Trump won the 2024 Republican presidental straw poll at the Turning Point USA summit this weekend and it wasn’t even close.
The notable thing about this is that Turning Point USA is an organization for young conservatives, which shows that Trump’s appeal with this demographic is still quite strong.
Democrats and the media have worked overtime to try to demonize and toxify Trump for two years now but it clearly hasn’t worked.
FOX News reports:
Trump dominates 2024 GOP presidential nomination straw poll at Turning Point USA summit
Former President Donald Trump dominated the 2024 GOP presidential nomination straw poll at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit Sunday, Fox News has learned.
TPUSA polled conference attendees—youth activists from around the country—who they would vote for in 2024 if Trump decided to launch another White House run. The straw poll was sponsored by Turning Point Action, the affiliated 501(c)(4) of TPUSA.
78.7% attendees said they would vote for Trump.
19% said they would vote for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, 1% said they’d vote for South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, 0.5% said they’d vote for former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; 0.3% said they would vote for Sen. Ted Cruz, 0.3% said they’d vote for former Amb. Nikki Haley; and 0.3% said they’d vote for former Vice President Mike Pence.
Trump spoke at the conference Saturday night, hinting at a 2024 run. His speech was the keynote on the second day of the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit. Trump’s speech followed one Friday night by DeSantis, who’s considered along with Trump one of the foremost potential GOP 2024 contenders.
If Trump runs in 2024, he is almost a lock to get the GOP nomination.
Trump is the overwhelming favorite to land the 2024 Republican presidential nomination with a nearly 60-point lead over his closest competitor, according to a Trafalgar straw poll conducted at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit. https://t.co/2azPjn8ZjS
