More than half of U.S. voters say they’re likely to vote for former President Donald Trump in next year’s election, and most do not really care who Trump picks as his running mate.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The survey finds that 53% of likely U.S. voters are likely to vote for Trump in the 2024 presidential election, including 38% who are very likely to vote for the former president.
Forty-three percent (43%) are unlikely to vote for Trump next year, including 34% who say it’s "not at all likely.
Among those who are at least somewhat likely to vote for Trump, 13% say they’d be more likely to vote for him if he chose a woman as his vice presidential running mate, while eight percent (8%) would be more likely to vote for Trump if he picked a black running mate.
Fifteen percent (15%) would be more likely to vote for Trump if he chose a non-politician as his running mate.
However, 57% of likely Trump voters say the choice of a vice-presidential candidate would not make much difference in their 2024 vote.
