President Trump might very well be set to reclaim the White House in the 2024 presidential election.
A report says it helps that Trump has his practically “cult-like” following, a “war chest” of $115 million in donations, and is viewed positively by 82% of Republican voters.
‘Cult-Like Following’ in Republican Base
Trump “really” could be on his way to win back the White House, says a lengthy report by the Daily Mail on Sunday. This comes just as Trump held a massive campaign-style rally there on Saturday night.
One of those quoted is Larry Sabato, a professor of politics, who says Trump enjoys a “cult status” among a majority of GOP voters.
Trump has been hinting strongly at running for the presidency again in 2024. However, he also made it clear he isn’t formalizing his candidacy.
Doing so would put him at a disadvantage since campaign rules would kick in with respect to both fundraising and media appearances.
According to the Daily Mail report, Saturday night’s rally in Florence, Arizona became “the clearest sign yet” that Trump will run in 2024.

‘Save America’ Instead of MAGA
The report points out that Trump has a new slogan, which would be “Save America.”
It is notable that the “Save America” slogan was “emblazoned” on the president’s podium during the Arizona rally; it was also on many of the banners brought by his supporters.
An anonymous Republican pundit is quoted as saying that “Save America” is now replacing “Make America Great Again,” which was the highly successful motto of the Trump campaign back in 2016.

Another unnamed “prominent Republican strategist” is quoted as saying even though “everyone” considered Trump to be politically “finished,” that hasn’t been the case since “his base stuck with him.”
He adds that Trump’s supporters today are “more rabidly pro-Donald” than they have ever been.
The same source adds that Trump emerged as “the king-maker” of the Republican Party, whether he runs in 2024 or not, but everyone thinks he will run.
Against this backdrop, three out of the ten Republican House members who voted to impeach Trump are retiring from politics.
The report further points out the results from a recent YouGov poll, which shows 82% of Republican voters view Trump either “very favorably” or “somewhat favorably.” Likewise, 51% already want Trump to become the 2024 nominee of the GOP.
That is contrasted with Joe “Empty Shelves” Biden’s terrible performance and collapsing ratings. These ratings declined to just 33% in the latest survey of left-leaning pollster Quinnipiac University.
The report also notes Trump already managed to attract a whopping $115 million in donations through his website, putting together a massive election “war chest”.
The report concludes that Trump somehow succeeded in still holding an “enormous sway in America’s heartland” even though he was censored by Big Tech from top social media sites, such as Twitter and Facebook.
