Mike Pence, Trump’s somewhat-disgraced former Vice President, could make a valiant effort to return to the political stage in 2024.
There’s just one problem—most polling shows he has virtually no support among American voters.
And if you’ve talked to diehard Trump supporters, you know they would almost rather vote for a Democrat than vote for Mike Pence in a presidential election.
In their eyes, Pence betrayed the will of the people in an election fraught with fraud that the courts refused to examine for months leading up to Inauguration Day. In a way, they blame him for Joe Biden becoming president.
And while polls are not exactly the most trustworthy indicator of what voters will do in an election, they are still interesting to consider in what could potentially happen.
A Harvard CAPS-Harris survey, released exclusively to The Hill on Monday, shows that in a Trump-less field of 2024 contenders, Mike Pence would take most Republican votes in the next presidential election.
Coming in 12 percent ahead of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a conservative favorite, Pence would win the hypothetical matchup.
The shocking poll, which is difficult to imagine is accurate, has Pence sweeping victory with 32 percent, DeSantis with 20 percent, and Ted Cruz in third place with 14 percent support.
However, it’s important to remember that this hypothetical only applies if former President Donald Trump does not run again. When he is included in the poll, Trump wins by a landslide over any other potential challengers.
The survey comes amid rumors that the former vice president is making moves in preparation of a 2024 bid for the White House.
Since leaving office, Pence has been active in Republican circles. He’s headlined several important GOP events and even began fundraising over the summer.
Although he has not expressly stated he has plans to run for presidential office in 2024, Mike Pence could be on track to announce soon.
