“Former President Donald Trump topped the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll for the 2024 GOP nomination by a wide margin at the conservative conference Saturday.
Trump won 62% support in the poll, which was announced shortly before he was scheduled to speak to the crowd gathered at the Gaylord in Fort Washington, Maryland.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in as second choice with 20% support. The third-place pick at 5% support was long-shot GOP candidate Perry Johnson, a businessman who attempted to run for governor in Michigan but was blocked from participating in the Republican primary.
Kari Lake, the Republican Arizona gubernatorial nominee in 2022, received the most support for vice presidential candidate with 20%. DeSantis received 14% support for the 2024 vice presidential nominee in the CPAC poll. Over 2,000 attendees completed the poll, organizers said.
Trump easily won the 2024 GOP presidential nomination straw polls at major CPAC gatherings in Orlando, Florida and Dallas, Texas last year. The former president, who launched his 2024 bid last November and who remains the most popular and influential politician in the GOP more than two years after leaving the White House, captured 69% of ballots cast in the anonymous online straw poll last August in Dallas and 59% in Orlando last February.” (Courtesy FoxNews.com)
I am not surprised by the vote at CPAC.
Trump was right…about everything.
In just over 2 years, Biden and his handlers have begun to turn the “Shining City Upon a Hill” into a Third World Socialist Barrio resembling Venezuela.
Even as I type this, America continues to face a supply chain problem affecting food, clothing, and other essential supplies.
Whether it is because they cannot find anyone willing to offload the ships sitting in the waters of our ports because of the labor shortage or if it has to do with some sort of blackmail by the Chinese, I do not know.
I do know that it is affecting our economy and hurting a lot of Americans’ jobs and paychecks who have continued working hard since before the entire Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic.
A non-functioning National Supply Chain can destroy a Sovereign Nation.
Just ask Venezuela.
During the Trump Administration, America was beginning to absolutely boom economically.
Now, we have have more people than ever sitting around waiting for some more “Free Money” from “Uncle Sugar”, a.k.a. #DementiaJoe instead of going out and getting a job.
The lines and poor service at fast food restaurants, grocery stores, and even in Walmarts from coast to coast bear witness to this mostrous decline in our economy.
So do the conrinuing high prices at the pump at gasoline stations across the Fruited Plains.
Out of control crime and inflation, young people not working, groomers “teaching” innocent children, thousands of illegals pouring across our Southern Border, a rapidly deteriorating President trying to shake hands with people who aren’t even tbere…children being taught to hate America and each other…nope…nothing to see here…move along.
Hold on. Let me answer for you Far Lrft TDS-suffering Democrats out there: But…but…Trump!!!!!
Yes, Donald J Trump can be his own worst enemy sometimes, but he was certainly turning this country around when the Wuhan Lab Leak happened.
Former President Trump was exactly right.
Joe Biden and the Democrat Elite, in their zeal to turn our Constitutional Republic into a “Democratic Socialist” country are attempting to push average Americans, the majority in our country, out of the way through tyrannical intimidation.
It is going to be up to average Americans, those of us whom Hillary Clinton referred to as “Deplorables” to take our country back.
In between now and then, we need to stand up and be counted, whether it is at school Board meetings protecting our children, talking to friends, family, and co-workers, or letting our opinions about the current Administration be known on Social Media.
We simply cannot remain idle and silent at this critical time.
Until He Comes,
