seriously?

Hmmmm. Well, the good folks at Politico seem to be thinking that way.

“He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” said Luke Thompson, a Republican strategist who worked for Jeb Bush’s super PAC in 2016.

While practically every Republican eyeing a 2024 presidential run is professing loyalty to Trump the person, Carlson has become perhaps the highest-profile proponent of “Trumpism” — a blend of anti-immigrant nationalism, economic populism and America First isolationism that he articulates unapologetically and with some snark. At the same time, he's shown a rare willingness among Republicans to bluntly criticize Trump when he believes the president is straying from that ideology.

Tucker Carlson Tonight” is currently the most watched cable news program in history, according to the second quarter ratings released this week. And on Fox News’ YouTube channel, Carlson’s segments from the past quarter have drawn well over 60 million views and are among the most popular videos in the eight years since the network began posting on the platform.

Being a faithful follower, I can say Tucker knows his stuff and unlike the President, articulates it clearly with liquidity. Tucker is at his best when his opposition is behaving stupidly, which has been constant over the past few months. What could be a problem for him is he doesn't articulate with compassion or a sense of empathy.

He'd definitely have a charged-up base, but I'm not sure his in-your-face style would work very well with centrists, unless he ran against a Democrat incumbent who had proven themselves woefully incompetent.
