The Morning Consult-Politico survey published Wednesday found 42 percent of Republicans say they would support Trump if he ran in 2024, a decrease of 13 percentage points from November. 

Trump’s job approval among Republican voters, which came in at 75 percent, is the lowest it has been in Morning Consult-Politico polling since August. 


Support for a potential presidential run by Vice President Pence, meanwhile, has trended slightly upward, standing at 16 percent. 

In the wake of pressure from Trump to overturn the election result, Pence last week refused, saying he did not have the "unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not."
