Lindsey Graham, a key ally of the president, said he has spoken with officials in a number of key swing states about the election and ballot counting/Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger accused Graham Monday of pressuring him to find ways to exclude or invalidate legally cast absentee ballots and reverse Trump’s loss in the state, an accusation the South Carolina Republican called "ridiculous.

Despite Trump's defeat, his vote haul—higher than that of any sitting president—sees him placed to be an ongoing influence upon the GOP.

In recent Echelon Insights polling, Republican and Republican leaners were asked: "Thinking ahead to the next four years if Joe Biden becomes President, would you like to see Donald Trump continue to be the leading voice for Republicans, or do you think it's time for someone new to fill that role?"

More than half, 53 percent, of those asked said they wanted this leading voice to be Trump. Just under a third, 31 percent, said someone new.

Those surveyed were also posed the question: "If Joe Biden becomes President, which approach do you think Republicans should take in the next four years?"

The most common answer among GOP supporters and leaners was that Republicans should continue with Trump as leader of the party, with 39 percent backing this. The second highest supported response was that they should continue with Trump's policies but with "new leaders with a more disciplined personal style." Around a third, 33 percent, chose this option.

'You’ve got to have trust.' The strategy Joe Biden hopes will lead to agreement in a post-Trump era

  'You’ve got to have trust.' The strategy Joe Biden hopes will lead to agreement in a post-Trump era President-elect Biden hopes the reputation he has as a deal maker will help him push an agenda in Congress. But skepticism about that outcome is high.“John, are you saying air strikes would not help the people in Srebrenica right now? Is that what you're telling me?” Biden, then a Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said as he pressed McCain, the Arizona Republican who died in 2018.

The third response, which garnered the least selection, was that they should move from Trump and look to new leaders more akin to George W. Bush or Mitt Romney. Less than a fifth, 16 percent, said this.

In the same polling, the 465 Republican or GOP leaning respondents were also given a list of potential 2024 candidates and asked which they would consider supporting.

Trump topped the list on who most would support, with 52 percent stating they would back him. Vice President Mike Pence was second on the list, with 45 percent, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) third, with 32 percent.

Separate polling saw nearly half of 1,873 voters asked overall backing Trump to run again in 2024. According to a Hill-HarrisX poll published Monday conducted November 17 to 19, 47 percent of registered voters asked would back him going again in 2024 with 75 percent of Republicans supporting this.

Two-thirds of Republican respondents, 66 percent, in a Seven Letter Insight poll said they would support Trump running for president again in 2024. Overall, what most respondents said they would support would be him calling for national unity, with 82 percent of 1,500 voters asked November 10 to 19 saying they would back him doing this.

'We are a nation of laws, not tweets': Republican Sens. Romney and Sasse decry Trump efforts to challenge election

  'We are a nation of laws, not tweets': Republican Sens. Romney and Sasse decry Trump efforts to challenge election "It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American President," Romney said of Trump's contacts with local officials."Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election," said Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, in a tweet.

President Trump ’s legal team has not presented evidence of the massive fraud which would have had to be present to overturn the election. Biden said the delayed transition was an “embarrassment” and his team’s inability to begin coordinating coronavirus vaccine distribution could cost lives.

Late last week, US President Donald Trump tweeted that he wonders why Democrat Joe Biden is "so quickly forming a Cabinet when my investigators have found hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes", which POTUS claimed is "enough to 'flip' at least four" swing states.

In a a Washington Examiner/YouGov survey conducted prior to Election Day, 1,200 registered voters were asked what they would like to see Trump do should he suffer defeat.

Among Republicans asked this, on October 30, more than a third, 38 percent, said they would want Trump to stay in politics and run again in 2024.

Trump's former aide Steve Bannon has tipped Trump as being likely to run again in 2024. It has also been suggested that if he does not do this, he could push one of his children to take up his mantle instead.

Newsweek has contacted the Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign for comment on Trump's potential future once results are finalized.
