A new poll says that nearly three out of 10 Republicans believe Donald Trump will be reinstated as president this year.
The poll, published in Politico-Morning Consult, shows that 29 percent of GOP respondents believe Donald Trump will soon be president again.
According to The Hill, Trump has been telling his inner circle that he himself expects to be reinstated as president by August — just two months from now.
According to the poll, 59 percent of Republican voters said they wished to see Trump play a major part in the GOP. Many believe that he will run for president in 2024.
In an interview with Sean Hannity, Senator Lindsey Graham said Trump had grown important to the GOP. He said that Trump made inroads with minorities who feel heard by his America First agenda.
“If you don’t get that, you’re making the biggest mistake in the history of the Republican Party,” Graham said.
Trump himself has discussed rumors of another run for office in the media.
“As you know, it’s very early. But I think people are going to be very, very happy when I make a certain announcement,” Trump said in an interview with Candace Owens.
“You know for campaign finance reasons, you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing.”
Trump has recently relocated for the summer from his Florida club to his golf course in New Jersey. His team has planned to make appearances in rallies and to endorse different politicians for important GOP positions.
Despite these claims and Trump’s enormous presence within the GOP, the former president’s chances of getting “reinstated” to the presidency remains unlikely — and probably constitutionally impossible.
Yet the chatter that Trump could return to power soon through some unknown means is likely to continue, not least because the presidency shielded him from prosecution.
“I expect it to get more intense the more he is under investigation by the Manhattan district attorney and the state attorney general in New York and the threat of indictment over the coming months,” said New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who has closely followed the Trump presidency from the start.
The poll was conducted during the early days of June. A total of 1,990 registered voters provided their opinions. It has a 2 percent margin of error.
