(Republican Party News) – With the midterms drawing close, a lot of attention is starting to shift toward the 2024 presidential race which will kick off early next year, as many wonder who will end up being the GOP nominee to take on whoever decides to run for the Democrats, as it’s looking sort of up in the air whether or not Biden will give the White House a second shot.
Well, according to WND, it seems that the answer to that question is clearly President Donald Trump, as he obliterated the potential competition in a straw poll that was held on Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, also known as CPAC.
The poll had a stunning 69 percent of the vote at the CPAC conference in Dallas, Texas going to Trump with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis coming in second place at 24 percent, which is honestly not surprising given how much great work he has done in his state fighting the leftist mob and standing up for true conservative values.
No one else was even close.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz took third place with only 2 percent. That says something, don’t you think? Cruz is by far no slouch in the conservative arena, but he just doesn’t have the power and backing of the majority of diehard Republicans like Trump does.
“A dozen other names including South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin and Florida Sen. Rick Scott all received 1 percent or less,” WND stated.
A report from the New York Post then revealed, “The results show that despite being banned from Twitter and fading from national headlines, the former president would remain the odds-on favorite to win the nomination in November should he decide to run.”
Steve Bannon, who once served as a White House counselor under President Trump, went on to tell the Post, “No Republican can stop Trump from the nomination; no Democrat can stop Trump from the presidency.”
Writer J.D. Rucker from the Liberty Daily pointed out that there was one very recognizable Republican name that was almost non-existent on the poll results.
“Hmm. A name seems to be missing,” Rucker said.
“Those who get their news from corporate media or receive fundraising emails from various Republican Establishment groups might have assumed Mike Pence’s name would be there. After all, he’s been touted by the likes of Fox News as a ‘likely frontrunner’ or ‘early favorite’ for the 2024 nomination should he choose to run,” Rucker explained.
“That’s what they want you to think. Pence finished an abysmal 10th with 0.2 percent of straw poll votes,” he continued.
“The Trump-hating Uniparty Swamp desperately wants Trump (and DeSantis, for that matter) to be eliminated from running in 2024. They want Pence, Haley, or one of their RINO favorites to lead the party and the nation. That’s not going to happen,” he added.
The big takeaway here is that Trump still has the majority of the influence among conservative voters and those who are serious about wanting to see our country healed and put back on the right track.
I have a feeling we’re going to see Trump have a second term as president, followed by a DeSantis administration shortly to follow since Trump will no longer be able to serve as commander-in-chief. The future looks very bright for the American people.
