CPAC warned reporters before they released their weekend polling results.
“This poll is probably going to trigger a lot of the media again,” pollster Jim McLaughlin said.
At least 68 percent of attendees want President Trump to run for the White House in 2024, McLaughlin said.
And 95 percent of CPAC attendees said that they want the Republican Party to continue Trump’s policies and agenda.
“The Make America Great Again Movement is the Conservative movement. Trump is the candidate who connects with middle America,” a CPAC spokesman told the cheering crowd.
The most important issue facing voters, McLaughlin said, is election integrity.
According to the polling results, 55 percent would vote for Trump, 21 percent would vote for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and four percent would vote for South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.
If President Trump decides not to run, DeSantis would garner 43 percent of the vote, Noem 11 percent and Donald Trump, Junior would receive 8 percent.
President Trump’s job approval rating as president, by the way, is 97 percent.
