(RepublicanInformer.com)- Former President Donald Trump appears prepared for a third run for the White House. Trump has been ragging about his numerous primary endorsement victories this year, made frequent allusions to a potential rematch with Joe Biden, and casually criticizing potential 2024 GOP candidate Governor Ron DeSantis.
Trump has a war fund of $122 million, in addition to having the backing of the majority of Republican voters. With President Biden’s popularity ratings at an all-time low, the odds are in favor of Trump in 2024.
What would prevent Trump from running? He has stated that his health is the only thing that may prevent him from running for office again.
Reports show the former President emphasized maintaining good health while campaigning. When asked about the 2024 presidential campaign, Trump highlighted health as a decisive factor. Trump explained you could appear to be in good health, but the next day a doctor may ask you to come in again. When they use “again,” it’s not good.
During an appearance on “The Water Cooler,” Trump was again questioned about what might keep him from running in 2024. Trump supposed a bad call from a physician would keep him from running. “When things happen, through God, they happen. But I feel great,” Trump continued.
Polls have historically been shown to be unreliable. At this point, it’s unclear if poor polling results will discourage the former president. It doesn’t seem plausible that Trump would decide against running for president if national polling indicated a Democratic triumph. Trump is probably aware of the well-known “shy” Trump voter effect and that surveys don’t always accurately represent reality.
Polls at the end of 2021 showed that a resounding majority of Republicans still supported the former president’s bid for reelection in 2024. According to a Quinnipiac poll, 78 percent of Republicans wanted Trump to run for president a third time, up from 66 percent in May of the same year.
However, surveys this year indicate that the former president has competition. Trump continues to lead the Republican Party, but Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has not declared his intention to run in 2024, is growing in popularity as a potential contender among Republican voters.
Assuming Trump remains in good health, disappointing polls may stoke the fire and inspire him to fight as hard as he did in 2016.
