CPAC Poll Results Deliver Huge Blow to One Side of the GOP

Linkedin Share

There is no doubt that a fight for control of the future of the Republican Party is fully underway now, as the MAGA wing of the GOP continues to push back against the old guard’s timid politicking.

And the de facto head of the MAGA Movement remains the clear frontrunner in just about every poll conducted on the right side of the aisle. This now includes the all-important CPAC straw poll.

Former President Donald Trump easily won the 2024 GOP presidential nomination straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) gathering this weekend in Florida.

Trump, who’s repeatedly flirted with making another presidential run in 2024 to try and return to the White House, captured 59% of ballots cast in the anonymous online straw poll, according to results announced by CPAC on Sunday afternoon.

This is nothing new, either.

The former president, who remains the most popular and influential politician in the Republican Party as he continues to play a kingmaker’s role in GOP primaries, won 55% support a year ago in the CPAC Orlando straw poll. Trump jumped to 70% support in the 2024 straw poll conducted last July at CPAC in Dallas.

Trump’s domination will certainly deflate the Democrats as well, as current President Joe Biden has insisted on running again in 2024, and there is little doubt that Trump losing to him again seems unlikely.
