A new poll is giving us an early look into the 2024 election.
The Morning Consult and Politico surveyed close to 600 Republicans and asked them who they would nominate for the 2024 GOP nomination.
With no surprise, the majority of those who were surveyed cast their votes towards President Trump who ended up leading the poll with 42% of the votes.
Mike Pence came in second with 16% of the votes.
Here were the complete results:
President Trump received a whopping 42% of the votes
Mike Pence received 16%
Donald Trump Jr. managed to get 6%
Sen. Ted Cruz also received 6%
Mitt Romney came in with 6% too
Nikki Haley received 5%

Forbes Covered the story and had these details to add:
A new Politico/Morning Consult poll finds—though the president still has the highest support of anyone in his party—as Trump has seen support even among his own base erode in the wake of his supporters’ Capitol attack.
42% of Republicans said they would vote for Trump in the 2024 presidential primaries in a poll conducted Jan. 8-11, after the attack on the Capitol.
That percentage is down from 54% of Republicans who said they would vote for Trump when the question was asked Nov. 21-23.
Trump is still ahead of other potential challengers: 16% of Republicans said they would vote for Vice President Mike Pence, 6% said they would vote for Donald Trump, Jr., 6% said they would vote for Sen. Ted Cruz, 5% said they would vote for former Gov. Nikki Haley and 6% said they would vote for Sen. Mitt Romney.
42 per cent of Republicans would still vote for Trump in 2024, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll published today. https://t.co/qVmtt38pNS

According to Morning Consult’s Poll here are other notable Republicans that received votes:
Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri, who along with Cruz led the effort on the Senate side of the Capitol to reject the Electoral College vote tallies certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, was the first choice for just 1 percent of GOP voters, unchanged from the poll conducted late last year. He finds himself near the bottom of the field, along with the following potential candidates: Sens. Tim Scott of South Carolina and Marco Rubio of Florida and Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota, at 2 percent each; Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas at 1 percent; and Sen. Rick Scott of Florida and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, at 0 percent.
