Whom do conservatives prefer to be their presidential candidate in 2024?
The clear answer to that question is Donald Trump, who devastated the would-be competition in a straw poll Saturday by the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC.
The former president collected a whopping 69 percent of the vote at CPAC's conference in Dallas, followed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at 24 percent.
No one one else was even close, as U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, came in third with 2 percent.
A dozen other names including South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Missouri Congressman Josh Hawley, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin and Florida Sen. Rick Scott all received 1 percent or less.
