Trump Wins CPAC Straw Poll By A Large Margin

Trump Wins CPAC Straw Poll By A Large Margin

Trump hasn't officially put out a statement of his intention to run. However, he has said multiple times that he is the 45th and 47th president.


It’s midterm year, which means the show is on. As Tuesday marks a big day for those in Texas, CPAC wasted no time covering Trump again.

Attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando selected former President Donald Trump as their favorite for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, with 59% of voters selecting Trump in the annual gathering’s straw poll.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis trailed Trump by more than 30 points, winning 28% of the straw poll, which included 2,574 attendees. Without Trump on the ballot, DeSantis won the support of 61% of attendees, including two-thirds of Trump supporters. The straw polls are conducted anonymously through the CPAC app at the conference, where attendees, obviously, are conservative.

Trump’s presence loomed large over CPAC, where 97% of attendees said they approved of him. The former president addressed the gathering Saturday night, blaming President Biden for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Trump also heavily criticized Democrats and insisted a GOP comeback was on the way. Which is a definite possibility.
