A year before the 2024 presidential election, the American populace is already speculating about potential candidates. The conversation is buzzing with names like Trump, Biden, DeSantis, and others, each eliciting varied reactions from citizens.
Jamie, an American encountered on Broadway, the pulsating heart of Music City, voiced her prediction, “Trump and Biden, without a doubt.”
Meanwhile, Nick expressed his reservations about Florida’s Governor, Ron DeSantis, as the Republican candidate. He compared DeSantis to Trump, albeit a “more intelligent and therefore more frightening” version.
A recent survey by The New York Times and Siena College has indicated that Trump has an edge over Biden in five out of six key states, with the former President leading between 4 percent and 10 percent among registered voters in Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Bob, another participant in the heated discussion, stated, “Trump’s the one to watch. He might not be my personal cup of tea, but politically, he’s spot on.” Jeff echoed these sentiments, expressing his support for “Trump, the Don” while dismissing the potential impact of any Democratic contender.
George, a Trump enthusiast, pondered a potential running mate for the former President, suggesting former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard could be a strong ticket partner. Still, despite Trump’s substantial support among registered Republicans, some are hoping for a different party representative.
Joe voiced his preference for Nikki Haley, the former Governor of South Carolina. If forced to choose a Democrat, he’d lean towards Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
According to a CBS News/YouGov survey, 45 percent of likely voters believe they’d be better off financially with a Trump victory. In comparison, only 18 percent held the same view if Biden remained President. An overwhelming 75 percent felt the country was heading down the wrong path, as revealed by an ABC News/Ipsos survey.
In his critique of Biden, Nick stated, “I’m not thrilled, but he’s preferable to Trump.” Formerly from California, Pat predicted his state’s Governor, Gavin Newsom, could make the Democratic ticket. However, he warned of Newsom’s track record, accusing him of turning California into a “cesspool.” Despite this, Pat remained a steadfast Trump supporter.
