Former President Trump is reportedly on the brink of facing charges related to a hush money payment during the 2016 campaign, throwing a wrench into the nascent 2024 GOP presidential primary. “That said, it’s hard to see how this is a positive for Trump,” added Conant, who now works with Firehouse Strategies. And national polls still largely show Trump garnering the most support among declared and potential 2024 presidential candidates, with only Florida Gov. But there are signs the party may look to move past Trump even if he won’t bow out himself. But the poll also showed that Trump’s grip on the party may not be as iron-clad as it once was.
