President Trump proceeds to hold a powerful job approval rating, with 48%.
And to most Americans, 52%, major media outlets in the U.S. have been biased and unethical in their coverage of Trump, who is in the midst of a tough legal battle on many fronts to challenge the outcomes of the recent presidential election.
Don Jr., the president’s eldest son and the most politically active of the President's children has seemingly liked the talk of a 2024 bid.
In October, he posted a picture of himself standing in front of a “Don Jr. 2024” sign on Twitter, writing that “this will make lib heads explode.”
Ivanka Trump, the President’s daughter, has been also tipped as possibly taking up where her father left off.
"There will be many who attempt to take the mantle of Trumpism," Seth Weathers, a Republican tactician who beforehand worked as the Georgia state director for Trump's 2016 campaign, explained.
Trump Jr. is loved by the president's base, having regularly campaigned as a surrogate while promoting a similar outlook to his father. He further made an announcement in cheek hint at a future run for president with a social media post earlier this year, a picture of him posing by a "Don Jr. 2024" banner.
Ivanka has meanwhile been one of her father's most intimate confidants, helping as an adviser during his White House tenure with her husband Jared Kushner as he himself forged a strong connection with the president as an adviser.
But despite their respective pedigrees and last name, they both are relatively low in an aspect where all the president's potential replacements are doomed to: they are just not him.
"However the Republican Party evolves after Trump, it's almost sure to include important Trumpian elements. Qualities most likely to stick include a populist message, anti-establishment flair, and a penchant for drumming up the base," Thomas Gift, a lecturer in political science and founding director of the Centre on U.S. Politics at University College London, explained.
John Owens, a professor of United States government and politics in the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster, underlined that Trump's vote tally revealed Trumpisms potential to carry on despite the election result. He further suggested the GOP has also molded to Trump's form.
"What was formerly the Republican Party has been the Trump Party for a few years now," Owens said.
A poll, summed up by McLaughlin & Associates between Nov. 21 and 23, surveyed 1,000 likely general election voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
