After a wildly successful showing so far during the primary election season, it’s now more apparent than ever that Donald Trump and his America First agenda have officially taken over the Republican Party — and conservatives agree!
No one expected MAGA to become this influential, especially as Democrats successfully rigged the 2020 election and after Deep State officials staged a sham insurrection that prompted a total meltdown in Washington D.C.
But as Hillary Clinton once said, “Nevertheless, [he] persisted.”
Donald Trump attended the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday in Dallas, Texas where he delivered a speech that brought attendees to their knees. The Former President all but announced a 2024 White House run preempting some campaign promises that harkened back to his successful 2016 campaign.
Conservative attendees were blown away by Trump’s performance and heaped massive praise on the Former President in an unofficial straw poll following the event.
CPAC attendees were asked who should be picked as the 2024 Republican nominee was easily claimed by President Donald Trump with a sweeping majority.
Jim McLaughlin, a pollster for Trump who conducted the straw poll, announced the results onstage just hours before the former president was expected to take the stage, UPI reports.

While not at CPAC, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was also widely popular amongst conservative attendees. Some vendors even sold merchandise featuring the America First governor’s likeness. DeSantis is largely considered Trump’s only legitimate rival in regards to being the official GOP nominee in 2024. The governor’s policies are largely in line with Trump’s America First agenda — DeSantis has even adopted several of the Former President’s public speaking flourishes.
DeSantis earned 24% of the vote compared to Trump’s 69% in the straw poll but 65% of attendees said they would vote for DeSantis if the Former President was not offered as a choice.
Conservative attendees offered little to no support for any other potential Republican candidate — a major repudiation of RINOism. Sen. Ted Cruz received just two percent of the vote in the straw poll while Texas Gov. Greg Abbott did not register above zero.
While not scientific in any way, the CPAC straw polls are a good representation of the feelings most conservatives across the nation have about specific candidates. The poll results act as a decently-accurate cross-section of Republican voters, most of which are absolutely fatigued by the party RINOs who insist on deliberately sabotaging Trump and thus sabotaging the entire country.
