Nearly half of Republicans want former President Trump to run for office again in 2024, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center released Wednesday.

The survey, conducted Sept. 13-19, showed that 67 percent of the Republicans and Republican-leaning independents said “they would like to see Trump continue to be a major political figure for many years to come” and 44 percent would like to see him run for president again.

Twenty-two percent of those respondents would prefer to support a different candidate who held views that aligned with the beliefs of the former president.

About a third of Republicans, or 32 percent, said they would not like for Trump to maintain his status as a major political figure, according to the survey.

The percentage of people who would like for Trump to remain in the major political spotlight has increased by 10 points since a survey taken in the immediate aftermath of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.

The Pew poll follows a recent survey of Iowa residents that showed 53 percent approve of Trump, an important group to consider as the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses could be an important factor in Trump’s possible 2024 campaign.
