Donald Trump and Mike Pence no longer have a working relationship.
In fact, the two are now 2024 rivals.
And now Donald Trump was asked to do one thing for Mike Pence that no one saw coming.
Kellyanne Conway managed Donald Trump’s victorious 2016 presidential election.
And in Conway’s days as a political consultant Conway worked for Mike Pence.
On The Wall Street Journal’s “Free Expression” podcast Conway stated her belief that if Donald Trump passes on a 2024 campaign Trump should endorse his former Vice President Mike Pence.
“The Trump/Pence accomplishments are remarkable, and we can go through them. People don’t seem to want to, but if he runs for president, he’ll be talking about that. If Mike Pence runs for president instead of Donald Trump, if Donald Trump says no, he’ll be talking about the Trump-Pence accomplishments,” Conway stated.
Conway praised the work Trump and Pence did together and said Trump should think “very deeply about supporting his vice president, because they were a magical, magnificent, marvelous team.”
But Conway strayed into fiction claiming that Pence was besting all other non-Trump Republicans in potential 2024 polls.
“He’s beating all other Republican candidates among Republican primary voters,” Conway falsely claimed.
That is not true as the polling data shows that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis finishes second to Trump in 2024 GOP presidential primary polling.
The latest Echelon Insights poll found DeSantis leading Pence 35 to 15 percent if Donald Trump does not run for president.
In a poll of a larger field without the former President, Florida’s Governor shined again. DeSantis’ 35% support secured the Florida Governor a strong first place, and more support than the next four potential candidates combined.
Pence’s 15% was good for a distant second place. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas drew 7% support, good for third place, but essentially tied with former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley at 6% and Donald Trump Jr., who drew 5% support.
Echelon also tested DeSantis against Pence head-to-head and DeSantis led Pence by a double-digit margin.
DeSantis performed better still against former Vice President Pence in a hypothetical faceoff. The poll found 51% of those surveyed preferred the Florida Governor, while just 34% chose Pence.
There is no chance Donald Trump will endorse Mike Pence for president in 2024.
When asked about future leaders in the GOP Trump never mentioned Mike Pence’s name.
That’s because Trump thinks that Pence let him down on January 6 by not rejecting the official Electoral College results.
Pence explained that the Constitution did not grant him that authority, but Trump viewed Pence as disloyal.
And should Donald Trump not run in 2024 it is more likely that Trump will work to defeat Mike Pence than support Pence.
