Donald Trump received good news about his chances of a 2024 political comeback as his team's political strategy appears to be paying off.
"As Donald Trump builds out a presidential-campaign-in-waiting, his team is focusing on an electoral strategy that relies on recapturing the five states that flipped to Joe Biden in 2020," Politico reported Tuesday. "The five states — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — delivered 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 shaping contests that could put his allies in top offices in those states in 2024."
GOP pollster Tony Fabrizio conducted a new poll for Trump's super PAC, "Make America Great Again, Again!"
"According to the poll, a memo of which was obtained by Politico, the former president 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," the publication reported. "For months, Trump has been building a turnkey operation in case he decides to announce a presidential bid. Advisers expect him to do so after the midterms if Republicans capture at least one chamber of Congress. The poll from Fabrizio will only be more encouragement for Trump, according to those who know the former president's thinking."
The survey was conducted Nov. 11-16, with around 600 likely 2024 voters polled in each of the five states.
"In another sign that Trump is gearing up for a White House bid, his super PAC is holding its biggest planned fundraiser to date on Dec. 2, when the nation's top Republican donors are expected to gather at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla. The super PAC is also expanding its board of directors to include Trump's former acting national intelligence director Ric Grenell and his former acting attorney general, Matt Whitaker," Politico reported. "They will serve alongside former Florida state Attorney General Pam Bondi, who defended Trump in his first impeachment trial."
