Trump claims he wouldn’t pick any of the GOP rivals as VP

Former President Donald Trump has made it clear that none of his GOP rivals would be his pick for Vice President.

In a recent rally in Michigan, Trump expressed his views on the Republican contenders for the upcoming elections.

He seemed to dismiss the idea of any of them being suitable for a Vice Presidential role in a potential 2024 administration.

During the rally, Trump addressed the crowd, emphasizing the competitive nature of the race.

He remarked, "We’re competing with the job candidates, they’re all running for a job. No, they’re all job candidates." He further added that these candidates are so eager that they would settle for any position, even suggesting some might be vying for a VP role.

Who stood on the debate stage?

That very night, seven GOP candidates took to the stage at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, Fox News reported.

The lineup included North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former Vice President Mike Pence, biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina.

Trump, however, seemed unimpressed by the roster. He questioned the crowd, "Does anybody see the VP in the group? I don’t think so."

Recent polls have shown Trump's dominance in the GOP. A Fox News poll indicated that 60% of Republican primary voters support Trump for the GOP nomination. This is a significant increase from 53% in a previous survey conducted in August.

Other GOP candidates' standings

Following Trump in the polls, Gov. Ron DeSantis secured 13% support, while Vivek Ramaswamy received 11%. Nikki Haley garnered 5%, and both Pence and Scott stood at 3%. Chris Christie had a mere 2%, with other GOP candidates trailing with less than 1%.

It's evident that Trump's influence in the Republican Party remains strong. His remarks at the Michigan rally further solidify his position as a dominant figure within the GOP.

Interestingly, a recent Washington Post/ABC poll revealed that if the 2024 presidential election were held today, Trump would lead President Biden by 10 points. The poll suggested Trump would secure 52% of the votes, while Biden would get 42%.

Biden's approval ratings dip

President Biden's current approval ratings are not in his favor. The same poll showed his approval rating at a concerning 37%. On the flip side, 56% of the respondents actively disapproved of his presidency.

These numbers, coupled with Trump's remarks, paint a picture of a political landscape that remains as divided and polarized as ever.

Trump's comments at the Michigan rally are a testament to his confidence and the influence he continues to wield within the Republican Party. His ability to rally his base and dominate the polls is a clear indication of his political prowess.

Conclusion: Trump's unwavering influence

As the 2024 elections approach, Trump's influence within the GOP is undeniable. His recent remarks and the subsequent poll numbers reflect his stronghold on the party and its supporters.

  • Trump dismisses the idea of any GOP rival being suitable for VP.
