CPAC 2024 GOP presidential nomination straw poll results to be revealed Saturday

Veteran Republican pollster Jim McLaughlin calls the straw poll ballot at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) "the ultimate barometer of what’s going on in the conservative movement."
McLaughlin and Associates, which conducted polling for former President Donald Trump’s successful 2016 election and unsuccessful 2020 re-election bid, will once again oversee the CPAC straw poll, this time at the confab in Dallas.
The three-day conference concludes Saturday with the release of the straw poll results — including the highly anticipated 2024 Republican presidential nomination questions — followed by a keynote speech from the former president.

The 2024 straw poll includes a second list without Trump.
The former president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., takes his place in the first spot on the ballot in the second 2024 question.
His support jumped to 70% in the 2024 straw poll conducted at last summer’s CPAC in Texas.
Trump captured 59% of ballots cast in the anonymous online straw poll at the CPAC Orlando gathering in February.

CPAC, long the largest and most influential gathering of conservatives, has become a Trumpfest since his 2016 presidential election victory.
Voting on the CPAC Texas straw poll ballot is only open to attendees of the confab, which kicked off Thursday.
