Despite giving the green light to General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy to move ahead with the transition process to a Biden administration, President Donald Trump has made it clear that he is not finished challenging the election results.
However, should former Vice President Joe Biden ultimately be sworn in on Jan. 20, there is nothing in the Constitution to prevent Trump from challenging him again in 2024. What’s more, it seems that a lot of people hope that he will.
According to a survey published by the communications and messaging firm Seven Letter, 66% of Republicans want Trump to seek another term, MarketWatch reported. The poll surveyed 1,500 respondents between Nov. 10 and 19.
Trump ahead of potential nominees
Although the figure drops when respondents are offered other alternatives, a plurality of respondents continued to throw their support behind Trump.
When poll respondents were provided with a list of candidates, 35% said they would favor another Trump presidency, compared with 19% who would back Vice President Mike Pence.
Eleven percent favored the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., while UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Sen. Ted Cruz received the support of 7 and 6% respectively.
The results showed that Pence had a higher favorability rating among Republicans despite fewer of them wanting him to make a presidential run.
Thus far, only one United States president has ever served two non-consecutive terms. In 1884, Grover Cleveland was the first Democrat to win an election following the Civil War and successfully ran again four years later.
Seven Letter also found that 79% of Republicans believe that the November presidential election was stolen, an even higher number than was reported by a Rasmussen poll published last week.
In that survey, 66% of participants said that it was “very likely” that Democrats stole the election, a view shared by 29% of independent voters.
Other findings from the Seven Letter poll show increasing political divisions, with roughly equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans saying they would be less likely to hire a member of the opposing party.
Approximately half of both Democrats and Republicans said they would be upset if their child married across party lines.
