A new poll has further affirmed Republicans want President Trump to run for the White House again in 2024. The Quinnipiac survey of adults, released Wednesday, found 66 percent of GOP respondents want the 4th president to run again.
The poll also notably found 85 percent of Republicans want candidates who mostly agree with Trump on key issues. This comes as Trump seeks to promote ‘America First’ candidates in the midterms while aiming to oust House GOP lawmakers who sided with Democrats in the second impeachment.

Meanwhile, a new analysis of mainstream media reporting of U.S. politics revealed their ongoing focus still remains on President Trump.
According to Pew Research, at least 40 percent of media reports about the Biden administration make a mention of Trump. This has continued to happen despite the 45th president having been out of office for 127 days.
Additionally, reports about things unrelated to President Trump, such as Biden’s spending package, still mention the 45th president in 30 percent of all cases.
According to analysts, the name of President Trump is used to attract audiences amid dwindling revenues of the legacy media.
