Former President Donald Trump’s prospects for securing the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 got a nice boost from the Conservative Political Action Conference’s (CPAC) straw poll, which found that he has a nice lead over other possible candidates.
69% of straw poll respondents said they want Trump as the Republican nominee in 2024, following by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who got 24%, and then Senator Ted Cruz who got just 2%. DeSantis is the heavy favorite if Trump doesn’t run for another term in the White House. A dozen other candidates, including Mike Pompeo, Glenn Youngkin, and Rick Scott, all got 1% or less of the vote.
Overall, 99% of CPAC attendees said they approve of Donald Trump’s job performance as president.
The results of the poll show that despite being banned from social media platforms and his slow fade from national headlines, Donald Trump still has a firm grip over the Republican Party.
