A new poll conducted during the Western Conservative Summit revealed Tuesday that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has increased his influence in the West. This is a region that in the coming days will have a series of primaries that will test the influence of Republican leaders such as former President Donald Trump within the party.
“Question one asked Summit attendees to vote for all the 2024 presidential candidates they approve of out of 31 choices of popular figures across the political spectrum. The candidates listed included both Republican and Democratic candidates. The top five candidates, in order of most approval to least, were: Ron DeSantis (74%), Donald Trump (71%), Sen. Ted Cruz (43%), Mike Pompeo (39%), and Sen. Tim Scott (36%). Former Vice President Pence came in tenth place,” explained the Centennial Institute, which organized the event.
It added: “Question two asked attendees to mark any of 25 policy issues as most important to them. The top five most important issues were: Immigration/Border Security (82%), Election Integrity (79%), Religious Freedom (75%), Federal Budget/Deficit (74%) and Gun Rights (74%).”
Citizens expressed agreement with the measures implemented by the Republican governor regarding the economy, the handling of the pandemic, and his fight against the left in ideological indoctrination.
