorable view.

It feels like we live in an upside-down world where up is down and down is up. President Joe Biden has been slipping in the polls even though just hours after being sworn in, he signed a historic 17 executive actions – 15 of which will be executive orders, all significant reversals from former President Donald Trump’s policies. The pandemic is finally being taken seriously, with 194 million Americans being fully vaccinated — that’s 58.9% of the U.S. population. And because of Biden’s aggressive stimulus policies, the economy has revived at a record pace, and huge strides have been made in slashing poverty – especially child poverty. Biden signed a historic infrastructure bill after Trump failed to deliver one during his four years in office. And yet, Republicans want the guy that danced to YMCA at super-spreader events while Americans died back in the White House.
