When former President Donald Trump left the White House a few years ago, most Democrat leaders hoped he would recede into the shadows.
But Trump has remained in the political spotlight, becoming even more vocal as the Biden administration faced crisis after crisis. And #45 has been teasing another run to the Oval Office for a long time.
In the meantime, “the power of Trump” in the Republican Party is undeniable.
Right-wing candidates looking to secure election victories definitely want Trump’s endorsement. At least, that’s what the statistics keep showing us — in 2022, Trump-backed candidates rarely lose.
His picks just keep winning all over the country, and in many different states. The message is clear: if you want the GOP’s nomination, get Trump’s support.
In just the past few weeks, the former POTUS has ran his impressive record to an all-time high, scoring election victories from California to New Jersey. The result is a statistic that Democrats shouldn’t ignore.
Sixteen Republican candidates backed by former President Donald J. Trump enjoyed sweeping election wins in California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, and South Dakota Tuesday night, putting Trump’s endorsement record at 116-7 in 2022.
Kristi Noem has done a great job as Governor of South Dakota.
She is strong on Borders, the Second Amendment, preserving land and Energy Dominance, Medical Freedom, and kept South Dakota open during COVID.
She fully supports our great Law Enforcement, Military, our wonderful Vets — and is a fighter for the incredible people of South Dakota.
The numbers really can’t be swept under the rug — at this point, it’s clear that Trump is on a tear.
Before the Tuesday primaries, Trump was 100-7; he just added another 16 wins to the total. He was perfect in Alabama, Texas, and Arkansas, and only lost significantly in Georgia (4 of Donald’s picks went down).
For a good span of time, Trump was undefeated with his picks, and he also went 55-0 in the Ohio and Indiana primaries.
While Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis appears to be gaining on Trump in 2024 presidential polls (and in some cases, he’s ahead), it still seems obvious that Trump remains an extremely influential figure in the GOP.
Even if he doesn’t run for President again, it’s likely that he’ll remain active in the Party, and will continue to flex his significant political muscle.
