Almost 70% of people polled at CPAC Sunday said they would like to see Trump run for president again in 2024; 15% said they would not.
“So again you see how important to everybody here — the grassroots, the base of the conservative movement, the base of the Republican Party — it is either President Trump or a Trump candidate,” said pollster Jim McLaughlin announcing the poll’s results.
Among the several topics gauged at the conference, the most unanimous was 97% of those polled who said they approve of Trump’s job performance while he was president.
