It was one of the biggest applause lines in the former President’s roughly hour-long speech this weekend.
“In 2024 we are going to take back that beautiful, beautiful White House,” Trump said, repeating a well-used line. “I wonder who will do that. I wonder. I wonder.”
This, paired with President Biden saying that he’ll run for a second term in the White House if he remains healthy, may result in a 2024 rematch of the 2020 presidential election. According to a national poll released Friday by the Wall Street Journal, it’s all tied up between the President and the former President at this remarkably
early point in the next presidential election cycle.
Pence doesn't even win his home state of (IN) if he goes up against Trump in (2024) that's a 💯% fact— Chicago1Ray 🇺🇸 (@Chicago1Ray) March 14, 2022
Voters were split at 45% in a hypothetical matchup between Biden and Trump when asked who they would vote for in 2024. The poll was conducted March 2-7, and the results on the 2024 matchup question remain unchanged from the Journal’s previous poll conducted in November.
As he plays a kingmaker’s role in the GOP 2022 primaries, Trump remains the most popular and influential politician in the Republican Party. South Carolina plays an important role in
presidential politics, as it holds the first southern primary and votes third in the GOP’s presidential nominating calendar.
Dave Wilson – President of the Columbia, South Carolina-based conservative Christian nonprofit the Palmetto Family Council – informed Fox News that Trump’s rally “is much about impacting Washington DC in 2022 as it is about 2024.”
He proposed that Trump could use the rally to “see exactly where the voters are to make an informed choice about what he’s going to do in 2024.” Still, Trump is far from the only potential Republican White House hopeful to stop in the state over the past year. The other possible contender who’s made the most visits – former Vice President Mike Pence, who’s scheduled to return to the Palmetto State twice this spring.
Wilson spotlighted that anyone interested in running for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination “recognizes the importance of South Carolina” and “how important South Carolina is to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue becoming your place of residence.”
Will 2024 be a repeat of 2016, where Establishment Republicans put all their chips on sabotaging Trump?https://t.co/Nifvb8wOjl— Wayne Dupree Media, LLC ⭐️ (@WayneDupreeShow) March 14, 2022
