Some interesting findings ...

"Overall, do you approve or disapprove of the actions taken by the people who forced their way into the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021?"

Somewhat disapprove + Strongly disapprove - 83%



"Thinking about the people who forced their way into the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. Would you describe their actions as..."

"A protest that went too far" got the highest percentage of "Yes" votes.
Yes - 76%
No - 24%

"Yes" voters were 69% Democrats, 80% Independents, and 80% Republicans. (Respondents were given multiple choices, and they could vote for more than one. You may use the link to see the complete breakdown of this question.)



"What would you like to see Donald Trump do right now?"

Not seek the Presidency again at all . . . 62%

Democrats - 87%
Independents - 66%
Republicans - 24%

*If these results are a good representation of the country, and I believe they are, Trump has absolutely no path to victory in 2024.

Feel free to look at the other questions in the poll (there were many) and the breakdowns of who voted for what. I look forward to your comments.

If they nominate him, they're going to learn the hard way. They will waste their chance and suffer a landslide defeat.
He's very unpopular, so it would be a huge risk having him as the presidential candidate.

He lost the popular vote in 2016.

He lost the popular vote in 2020, by an even bigger margin.

He never once received an approval rating above 50%.

Sure, it all hinges on the electoral college tally, but his unpopularity would make it very hard for him to win.

I'd like to see him run and be beaten again though - it would be priceless watching his tantrum.

I guess so, if I were not an American. As an American, all I want is what's best for my country. Trump running is not that.

Not good for the world.

But who else do the Republicans have?
I think there are some potential candidates out there that would have a shot at beating whoever the Democrats nominate.

Mike Pence - Former VP, conservative, gentlemanly and well-spoken.
Nikki Haley - Former Governor, Former U.N. Ambassador, articulate, experienced, intelligent, conservative.

John Kasich - Former Representative in the House, former Governor of Ohio, ran for President against Trump in 2016, moderate.
Sen. Ben Sasse - Currently a senator from Nebraska. Well spoken, gentlemanly, articulate and intelligent, moderate. Sasse, however, has not shown any interest in running for President, but I think he would be a good one. I generally dislike when someone posts a video instead of telling their opinion, but if you want to see the intellect and perspective of Ben Sasse, watch him explain the roles of the branches of government during the Kavanaugh hearings.


A political novice, Glenn Youngkin, just got elected to be the Governor of Virginia. My initial impression of him is very positive. I wouldn't mind seeing him make a run someday.

Ben Carson - A brain surgeon, he ran for the Republican nomination in 2016. He served as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under Trump. Conservative and very gentlemanly. This is a man that you may disagree with all day long on policy issues, but he is so doggone nice that you just can't dislike him.

In my less than humble opinion, any of these people would have a shot in 2024, especially with the train wreck we have right now in the White House.
