Former President Donald Trump is currently leading other possible candidates by a huge margin on a new straw poll. While possible vice-presidential candidates are now being eyed with those who landed in second place.

According to the CPAC straw poll, it shows that Former President Donald Trump got a winning vote of 70 percent of ballots cast, which is far from the number that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who took second place with 21 percent of the vote.

The said straw poll included seventeen other presidential candidates and only DeSantis breaks the break double digits. No other candidate earned more than one percent.

This new poll has a major increase from the first one conducted last February 2021 that shows only 55 percent of Trump’s supporters.

Despite giving the hints that he will run for the 2024 election, Trump has not yet formally announced it but it is clear that GOP voters want him to run that also made them worry that he might not be able to continue since he would not want to put his family through the ordeal of another campaign and presidency.

During his speech at the CPAC event in Dallas, Texas, gave many of his supporters the hope that he’ll be back in the White House in the future:

“I want to personally thank every one of you for your incredible support. With the help of everyone here today, we will defeat the radical left, the socialists, Marxists, and the critical race theorists,” Trump vowed. “We will secure our borders, we will stop left-wing cancel culture, we will restore free speech and free elections and we will make America great again.”

“The people in this room have been some of the staunchest and fiercest supporters [of] the greatest political movement in the history of our country,” he added.

The poll also asked another question: who would be the favorite in the presidential race if Trump were to decide not to run in 2024. Again, GOP voters seemed pretty united on their answer, giving Ron DeSantis 68 percent of the vote. No one else came close. Pompeo landed in second place with 5 percent of the vote, with Donald Trump Jr. and Ted Cruz tying for third at 4 percent.

The new poll that highlighted Ron DeSantis’ popularity to many people is now in the eyes of many political analysts. With DeSantis’ strong popularity to GOP voters, it is clear that uniting on a ticket with Donald Trump would be something that the voters could rally behind.
