CPAC 2024 Straw Poll Shows Two Clear Favorites for Trump’s VP

The results of the Conservative Political Action Conference’s (CPAC) 2024 straw poll have revealed two clear favorites for President Donald Trump’s running mate.

The Washington Examiner reports that attendees selected entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy and South Dakota’s Republican Gov. Kristi Noem as their top choices for Trump’s vice president.

Noem and Ramaswamy are believed to be on Trump’s “short list” of vice president candidates, as Slay News previously reported.

Almost 1,500 conservative voters participated in CPAC’s straw poll.

They were asked whom they would select to be Trump’s running mate.

The Examiner reports:

The list [of possibilities] included 17 contenders, including members of Congress and former rivals.

The poll also included some wildcards such as Dr. Ben Carson, who served in Trump’s Cabinet; Tucker Carlson, the former Fox News anchor; and Rep. Marjorie Taylore Greene (R-GA).

Other names on the list were Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R), former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), and others.

As mentioned at the outset, Ramaswamy and Noem came in joint first place.

They tied, having each received 15% support.

Gabbard came in third place, with 9%, and then Stefanik and Scott came in fourth, with 8% each.

Notably, of all the candidates, Haley came in last place with only 2% of the vote.

Haley is Trump’s only remaining rival in the 2024 Republican Presidential Primary.

She refuses to drop out of the race despite massive defeats in the early primaries.

Recently, Trump did a town hall event with Fox News and was asked about his running mate candidates.

The 45th president was specifically asked whether the following individuals are on his “short list”:

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, multimillionaire biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida, and former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a Democrat turned independent.

Trump responded in the affirmative, saying: “They are.

“Honestly, all of those people are good.

“They’re all good, they’re all solid.”

Trump stopped short of revealing his choice, however.

He has yet to give any indication as to when he will announce his pick.

The focus has turned to Trump’s running mate choice because it has become a foregone conclusion that he will be the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.

Trump has easily conquered the early primaries and he continues to dominate polling.

The only thing stopping the GOP from moving forward with Trump now is Haley’s bizarre insistence on staying in the race.
