The former U.S. President Donald Trump’s desire to fight again in 2024 is becoming more and more obvious. 10 in Dallas, Texas, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) released the famous straw poll, that is, a poll of attendees, 98% affirmed Trump’s performance during his term of office, in the presidential nomination, Trump alone has bagged 70% support, than he held in February this year in Orlando, the Republican Party hypothetical primary election received 55% support. This is an increase from the 55% support he received in the hypothetical Republican primary held in Orlando in February this year, showing that Trump is still the Republican Party’s co-leader and that others are not opposed to him for the time being.
The CPAC straw poll has always been considered a wind direction indicator of the Republican Party’s mass intent. The CPAC has long been the largest and most influential conservative rally, and since Trump won the presidential election in 2016, the rally has become a celebration of Trump, according to Fox News analysis. Following this trend, Trump is expected to secure the Republican presidential nomination for the 2024 election.
CPAC poll shows that if Trump runs for the 2024 presidential election, his approval rate is as high as 70%, far exceeding the 55% result of the straw poll in Orlando, Florida in February this year; the second place is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (Ron DeSantis), with 21% approval rate, the same as in February. Potential contenders ranked after DeSantis include former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, both with only 1 percent support.
The poll shows that if Trump ultimately decides not to run in the 2024 presidential election, DeSantis would receive 68 percent support, meaning that a large number of votes that would otherwise support Trump would go to DeSantis. The support of other potential nominees is only slightly increased, and the same are not more than double-digit support.
Trump delivered a 90-minute finale speech on the last day of the CPAC meeting, vowing not to let the radical left take control of the United States, criticizing the Democratic Party for promoting far-left Critical Race Theory (CRT) on campus, and Biden for his ineffective administration.
In a recent interview, Trump said he had a good chance of taking back the White House and that the Republicans also had a good chance of taking back the Senate seat, but on June 30 he told Fox Politics host Sean Hannity that he had made a final decision on whether to run in the 2024 presidential election, but he did not disclose any details.
