Former President Donald Trump holds a strong lead in a new poll of a possible 2024 Republican presidential primary field.
A survey by Morning Consult has shown that most Republican voters want Mr Trump to run for the presidency for the third time, but that among a group that would rather he stay out of the race – the top candidates are former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
More than two-thirds – 67 per cent – of GOP voters say Mr Trump should run again, according to the Morning Consult/Politico poll, which found that 29 per cent of Republicans say Mr Trump should stay out of the race.
The share of Republicans who hold a favourable view of Mr Trump is even higher – 82 per cent, while only 17 per cent have an unfavourable view of the former president. Some Republicans like Mr Trump, but still don’t think he should run again.
