President Donald Trump’s popularity among registered republicans is still at an all-time high.
This is partly due to the failures of failed republican politicians such as Mitt Romney.
Interestingly enough, even Romney recognizes that if Donald Trump were to run again in 2024, Trump would likely win the GOP nomination in a landslide.
Romney said this in a recent interview:

“I don’t know if he’ll run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he will win the nomination.”
“I look at the polls, and the polls show that among the names being floated as potential contenders in 2024, if you put President Trump in there among Republicans, he wins in a landslide.”
As much disdain as Romney has for President Trump, even he recognizes that the former president represents the will of most republicans, over 74 million Americans in fact.
The Washington Examiner with more on Romney's admission:
Utah Sen. Mitt Romney might be the only Republican to vote to convict former President Donald Trump in both of his impeachment trials, but he still said the former commander in chief could win another presidential primary.
Romney, the junior U.S. senator from Utah, said on Tuesday he's "pretty sure" Trump would win the 2024 GOP presidential primary if he ran for a third time.
“Will President Trump continue to play a role in my party? I’m sure he will, he has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party," the 2012 Republican presidential nominee said. "I don’t know about his family members, whether they intend to do that. But I expect he will continue playing a role. I don’t know if he’ll run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he will win the nomination.”
“A lot can happen between now and 2024, and I’m not great at predicting," Romney said at a New York Times DealBook virtual event. "I look at the polls, and the polls show that among the names being floated as potential contenders in 2024, if you put President Trump in there among Republicans, he wins in a landslide."
More than half, 53.5%, of Trump supporters responded in a USA Today/Suffolk Poll released Tuesday that they feel more loyalty to the former president than they do to the party he led for four years. Only a third of the 1,000 respondents said their loyalty is to the party as opposed to Trump himself.
Fox News has more on Trump's potential role going forward to 2024:
Shortly after the November election, Romney told Meet the Press, "I believe the great majority of people who voted for Donald Trump want to make sure that his principles and his policies are pursued. So yeah, he’s not disappearing by any means. He’s the 900 pound gorilla when it comes to the Republican party."
The Utah senator is one of Trump’s more vocal critics in the party and was the only GOP senator to vote to convict Trump in both of his impeachments.
Trump will make his first major speech since leaving office at the conservative CPAC conference this weekend and has yet to say whether he plans to run in 2024.
During his speech, Trump plans to claim his place as the "presumptive 2024 nominee," and advisers are expected to meet with him at Mar-a-Lago this week to help him decide his next political move, Axios reported, citing sources.
"There’s no question he’ll play a pivotal role in politics for a long time to come," Eric Trump told Fox & Friends this week. He added there are "75, 80 million people who would follow" his father "to the end of the Earth" and love him because they "love what he stands for."
Trump will likely also support primary challengers to Republicans in the midterms who voted for his impeachment, he said.
Politicians, media members, and American citizens are very aware of President Trump's popularity.
Leftists fear him, and would do anything to stop him from running again in 2024.
Unfortunately for them, the Trump Train doesn't appear to be derailed just yet.
