CPAC asked attendees of its event in Dallas, Texas, who they thought should be the GOP nominee for President in 2024.
Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump topped the list with a massive 70% of the vote.
In a distant second was Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, with 21%.
The rest of the scores were dismal.
President Trump won with 70% of the vote. DeSantis came in a distant second with a mere 21% of the vote. Six more candidates tied at 1%, including Sen. Rand Paul, anti-Trump former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Sen. Ted Cruz, Fox News host Tucker Carlson, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, and Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.National File
1% is something, at least.
And we’re sure that people like Tucker Carlson would do better if Trump and DeSantis weren’t in the race.
It just means Trump and DeSantis are the preferred candidates, and that’s no surprise given they’ve both held political office.
But that’s just the options on the list who got votes.
Plenty didn’t get any!
Mike Pence actually managed to go down from 1% to 0%, which is extremely embarrassing for him.
Another noteworthy 0% potential candidate is Mike Pence, who has been branded a traitor to America First following his decision not to contest the Electoral College tallies from states with credible reports of widespread voter fraud on January 6 of this year. Since then, Pence has postured strongly for a 2024 run for President. This is down from the still-embarrassing 1% Pence garnered at the CPAC held earlier this year in Florida.National File
Texas Governor Greg Abbott also received no votes, which doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
It is particularly noteworthy that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who has repeatedly come under fire from conservatives in his own state for failing to secure the southern border and failing to protect children from chemical castration and gender modification surgeries, received 0% of the vote.National File
So did the most obnoxious RINO in history, Mitt Romney, as well as a crowd of others.
It looks like patriots have spoken.
They want Trump!
