Conservative youth activists have overwhelmingly picked former President Donald Trump over Fl Governor Ron DeSantis within the 2024 GOP presidential candidate selection straw poll at a peak in the Sunshine State.
Asked who have they would vote for if the former president launched the re-election bid for 2024, 78. 7% of the guests at the Turning Point USA Student Action gathering chose Trump, while 19% picked DeSantis.
No other Republican even came close, with South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem being the nearest at 1%, followed by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at 0. 5%. Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, former EL ambassador Nikki Haley and ex-Vice President Mike Pence finished with 0. 3% each piece in the poll.
Attendees of the summit were also mentioned which potential Democratic candidate would be “ the most hard to defeat for President in 2024? ” California Gov. Gavin Newsom led the pack at 30. 3%, while former First Lady Michelle Obama and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came in second and third with 13. 6% and 10. 5%, respectively.
Speaking at the gathering on Saturday night, Trump, in particular, hinted at their 2024 run, recalling that he won the 2016 selection and adding that “ now we may just have to do it again. ”
The particular remarks came after a New York Times/Siena College poll discovered Trump leading the number of potential Republican nominees for president with 49% of support, and DeSantis trailing him with 25%.
Most potential contender broke the particular 10% threshold, with Texas Senator Ted Cruz and former Vice President Mike Pence getting 7% plus 6%, respectively, according to the survey.
The survey followed Trump telling this news outlet New York Magazine earlier this month that he seems “ very confident” that when he “ decides in order to run”, he will prevail.
“ In my own mind, I’ve already produced that decision, so nothing elements in anymore. I would say my big decision will be whether I go prior to or after. You understand what that means? ” Trump added without elaborating.
President Joe Biden , who prevailed over Trump in the 2020 political election, previously said that he would “ not be disappointed” to face off against his former Republican rival for a second period.
