The Conservative Political Action Conference or CPAC, took place in Texas this weekend and Trump won the 2024 presidential straw poll.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took second place.
Despite all the work Democrats and the media have done to try to make Trump a toxic political figure, it just hasn’t worked.
Conservative voters still like him very much.
FOX News reports:
Trump easily wins Texas CPAC 2024 GOP presidential nomination straw poll; DeSantis second
Former President Donald Trump convincingly won the 2024 GOP presidential nomination straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) three-day gathering in Texas
Trump, who’s repeatedly teased making another presidential run in 2024 to try and return to the White House, captured 69% of ballots cast in the anonymous online straw poll, according to results announced by CPAC on Saturday.
The support for the former president, who remains the most popular and influential politician in the Republican Party and continues to play a kingmaker’s role in GOP primaries, is up from his 59% showing in the anonymous online straw poll at the CPAC gathering in Orlando, Florida in February.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in second on the 2024 presidential nomination question, at 24%, down from his 28% showing at CPAC in Orlando five months ago.
DeSantis has seen his popularity surge among Republican voters in his state and around the nation over the past two and a half years, thanks in large part to his relentless pushback against COVID-19 restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic as well as his aggressive actions in the culture wars.
This is going to fuel continued speculation that Trump is going to run again.
