The CPAC Straw Poll made it clear that President Trump is the choice of conservatives to lead the Republican Party in 2024.
President Trump won the straw poll with 62 percent support -- more than triple Ron DeSantis’ share of the vote (20 percent). As Politico reported, “No Republican departed CPAC with more glory than former President Donald Trump.”
President Trump has a bond with conservatives because he stood up on their behalf against entrenched Washington interests. They want him back in the White House to finish the job. As President Trump told the crowd at CPAC Saturday, “We are going to complete the mission. We are going to see this battle through to ultimate victory. We are going to make America great again."
