NEARLY three-fourths of Republicans are ready to vote President Donald Trump back into the White House in 2024, a new poll shows – even as half of Americans believe he “failed.”
If Donald Trump becomes the Republican presidential nominee in 2024, 71 percent of GOP members in a poll said they would vote for him[/caption]
Another 16 percent of Republicans said they would consider supporting Trump, and only 10 percent said they would not.
Those figures suggest that Trump has a stronghold on the GOP in a manner that no losing presidential nominee has had in modern history—but Americans in general disagree.
Regarding how history will judge Trump’s presidency, 50 percent of Americans said he is a failed president, according to the poll.
The remaining 16 percent said he would be judged as a fair president, 16 percent said a great president, 13 percent said a good president and 5 percent were undecided.

Trump scored markedly poorer than his predecessor, President Barack Obama, in the same poll after his second term.
Only 23 percent of Americans at the time predicted that history would see Obama as a failed president, while 50 percent said he would be viewed in a positive light, 32 percent called him a good president and 18 percent called him a great president.

The group of more than one-third of Americans who do not believe Biden was legitimately elected, includes 78 percent of Republicans.
By comparison, 96 percent of Democrats think that Biden was legitimately elected.
While most Republicans contest the fact that Biden legitimately won the election, there seems to be a small decline in GOP members denying the results.

An Economist/YouGov survey in mid-November found that 88 percent of Americans who voted for Trump thought that Biden did not legitimately win the election—much higher than the figure in the new poll.
Additionally, 79 percent of Trump supporters in the Economist/YouGov poll said Trump should not concede to Biden—but just 57 percent of registered Republicans in the USA Today/Suffolk University survey said Trump should concede.
The latest poll was conducted from Dec. 16 to 20 with 1,000 registered voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
