(USA Features) A substantial majority of Republican voters want former President Donald Trump to make a third bid for the White House in 2024, according to a new Quinnipiac University survey.
The poll found that 66% of GOP voters would like to see Trump run again for a second term, which is the same percentage of voters who believe the 2020 election was “stolen” from the former president.

“The numbers fly in the face of any predictions that Donald Trump’s political future is in decline,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy. “By a substantial majority, Republicans: (1) believe the election was stolen from him, (2) want Trump to run again, and (3), if they can’t vote for Trump, prefer someone who agrees with him.”
The survey comes as some in the party including Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, as well as Sens. Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski, have pushed the party to move away from Trump.
As for the survey, Quinnipiac also found that ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, fully 85% of GOP voters want candidates who largely agree with Trump and his ‘America First’ policies.
The university went on to say that the latest survey figures overall are “fairly similar” to polls taken after the election in December and January 2021.
Also, 57% of Americans feel the GOP is heading in the wrong direction while most Democrats, 46-44%, say the same about their party, the survey found.
