We’re still 9 months away from the 2020 presidential election but in a Survey Monkey poll for Axios, Republicans are already being asked who they would choose as their next president in 2024.
According to the survey of 1,854 adults who lean Republican, Vice President Mike Pence tops the 2024 list, and Don Jr. is second.
Don Jr. was the top choice among young voters, while Pence was the clear preference for older voters.
Mike Pence tops the list with Donald Trump Jr., former governor and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Trump’s oldest daughter, Ivanka taking the 4th place spot.
Why it matters: An early poll like this is largely a measure of name ID. But it’s also a vivid illustration of just how strong Trump’s brand is with the GOP.
The big picture: Don Jr. has emerged as one of the most prominent defenders of his dad, frequently going after the left on Twitter, where he has 4.2 million followers, and serving as a popular warm-up act for presidential rallies.
His book — “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us,” released in November — reached No. 1 on the N.Y. Times nonfiction bestseller list.
In October, at a rally in San Antonio for president Trump’s re-election, the crowd chanted “2024!” as Don Jr. spoke.
Ivanka Trump’s work within the administration would be a selling point if she wanted to carry on the Trump legacy.
Her title is “Advisor to the President,” with a portfolio that includes education and economic empowerment of women and families, plus job creation and economic growth through workforce development, skills training, and entrepreneurship.
