Former President Donald Trump remains the overwhelming favorite among Republican voters to be their party’s nominee in 2024, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released on Monday.
Fifty-three percent of GOP voters said that they would vote for Trump if the 2024 primary were held today, the poll showed, more than the rest of the field combined. Former Vice President Mike Pence was second with 12%, and Donald Trump Jr. and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley were tied for third with 6%.
The extremely preliminary poll was released two days after Trump was acquitted by the Senate on a charge of inciting the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6. Though only 57 senators voted to convict, seven Republicans voted to do so, making it the most bipartisan conviction vote in American history.
