Poltico: in the US, five states that supported Biden in 2020 are ready to vote for Trump
Former US President Donald Trump has a chance return to the White House following the presidential elections in 2024. Signs of his possible re-election were noticed by the American publication Politico.
As the newspaper notes, Trump's strategy for his return to the presidency will be based on working with five hesitant states that ensured the victory of the current American leader Joe Biden in 2020. We are talking about Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, which gave Biden a total of 73 electoral votes, which became the guarantee of his election victory.
Trump has held four rallies for his supporters in these states since last year, and has supported dozens of Republican candidates running for top positions in those regions, seeking to secure potential allies for the next presidential election, according to Politico. In particular, in Michigan alone, the ex-president has supported 11 Republican candidates in state and federal elections in recent months.
As a result, according to the results of a recent poll, which were at the disposal of the publication, at the moment Trump is ready to support 8 percent more voters than Biden, in Georgia – by 3 percent, in Michigan – by 12 percent, in Pennsylvania – by 6 percent. and in Wisconsin by 10 percent.
“This new data makes it clear that voters in these five key states today would be happy to bring Trump back to the White House and send Biden home,” leading GOP sociologist Tony Fabrizio told Politico. According to him, Trump remains the most visible figure among the Republicans and will certainly be able to become a candidate from them if he decides to run in 2024.
In addition, the newspaper writes, the seriousness of Trump's intentions to lead the United States again testifies the fact that his team was actively involved in attracting sponsors for the future election campaign. So, on December 2, at the Trump residence in Mar-a-Lago in Florida, the largest fundraising event will be held, which will bring together all the main donors of the Republican Party. Also, one of Trump's political action committees (PAC) Save America recently hired one of the former aides of ex-President Lynn Patton to help him with the formation of political coalitions.
Trump advisers believe, The politician will announce his decision to run in the 2024 presidential elections if the Republicans show a good result in the midterm congressional elections, which will be held in 2022, and can get a majority in at least one of the houses of parliament.
