2024 WATCH: Trump enters 2022 as clear frontrunner for next GOP presidential nomination

President Trump is unquestionably the clear frontrunner for the Republican Party nominee in 2024. Governor DeSantis is the second most popular figure in the Republican Party. The two should just run together in 2024 to take down the Left. If President Trump runs for POTUS with Governor DeSantis as his running mate, he would need to change his residency to another state because of the 12th Amendment. Not a big deal though.

2024 Watch: Trump enters 2022 as clear frontrunner for next GOP presidential nomination

Your weekly look at the latest developments, buzz and speculation in the next race for the White House

By Fox News, January 1, 2022

Former President Donald Trump begins the new year in the same political position he ended the old year – as hands down the most popular and influential politician in the GOP.

With just over 10 months to go until the starting gun in the next race for the White House, Trump remains the overwhelming front-runner in the hunt for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

The most recent public opinion numbers come from a Reuters/Ipsos national poll conducted in mid-December and released a couple of days ago. Fifty-four percent of Republicans questioned in the survey said they’d back the former president as their party’s standard-bearer in 2024.

Trump spent 2021 repeatedly flirting with another White House run.

“I am certainly thinking about it,” he told Fox News in a November interview.

“I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision,” the former president added, suggesting that such a decision would be announced after the 2022 midterm elections.

The Reuters/Ipsos survey is in line with other public opinion surveys of the 2024 GOP nomination race. An average of all the most recent national polls puts Trump at 52% support, light years ahead of the rest of the other possible Republican White House hopefuls.

But of note: The support for the nomination Trump grabs in these public opinion surveys is a good 20-30 points lower than his overall standing among GOP voters. Trump’s favorable rating among Republicans in the Reuters/Ipsos poll stood at 82%.

Another early 2024 barometer is fundraising – where Trump was a juggernaut in 2021.

The former president’s three main political fundraising committees reported hauling in a combined $82 million during the first six months of the 2021, with over $100 million cash on hand as of the end of July, which was the most recent filing period for the groups. Fueling much of the fundraising are Trump’s baseless claims that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen.”

One thing Trump’s fundraising, impressive poll position, immense clout over his party, and repeated flirtations has not done is discourage other potential GOP White House hopefuls from visiting the states that kick off the presidential primary and caucus calendar.

As Fox News recently reported, there were 15 trips last year to Iowa – the state that for half a century’s kicked off the nominating calendar – by nine potential Republican presidential contenders. That’s not far off from the 17 visits by 11 possible candidates in 2013 at the same early point in the wide-open GOP nomination race in the 2016 cycle.

And according to a Fox News count, there were also eight visits to New Hampshire in 2021 by six potential contenders, close to the 11 visits by seven possible candidates in 2013 to the state that for a century has held the first presidential primary in the nominating calendar.
