Trump easily Wins Straw Poll at Turning Point USA summit
Trump outdistanced Ron DeSantis by a 4-to-1 margin
Former President Donald Trump on Sunday easily won the Turning Point USA straw poll, outdistancing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by a 4-to-1 margin among young conservatives attending the event.
Trump showed his continued strength for a possible 2024 presidential campaign, capturing 78.7% of the support from the millennial and GenZ attendees at the Florida event.
About 19% said they would vote for DeSantis if he were to run in 2024, 1% said they’d vote for South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, 0.5% preferred former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; while 0.3% each endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz, former Ambassador Nikki Haley and former Vice President Mike Pence.
Both DeSantis and Trump gave keynote speeches at the summit, with the former president sending a clear signal he may run for a second term in 2024.
“We’re going to take back our liberty. We’re going to take back our destiny. We’re going to take back, very soon, our country,” Trump said to cheers.
