New Poll Shows Republican Majority Open to ‘Fresh Face’ in 2024 Race

This could get very interesting.

There has been plenty of talk in recent weeks about precisely what Donald Trump’s post-presidency plans look like, should his effort to overturn the 2020 election remain unsuccessful.

For a while, it seemed likely that Trump would slip out of the White House and into a role in some MAGA media empire, possibly based out of his sprawling resort at Mar-a-Lago.  Then there were rumors that Trump would find himself with a possible contributor gig at Newsmax, but the bigwigs at the media agency quickly shot that down.

The most prominent rumor of late was that Trump would simply announce his 2024 candidacy during Joe Biden’s inauguration, which would be quite the move, likely freezing out any number of Republican contenders before they even got started.

A recent poll may put a damper on those plans, however.

A slight majority of Republicans said they want to see a “fresh face” run for President in 2024, while one-third indicated they would like to see “a candidate who has already run in the past,” says a December 21-2 poll by Rasmussen Reports.

The question in the poll of 1,000 likely voters offered room for still-mourning Republicans to show support for a 2024 candidate younger than departing President Donald Trump, who would turn 78 during the 2024 race, and turn 82 in 2028.

The “fresh face” option was picked by 52 percent of Republicans and 49 percent of conservatives.

The “run in the past” candidate was picked by 33 percent of Republicans and 36 percent of Conservatives, likely indicating strong personal support for President Trump.

Fifteen percent of both groups said they were unsure.

The poll wasn’t all bad news for Trump, however, as those surveyed showed heavy support for a “populist” politician, 72% to 24%.
