Poll: Majority of GOP voters still favor Trump for 2024
A new Politico-Morning Consult poll shows that, if the 2024 GOP presidential primaries were held today, a majority of Republican voters would choose former President Donald Trump as their party’s nominee.
The early poll was published three days after the Senate acquitted Trump on the single charge of inciting the January 6 Capitol insurrection in the most bipartisan impeachment trial vote, with 57 Republicans joining Democrats to convict the former president. If he had been convicted, Trump would have been barred from holding public office ever again.
According to the poll, 53% of Republican voters stated that they would vote for the former commander-in-chief which is more than all the other candidates’ support combined. In second place is former Vice President Mike Pence with 12%, and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley and Donald Trump Jr.—President Trump’s eldest son—tying each other for third with 6%.
There were some other GOP contenders in the poll but they all scored low. The GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee, current Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, who voted to convict Trump twice, received 4%. Below him is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who helped lead the effort to overturn the states’ Electoral College votes on January 6, got 3%. Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, another senator who helped lead the effort, was grouped in with a list of names getting starkly lower than that.
While the poll found that 58% of Americans thought that Trump was right to be impeached, 51% said that they believed he should have been convicted. At the same time, 34% of Americans said that they approved of the former president, whereas 63% said that they disapproved of him.
On the other hand, President Joe Biden received a 62% approval rating of his job thus far, the poll says.

In a Las Vegas suburb, a family’s experience has put them into the realm of the unexplained. What started as a crashed object in their backyard and sightings of “non-human” beings has now unveiled a captivating connection to two historic UFO incidents—Trinity and Rendlesham Forest.

Body cam footage from one of the responding police officers displays the spectacle. As reports flooded in from across eastern California, Nevada, and Utah, the American Meteor Society took note, hinting at a spectacle that defied easy explanation.

Responding to the call, two police officers were dispatched to investigate the strange occurrence. The body camera footage obtained from both officers captured their initial reactions, reflecting a mix of nerves and intrigue.
Conversations between officers and witnesses revealed astonishing claims, with one witness describing a “big creature” standing around 10 feet tall.
While one officer proceeded to inspect the backyard, the video footage from his body camera was redacted by Metro police due to privacy concerns, according to reports. Witnesses conveyed their belief in the sighting, despite expressing skepticism before. Simultaneously, another witness informed the police about an SUV circling the area, potentially adding another layer of mystery to the incident, according to reports.
But this was just the beginning.
As the incident unfolded, an web of connections emerged, drawing parallels to historical UFO encounters that have perplexed and fascinated humanity for decades. Among these, the Trinity Incident stands as a testament to the enduring mystery surrounding UFO phenomena.
The Trinity Incident, which transpired in, July 1945, was set against the backdrop of the world’s first atomic bomb test in New Mexico. Witnesses, present during the event, reported a peculiar sighting, a UFO defying the laws of physics, hovering near the blast. The incident became covered in secrecy due to its connection to the classified Manhattan Project. This led to the rise of speculation about extraterrestrial involvement and their interest in our technological advancements.
Fast forward to December 1980, when another chapter in UFO history was written, Rendlesham Forest, an event that unfolded near the RAF Woodbridge base in Suffolk, England. Military personnel stationed there encountered inexplicable lights and an otherworldly craft nestled amidst the forest. The Rendlesham Forest incident remains one of the most compelling UFO cases on record, captivating the world with its documented evidence, eyewitness testimonies, and subsequent investigations.
Now, as the Las Vegas incident captures global attention, trending on Twitter, its connection to these historical encounters become apparent. The connections are astonishing, a crashed object, sightings of strange beings upwards of 10 feet tall, and eyewitnesses who stand by their claims, just as those who witnessed the Trinity Incident and the events in Rendlesham Forest did.
What does this all mean?
In this connection of past and present, the Las Vegas backyard encounter serves as a gateway into the world of UFOs. It calls the worlds to explore the uncharted territories of the unknown, where the boundaries of our understanding are challenged.
As speculation continues to surround this perplexing event, the encounters with unidentified phenomena and the mention of “big creatures” with large gazing eyes, in a suburban backyard have left the community and investigators perplexed. The quest for answers in this unusual case remains ongoing, as locals ponder the possibility of an otherworldly presence.
