Trump Overwhelmingly Wins CPAC’s 2024 Straw Poll

As the Republican Party debates whether or not to continue embracing former President Donald Trump, attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) say they would support him in the party’s 2024 presidential primary.

The results of CPAC’s straw poll were released on Sunday, which found that 55% of respondents say they would vote for Trump in the 2024 Republican primary.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) came in second with 21%, and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) came in third with 4%.

Watch the video below:

Pollster Jim McLaughlin announced the results as he said, “I think unfortunately this poll is probably going to trigger a lot of the media again.”

Applause broke out as he announced that Trump was the front runner for the nomination. 

Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they want Trump to run again. And 95% said they want the Republican Party to work to advance the policies espoused by Trump.

The straw poll found that if Trump did not run again, 43% of respondents would vote for DeSantis, and 11% would vote for Noem.

Eight percent of respondents said they would vote for Donald Trump Jr., and seven percent said they would vote for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) or former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

Trump was scheduled to speak at the conservative gathering on Sunday, where he was expected to “talk about the future –the future of our movement, the future of our party, and the future of our beloved country.”

“The Republican Party is united. The only division is between a handful of Washington D.C. establishment political hacks, and everybody else all over the country,” Trump will say in his speech, according to an excerpt.

    So, Cult-45 are all-in on the hate, fearmongering, corruption, xenophobia and racism. Got it.

    “Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they want Trump to run again.” Article

    Maybe the fact that he would be 78-82 years old in the next possible term is starting to have an effect on voter’s minds, IF he would be lucky enough to win and IF he doesn’t get impeached AGAIN.

    Ooops! Things aren’t looking so hot, Big Buddy. They like your message of hate, they just don’t want you as the messenger.

    1. BTW, both Mitt Romney AND Rand Paul won quiet a few of these nonsense Straw Polls, in their day. Look how much good THAT did them. 😀

    2. Not to mention that 55% of 30% of registered voters isn’t much. Just sayin….

  2. “Overwhelmingly Wins”?

    I’m not sure if you’d call 55% of the people attending CPAC overwhelming. Majority, yes, but not overwhelming. I would have thought that everyone there were hardcore Trump fans, so I would have expected it to be near unanimous.

    If he could only get the support of a bit more than half of the people engaged enough to go the CPAC, I’m sure that those numbers would be even lower for general Republican voters. Give it another three years, and that support will be even less as he fades into history.

    1. Maybe you don’t Chippy the Chump because you are a CHUMP but many do. Besides nobody cares what a CHUMP
      does or doesn’t care about.

      1. Paul, WHAT is the Trumpism definition of “CHUMP.” The conventional definition is one who is easily deceived.

        Looking just over the last 4 years, was the General the IJR poster claiming Trump did not have an affair or knowledge of the NDA and payment for Stormy Daniels? NO. Was the General the one who claimed “3-5 million illegal votes for Hillary”? NO. Was the General the one who claimed Trump was going to win in 2020? NO. Was the General the one who believed the election had been stolen from Trump? NO. Was the General the one who claimed “No collusion. No obstruction” in the Mueller Report? NO. Was the General the one who believed a wall was going to stop the entry of drugs and people smuggled thru legal ports of entry? NO. Was the General the one who believed Trump had a healthcare plan? NO. Was the General the one who claimed to believe COVID was “a Democrat Hoax”? Mexico was going to pay for a wall? China was paying the Trump IMPORT tariffs? Need I go on? Trump supporters will go down in history as the most gullible Americans since those who believed Iraq had WMD. Am I going to call you a “CHUMP”? I don’t need to do so—HISTORY will.

        1. “WHAT is the Trumpism definition of “CHUMP.” ” Phyllis

          Chump is not a Trumpism. That is just Lying Paul The Emeffer trying to, um, let’s be kind to him and say, be creative.

      2. Look at that. You ignited a firestorm of troll replies and hate.But no surprise. Chippy the Chump. Like it.
        There was also an undecided group of 17%.
        Looking at Biden’s plans for the border should concern everyone. But, of course, there are no comments from the Biden worshippers.

        1. I do hope your responding to Paul since all he ever posts is put downs against GC. It appears Paul’s brain is full of GC. So sad!

      3. Poor Paulie will be living in the future for the next 4 years, just dreaming of Mafias return to power. What will he do when it fizzles into a big ol turd??

    2. Were you thinking that in Feb., 2021, the guy who Mitch McConnell said was “personally and morally responsible” for the Jan 6, 2021 insurrection, was the TOP choice of the R’s at CPAC was a negative thing for D’s? Personally, I DON’T. I foresee many portions of the speeches run in campaign ads in 2022 and 2024. I see it as a gift to D’s that they will use time and time again.

      1. That is way too much time for Democrats to fall flat on their incompetent faces. They won’t need until 2022 for them to do that.

          1. If you haven’t gathered by now, I have no tolerance for corruption, whether it happens of the left or the right. The sooner that you understand just how corrupt the Democratic machine is, the sooner you can start resisting better and voting better.

            We MUST elect better politicians.

            And Matt Gaetz is a tool.
