According to a new poll, 44% of Republicans and 70% of voters more broadly agree that former President Trump should not run for president again in 2024.
In addition, over half of the populace thinks that former President Donald Trump committed an unlawful act in connection with his alleged meddling in Georgia’s 2020 presidential election vote count. Another 12% believe his acts were immoral but technically lawful.
The public is more evenly split on whether his actions were unlawful (41%) or legal but immoral (33%), in the New York case where he has been charged with trying to hide hush money payments made to a woman who claimed to have had an affair with him.
Regarding the suspected meddling in the Georgia vote count, the hush money payments, his involvement in the events in the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, and the discovery of secret papers at his Florida residence, Democrats are more likely than Republicans to call Trump’s actions unlawful.
A staggering 44% of Republicans oppose Trump running for re-election, despite the fact that 70% do not want him to run for president in 2024.
In addition, if he were the Republican nominee in 2024, just 71% of Republicans would at probably support him, which would very certainly result in his defeat in the general election.
The national survey was carried out during April 13–17, 2023. 1,230 adults were interviewed over the phone and online using landlines and mobile phones. +/- 3.9 percentage points represent the margin of sampling error.
