Former President Donald Trump, who has teased he plans to run again in 2024, was the clear choice in a presidential straw poll of attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference, beating out Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Trump had an approval rating of 99% and was the choice of 69% of about 1,000 attendees at the conference in Dallas who voted, followed by DeSantis at 24%. Texas Senator Ted Cruz had 2% with other potential candidates at 1% or less.
