President Trump is rallying Republicans and conservatives around the nation in the final days before the critical midterm elections on November 8. He’s also turning up the heat on speculation that is getting closer to making a public declaration that he will make another White House run in 2024.
He came very close to making it official at Thursday night’s Save America rally held in Sioux City, Iowa.
President Trump, at his rally in Iowa, made the strongest statement yet about his running again: “I will very, very, very probably do it again!” #saveamerica pic.twitter.com/3XhQp04tV7

Trump told the raucous crowd: “In order to make our country successful and safe and glorious, I will very, very, very, probably do it again, OK?”
At recent rallies, he has not been as forceful, saying more equivocally, “We may have to do it again,” and “I probably will have to do it again.”
On Thursday, he prefaced his “very probably” declaration with his usual statement that he ran twice and won twice, doing much better the second time by getting millions more votes in 2020 than in 2016. He also noted that he received more votes in 2020 than any sitting president in U.S. history.
Thursday’s rally was in support of Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Gov. Kim Reynolds (R), both of whom are running for re-election. The rally was also in support of Trump-endorsed Brenna Bird, who is running for Iowa attorney general.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) spoke before Trump on Thursday and promised the crowd that if the GOP retakes control of the House after Tuesday’s elections they will impeach Joe Biden.
Trump’s next rally will be in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, on Saturday evening. He will then travel to Miami, Florida, for another Save America rally. On Monday, he will appear in Dayton, Ohio, for a final rally just before Election Day.
Trump will fire up the Republican base in Ohio on behalf of Senate candidate J.D. Vance and in Pennsylvania for Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is running for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA).
Rasmussen Reports published a poll on Friday morning that shows Republicans hold a five percentage point lead over Democrats in the generic Congressional survey. The poll shows that 48% of likely American voters would vote for the generic Republican candidate and 43% would favor the generic Democrat. Only 3% said they would choose a third-party candidate, and 6% said they are undecided.
