Former US President Donald Trump has the idea set to return to the White House in 2024, with that goal, his team is working to recover the five states that decided to change color and vote for Joe Biden in 2020, prompting the Democrat to occupy the Oval Room.
The five states – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – gathered a total of 73 electoral votes in 2020, enough to produce a decisive Electoral College victory for Biden.
Since then, Trump has held four rallies, endorsed dozens of candidates and played a key role in setting up electoral contests that could place his allies in top positions in those states by 2024.
The mogul’s campaign team recently conducted a survey to analyze what a face-to-face confrontation between Trump and Biden in those five states would look like today.
These are states that, in the November 2020 elections, decided in favor of the Democrat by less than 3 percentage points.
According to the poll, the former president now led Biden in Arizona by 8 percentage points, Georgia by 3 points, Michigan by 12 points, Pennsylvania by 6 points and Wisconsin by 10 points.
A notable change less than a year after Biden’s inauguration.
The poll numbers send a message to those who think Trump’s grip on the Republican Party is loosening, said Tony Fabrizio, one of the top Republican pollsters who did fieldwork for the super PAC. “Make America Great Again, Again!”
“Poll after poll clearly shows that former President Donald Trump is still the 100-pound gorilla in the Republican Party and would be its nominee for 2024 if he ran,” said Fabrizio.
“This new data clearly shows that voters today in these five key states would be happy to return Trump to the White House and send Biden to pack,” he added.
In another sign that Trump is preparing to launch a candidacy for the White House is that his super PAC will carry out its largest fundraiser planned to date on December 2, when the country’s top Republican donors are expected to join. meet at their Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.
The former president’s other political action committee, “Save America,” recently hired Lynne Patton, a longtime aide to Trump, to help him build political coalitions.
The magnate’s advisers hope that he will decide to announce his presidential candidacy after the legislative elections in November 2022.
A spokesman for Trump’s political committees clarified that the former president is now focused on the midterm elections.
Biden has also said publicly that he plans to run for reelection.
His backing super PAC, “Unite The Country,” is similarly gearing up in the five states the Trump campaign has focused on.
