Conservatives are actively preparing for another Trump presidency by launching a highly focused and organized effort to maximize his potential second term. According to The Center Square, “the movement, named Project 2025, announced this week it had the backing of 100 conservative groups, including the most established and well-funded institutions inside Washington, D.C.”

There are four areas of focus for the project, per the outlet:

  • A database of conservatives and Trump loyalists to quickly stock the executive branch.
  • Preemptive training for those appointees so they can immediately take action once they take office.
  • An aggressive policy agenda to begin implementing on day one.
  • A 180-day playbook for Trump’s second term.

During his first term, former President Trump faced significant challenges that hindered his administration’s effectiveness. These included defections within his ranks, uncooperative Republican leaders who often opposed him on various policy issues despite having full control of Congress, and a barrage of investigations from Executive Branch agencies. Notably, the special counsel investigation into alleged ‘Russian collusion,’ authorized by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, was a major distraction, the outlet reported. Trump’s initial months and years in office were also marked by chaos and disorganization because his victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton took many by surprise, the outlet reported.

“This is a historic moment for the conservative movement,” Paul Dans, director of the 2025 Presidential Transition Project, said in a statement, per The Center Square. “From the time we launched this project, we knew conservatives needed to put aside differences and come together if we are to succeed in restoring our federal government to one ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people.’ And reaching 100 members on our advisory board is monumental.”

The Center Square adds:

The Heritage Foundation is helping lead the effort. Notably, for his first term, Trump released a list of potential Supreme Court Justice candidates that was created with help of the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation.

Trump was able to place three justices in just one term, which has a significant impact on several major court cases, not the least of which was the overturning of Roe v. Wade, which handed the abortion issue back to the states.

Nate Silver, the founder of FiveThirtyEight and recognized elections expert, has released his predictive model for the 2024 presidential election. His model currently favors former President Donald Trump, who is the presumptive Republican nominee, to defeat President Joe Biden in what would be a repeat of their previous contest from four years ago.

“The model is ready,” Silver announced on X. “And here’s our headline: the presidential election isn’t a toss-up.” According to Silver, the model he created for the 2024 election closely mirrors the one he developed for FiveThirtyEight in 2020, with adjustments made for “turnout dynamics.” This includes accounting for the increased impact of third-party candidates like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and omitting assumptions specific to the COVID-19 pandemic.
