Former President Donald Trump has been testing the waters in the five states that supposedly turned blue late in the process of the 2020 election, Politico reported.
Trump has been active in Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Wisconsin, hosting rallies, endorsing candidates and and pulling strings to put his allies in position to help him with a possible 2024 run.
A Trump vs. Biden poll was also released into the five swing states.
“According to the poll,” the Politico article stated, “the former president led Biden in Arizona by 8 percentage points, Georgia by 3 points, Michigan by 12 points, Pennsylvania by 6 points and Wisconsin by 10 points.”
“Poll after poll clearly demonstrates that former President Donald Trump is still the 800-pound gorilla in the GOP and would be its 2024 nominee should he run,” said Tony Fabrizio, a top GOP pollster who ran the polls for the Trump team. “This new data clearly shows that today the voters in these five key states would be happy to return Trump to the White House and send Biden packing.”
Arguably, the states never stayed in their support. All have been to varying degrees awash in allegations or probes concerning vote fraud. Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, have both undertaken investigations that they claimed could lead to independent audits similar to the one that Arizona conducted in Maricopa County.
The legislatures in Georgia and Michigan also have called for probes, but those calls have fallen on deaf ears under complicit secretaries of state.
Trump on Tuesday also released an official memo concerning election fraud in the state of Arizona, directly asking Attorney General Mark Brnovich about the state of the investigation:
“Whatever happened to the Rigged and Stolen Arizona Presidential Election that is being investigated, or maybe the words should properly be ‘looked at,’ by Attorney General Mark Brnovich?,” the former president queried. “When will the legislature vote to decertify?”
While Trump has made no official statements about planning a run for the 2024 presidency, he has made many moves that indicate that is his intention.
A spokesperson for Trump’s political committees said he is currently focused on the midterm elections.
According to Politico, advisers expect him to announce his run after the midterms elections, contingent on GOP capture of at least one chamber of Congress.
