Despite the desperate attempts of Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney to get the GOP to “move on” from Donald Trump, the former president is surging in the polls and is likely to become the party’s nominee in 2024. Recent polls show Trump ahead of a potential rematch against President Joe Biden, with 47 percent approval from respondents, surpassing Sleepy Joe’s approval rating of 40 percent. The Harvard-Harris poll also indicates Trump is maintaining a formidable presence despite legal challenges and is enjoying a remarkable surge in popularity.
Romney, however, remains steadfast in his opposition to Trump, telling reporters he “won’t be supporting President Trump” and that “it’s time for us to recognize that the great majority of those who’ve worked with him is right and he’s wrong.” Despite his remarks, the polls suggest a potential path to victory for Trump and a dead heat between Biden and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has not yet declared his candidacy but is expected to as early as this week.
It is clear that the American people are rejecting Biden’s policies and lack of confidence in his ability to manage the country’s financial well-being. Half of respondents reported that their finances had worsened during Biden’s presidency, and only 21 percent expressed confidence in avoiding a potential recession. With these numbers in mind, it is no wonder why Romney is so desperate to get the GOP to move on from Trump.

However, it appears that the American people are not ready to let go of the former president yet. Despite Romney’s pleas, Trump continues to surge in the polls and remains a formidable presence in the 2024 presidential election. It is clear that the American people are not ready to give up on Trump just yet, and it will be interesting to see how this race shakes out over the next few months.
