A majority of registered voters say they’re open to giving President Donald Trump a second term — with almost a quarter of them citing the economy as their reason, a new poll showed Monday.

In the HarrisX survey conducted for The Hill, 54 percent said they’d think about voting for Trump; 46 percent said they wouldn’t even consider casting a ballot for Trump.

The economy will figure prominently in voters’ decision, according to the poll; 22 percent of those saying they could vote for Trump cited the economy as their primary reason.

"Clearly the economy is always the issue in every presidential election," GOP pollster Ed Goeas told Hill.TV. "Because that's what it always is. Jobs, the economy, taxes. Basically, do people feel their lives are doing better economically than when that president went in?"

The margin of error in the poll — which was conducted before a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was released — is plus or minus 3.1 percent points.

Here’s some other findings:

  • 95 percent of respondents who said they voted for Trump in 2016 said they’d do it again in 2020.
  • 76 percent of 2016 Hillary Clinton voters said they would "never" vote for Trump; 24 percent said they’d at least consider it.
  • 65 percent of respondents who didn’t vote in 2016 said they’d never vote for Trump; 35 percent said they could do so.
