So far, 2020 has been an endless parade of fresh hellpotential war, destructive
Australian bushfires, attacks on Roe v. Wade, and this fucking thing, to name a
few nightmares. And now this: a new poll circulating among Republicans and
Republicans who lean independent has Donald Trump Jr. listed as a top
presidential pick for 2024. Yes, this one!
The Guardian reports that the poll, circulated by Axios and Survey Monkey, found
the most popular contender for the 2024 Republican nomination is Mike Pence, a
man who does not seem to know who did 9/11. The second most popular contender is
Don Jr., whom a whopping 29 percent of respondents thought would make the next
best president. Still this one!
Baby Trump was a particular favorite among younger Republican voters, as was his
sister, Ivanka, whom 16 percent of total respondents picked as the next
candidate. Apparently, the Guardian predicted this when Don Jr.s book,
Triggered, came out:
Reviewing the book for the Guardian, Lloyd Green said it was a better campaign
biography than most and was best viewed as the opening salvo of the Trump
child with real political chops.
The presidents oldest child, Green wrote, truly connects with the partys
base and is convention speech [in 2016] warranted the attention it received.
Bottom line, come 2024 Don Jr could well be on the ticket.
Nikki Haley also made the list, at 26 percent. Eric Trump was not on the list,
for some reason. Neither was Tiffany, who is constitutionally too young, but is
at least in law school. Pick Tiffany! She knows law!
Axios did include Marco Rubio, Ron DeSantis, and Rick Scott as options, though
only Rubio cracked 10 percent. Axios did not put Ted Cruz on the list, not that
itll stop him from publicly embarrassing himself again.
Indeed, the Axios poll paints a bleak future picture, one full of Trumps in the
Oval Office forever, with or without Tiffany. But there is good news! Theres no
way were making it to 2024.
