Former President Donal Trump is coming off a fiery CPAC appearance and has emerged the overwhelming favorite for the GOP nomination in the 2024 presidential election.
“Trump got 59 percent of the vote in a straw poll conducted at the Conservative Political Action Conference‘s meeting in Orlando, Fla., beating out Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by 31 percentage points,” the New York Post reports.
“This year’s informal survey showed that Trump and DeSantis are the leading contenders for the nomination in 2024, as the next closest candidate was former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who came in third with 2 percent of the vote,” the Post added.
No other potential candidates cracked one percent, with the bottom of the list featuring familiar names like Rand Paul of Kentucky, Tim Scott of South Carolina and Ted Cruz of Texas, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, former Vice President Mike Pence, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley and Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin.
