Acknowledging that "a lot can happen between now and 2024," U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said that he believes Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee in the next presidential election if he decides to run again.

"I look at the polls, and the polls show that among the names being floated as potential contenders in 2024, if you put President Trump in there among Republicans, he wins in a landslide," Romney said in an interview.

Romney, who did not vote for Trump in either 2016 or 2020, said his anticipation of a Trump nomination in 2024 did not mean it was his preference or that he would support the former president.

"I would not be voting for President Trump again," Romney made clear. "I haven't voted for him in the past. And I would probably be getting behind somebody who I thought more represented the tiny wing of the Republican Party that I represent."

Trump has remained coy about his future political plans, merely saying that he sees "a lot of great polls out there." He is scheduled to give his first post-presidency speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference this Sunday where he will reportedly reassert himself as the leader of the Republican Party going forward.
