Skip to comments.Trump really could be on his way back to the White House: Ex-President's amassed a $115million election 'war chest', has a new slogan, and 82 per cent of Republicans will back him if he decides to run again in 2024

he affluent suburb of Paradise Valley in Arizona is a traditional Republican stronghold.
With multi-million-dollar homes dotting a desert filled with towering saguaro cactus plants, its residents enjoy a choice of more than half a dozen golf courses, discreet upmarket shopping centres and award-winning restaurants, all nestled against the spectacular backdrop of Camelback Mountain.
Donald Trump stormed to victory here in 2016.
Paradise Valley is part of Maricopa County, an area of 2.1 million voters which includes the city of Phoenix and its outlying areas and which has voted Republican for as long as anyone can remember.
Yet in 2020, Maricopa County delivered a bombshell when voters turned in droves against President Trump in favour of Democratic rival Joe Biden.
'It was seismic,' says life-long Republican Benny White, who unsuccessfully ran for local office and found himself being chased down driveways by furious residents branding him a 'Trumper'.
'People just turned against Trump. He became a visceral figure of hate. I was chased away. People were screaming abuse at me.'
Losing Maricopa County – and, subsequently, Arizona itself – proved fatal for Trump, who continues to insist the election was 'stolen' from him, a claim which has been roundly refuted and which his critics have dubbed the 'Big Lie'.
Yet today in Paradise Valley (population: 14,362), things are feeling rather different. The November 2020 election seems a long time ago. And for the former President, that could be very good news.
Many Paradise Valley voters regret switching their support to Biden. And when The Mail on Sunday visited last week, they said they'd now rather vote for Trump, should he choose to run again.

82 percent say now that they would support him. That number will only grow.
Don’t know if this is true but I’m hearing astronomical numbers of attendees at this rally in Arizona. I’m a little skeptical but I’m hearing 30,000 people showed up so I don’t know if it’s true... too early to tell.
40K is what I heard.
For 2024, like Bill once said "It's the economy, stupid" and Trump will be back in the White House.
Sounds easy enough, right? We'll see. Sometime Trump can be his worst enemy.
So, what’s the new slogan?
I thought that Jan. 6th destroyed him.
Trump didn’t lose Maricopa county, it was stolen from him, so this whole article is hogwash.
No, you butthurt RINOs are the problem. You and the soccer moms keep used car sales liars in business.
Karl Rove? Is that you?
So let's play it safe and go with a sure-fire RINO. What's Jeb! doing these days.
Read the comments in DM...interesting.
“I’ll take ‘Things That Never Happened’ for $500, Alex.”
“82 percent say now that they would support him. That number will only grow.”
Except for a few extremely deep thinkers on this site who are supremely concerned about Trump’s supposed baggage. They never explain what that baggage is.
“Trump didn’t lose Maricopa county, it was stolen from him, so this whole article is hogwash.”
Yes. The premise is, yes.
30-40k sounds pretty normal for a Trump rally.
Let’s welcome 2024 Trump back after abandoning his voters in the 2020 election, the J6 protesters and getting people killed by his Project Warp Speed.
All good but he needs to spend a lot more for his personal protection detail. The will try to kill him....
I certainly don’t recall Trump leaving office in disgrace.
