Nearly 80 percent of Republicans want former President Donald Trump to run for office in 2024, according to a new poll. 

Republicans by a 78 percent to 16 percent margin want Trump to mount a White House bid in 2024, an increase of 13 percentage points since May, a Quinnipiac University National Poll shows

On the other side, 94 percent of Democrats and 58 percent of independents say the former president should sit out the election. 

“While a majority of Americans say, ‘Been there, done that’ about Trump, and half feel he has damaged the underpinnings of democracy, support for the former president within the GOP has grown,” Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy said.

Speaking at the State Fairground in Des Moines earlier this month, the former president unveiled a campaign slogan — “Make America Great Again – Again” — and blasted President Biden and the Democrats for pushing the country to the “brink of ruin.”

“We’re going to take America back,” he said during the 90-minute speech in Iowa, a state where he bested Biden in 2020 by a 53 percent to 45 percent margin.

Trump’s approval ratings in the Hawkeye State are higher than when he was in the White House — 53 percent to 48 percent.

The survey also showed Biden and Trump with deep support among the party faithful — with 80 percent of Republicans backing Trump and 87 percent of Democrats supporting Biden.
