Former President Donald Trump easily won the Conservative Political Action Conference’s (CPAC) straw poll for the 2024 Republican Party presidential nominee on Saturday.
Trump received 62 percent support in the poll completed by more than 2,000 CPAC attendees, bringing him 40 points higher than the second-place candidate.
CPAC’s straw poll results were announced on Saturday just before Trump took the stage to address the conservative crowd at the Gaylord in Fort Washington, Maryland.
Here is the CPAC straw poll:
