At the conference, Trump hinted at a 2024 run, saying “now we may just have to do it again” to a roaring applause.

“If I stayed home, if I announced that I was not going to run for office, the persecution of Donald Trump would immediately stop,” Trump remarked. “But that’s what they want me to do. And you know what? There’s no chance I do that.”

When asked who would be toughest to beat in a general election for Republicans, respondents saw California Gov. Gavin Newsom as the biggest threat at 30.3% and former First Lady Michelle Obama at 13.6%. 7.2% said “none.”
