Recent polls show that former President Donald Trump has a strong chance of winning the Republican Party's primary race. The big question, though, is who he will choose as his vice president. In a recent talk with Glenn Beck, a conservative media figure, Trump may have given a hint about who he might choose as his running mate.
Mr. Starnes also asked Trump if he saw anyone at the debate who might be good to be his running mate. https://t.co/Ezy14S9UjU
However, President Trump did not respond to the question.
Earlier this week, President Trump praised @VivekGRamaswamy when asked by talk show host…

Beck asked Trump if he would consider making Vivek Ramaswamy, an investor, his running mate. Trump said, "Well, I think he's great. Anyone who said I was the best president in a generation… "I can't help but like a guy like that." Trump then went on to say that Ramaswamy was smart, young, bright, and very smart.
In the Republican primary race, it looks like Ramaswamy has been making a name for himself. In a Morning Consult poll done between August 25 and August 27, 10% of potential Republican primary voters said they would vote for Ramaswamy. This put him in third place. Only Ron DeSantis (14%), who is also a Republican, and Trump himself (58%) were ahead of him.
Also, a separate Morning Consult poll found that 72% of GOP primary voters who watched the latest debate thought Ramaswamy did well. Comparatively, only 65% of people felt the same way about how DeSantis did his job, and only 64% of people felt the same way about how Nikki Haley did hers.
The fact that Ramaswamy did well in the debate and did well in the polls suggests that he could be a good candidate for vice president. If Trump chose him as his running mate, it could make Republican people more likely to vote for him. Ramaswamy is a good choice because he is energetic, talented, and has done well in the polls. Time will tell if Trump chooses him as his running mate for president, but it seems like an option worth thinking about.
It's clear that Trump has a lot of fans and is still the most powerful person in the Republican Party. His support is very important, and if Ramaswamy does become his running mate, it could be a big help for Trump's campaign. One of Trump's skills as a leader is that he knows how to find and work with talented people. The fact that Ramaswamy is moving up in the polls and doing well in the debates shows that he has what it takes to be a good vice president. This possible team could help the Republican Party win the upcoming primary race if they work together. Biden, on the other hand, hasn't been able to get as much support and excitement from people in his own party. It will be interesting to see how the Republican primary race goes and if Trump's support helps his preferred candidate win.
