The newest numbers are in and it is definitely good news for former President Donald Trump.
According to Breitbart News, Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis “led the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll, which was announced on the final day of the annual conference.”
CPAC has historically been a key indicator of the coming nomination battles.
Per the report:
Pollsters at CPAC asked conference attendees two questions: who would they support in a 2024 bid for president if Donald Trump runs, and who is their top choice if he does not. The straw poll found 70 percent of voters would back Trump in 2024 if he runs for president. In second place was DeSantis with 21 percent of the vote.
When asked who they would support in 2024 if Trump does not run, 68 percent chose DeSantis, followed by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at 5 percent and Donald Trump Jr. at 4 percent.
Both Trump and DeSantis gained support compared to the last CPAC poll, which occurred in late February in Orlando, Florida. In previous straw poll results, Trump won 55 percent of the vote with DeSantis garnering 21 percent support. With Trump excluded as a potential candidate, DeSantis received 43 percent of the vote.
