Trump finished his weekend strong after speaking at the Family Research Council’s “Pray, Vote, Stand Summit” in Washington, D.C., emerging victorious in their anticipated presidential straw poll.
According to a statement from FRC Action, 63.9 percent of respondents voted for Trump to be president in 2024. This gives Trump a 36-point lead over Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., who got 27.3 percent of the vote and came in second.
With 2.2% of the vote, former Vice President Mike Pence came in third. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) and investor Vivek Ramaswamy both said they had just over 1% of the vote.
FRC Action Chairman Tony Perkins stated of the results, “SAGE Cons (Spiritually Active, Governance Engaged Conservatives) want a proven leader who not only understands the threats to our freedoms but is committed to fighting back against the leftist mob that has weaponized the government against the American people.”
Trump is leading in the race for the White House in more than just the FRC straw poll. According to RSBN, Trump took his biggest lead yet in the 2024 Republican primary polls when he had a huge 46-point lead over Gov. DeSantis in a popular CBS poll.
YouGov’s most recent general election poll showed that Trump was beating Joe Biden on a national level, with 50% of the national vote to Biden’s 49%. Trump was way ahead among Independent votes by a huge 15 points.
In a general election in the whole country in 2024, a Harvard/Harris study showed that Trump had a four-point lead over Biden. In the GOP race for the nomination, the 45th president was 47 points ahead of the second-place finisher, DeSantis, who got only 10% of the vote. Ramaswamy got 8% of the vote from Republican primary voters, which put him in a close third place.
