At the annual Conservative Political Action Conference’s (CPAC) much anticipated straw poll for the Republican nominee in 2024, former President Donald Trump won handly with 59% of the 2,500 votes cast. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis came in a distant second with 28% of the vote, the only candidate other than Trump to reach double digits.
The straw poll confirmed two trends that were evident throughout the four days of this yearâ€™s CPAC in Orlando, Fla.Â
Nearly 15 months after losing his 2020 reelection bid, Trump remains overwhelmingly popular among the GOPâ€™s conservative base and would likely run away with the 2024 Republican presidential nomination should he mount a comeback bid.Â

At the CPAC conference, Trump strongly hinted that he would run again in 2024.
