The ex-president donald trump He has not confirmed that he will compete in the 2024 elections to try to return to the White House, but he has constantly toyed with the idea and has the support for it, since a high percentage of Republicans support him.

59% of attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida selected former President Trump as their favorite for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

That places the former president well above his main competitor, the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantiswho obtained 28% of the endorsement.

In the event that Trump did not enter the electoral contest, then DeSantis leads with 61% support among CPAC attendeesthe most important gathering between Republicans.

No other Republicans stood out in the poll, considered informal, but a clear view of Republican base voters.

Former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, got just 2% support.

Others got just 1 percent, like Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz (Texas), and former Vice President Mike Pence.

Even if former President Trump did not participate in the election, most of the possible contenders registered between one and six percentage points, except for DeSantis, who clearly led.

The former president maintained his attack speech against the president Joe Bidenincluding its actions in Ukraine.

That and other problems, according to Trump, will be the reason for the Republicans to control Congress by winning in 2022 and return to the White House after the 2024 process.

“[Los demócratas] they will find out the hard way starting on November 8, and then even more so in November 2024,” Trump said in his speech. “They will find out like never before.”

He emphasized that, according to him, he won in 2022, as he has argued without evidence.

“We did it twice. We will do it again. We are going to do it again for the third time,” she stated.

The poll highlighted that Republicans believe that the Democratic candidate in 2024 will be Hillary Clinton (22%) against just 11% who mentioned Vice President Kamala Harris.
