US President Donald Trump would win the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 if he decided to run for the presidency again, a new poll has revealed.

The survey, which was conducted by Politico and the global privately-held data intelligence company Morning Consult, found that Trump had the support of 53% of GOP respondents and Republican-leaning independents.

Twelve percent of them signaled their preference for Vice President Mike Pence, while the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., came third with 8%, according to the poll.

With many respondents perceiving Trump as the Republican nominee for the 2024 presidency, the survey separately revealed that at least 45% of Republicans strongly disapprove of the president’s current job performance.

The poll came after a survey conducted by the company Seven Letter Insight showed that 66% of Republican voters want Trump to run for re-election in the 2024 presidential election, while another 38% would like the president to “refuse to give up power and remain in the White House”.
