Trump Wins Mackinac Conference Poll at 47.5% with DeSantis taking Second -ss-Featured

Michigan conservatives gathered in Mackinac Island this weekend for the biennial Republican Leadership Conference in the state.

Apart from experiencing a great time sightseeing, attendees of the conference also managed to hear from the country’s most well-known Republican Party members, such as Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas.), Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota, and Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.)

The meeting aimed to give Michigan Republicans the opportunity to share ideas and plan the party’s plan of action moving forward. However, the conference’s secret ballot poll reveals an unofficial indication of who residents in Michigan would want to be the party’s top ticket in 2024.

Unsurprisingly, former President Donald Trump was on the top spot, getting 47.5% of the votes, per The Detroit News – the sponsor of the said straw poll.

Even though the former president is way ahead of any other candidate, his points in this poll are lower than the vote-share he garnered at CPAC in Dallas back in July. There, he scored 70% of the vote. Meanwhile, in the CPAC back in February, the former president got 55% of the total votes.

Around 740 Republicans served as the respondents of the poll last weekend, per The Detroit News.

Next to Trump was Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, who received around 25% of the vote. This comes consistent with his performances in the other CPACs’ polls for this year. However, the said CPAC events included surveys in which Trump was not included in the potential list of candidates. For those, DeSantis won both.

The rest of the top five in Mackinac’s polls included Noem on third with 8%, Cruz with 6%, and former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley.

When it comes to the influence the former president has over Michigan Republicans, 44% of the respondents say his endorsement won’t matter when deciding which candidate to support.

Meanwhile, regarding issues Republicans at the conference consider important, 28% said “election integrity,” putting this at the top of the list. Other issues ranking high included taxes and spending (25%), abortion (11%), and inflation (10%).

In connection to handling the COVID-19 pandemic, 56% of the poll respondents believe the government doesn’t have a role to play in trying to mitigate the pandemic.

    More theater for the theater, within the theater.

    This is simply an indication that areas of the country with lots of leftists seem to have lots of conservatives that lean to the left, or at least believe some of the leftist propaganda.
    As to the mention of covid, it still amazes me that people bought into the idea that we should lock up all the healthy people to make it better. Seems to me that is like locking up all the honest people to stop crime.

    Just remember no matter how stupid you are Donald Trump was the greatest president we’ve had in a long time …. I wish she can come back in 2024 when he’s going to be four years older and I’ll go to my grave saying I don’t know how he lost yes it was rigged it was rigged
