The Turning Point USA Student Action Summit wrapped up over the weekend, replete with an appearance from expected GOP nominee Donald Trump winning over the crowd with his humor and truth telling.
That Donald Trump is likable is an understatement. In polls, he is consistently voted the most popular politician in the country. Despite the entirety of his administration being dogged by flat out lies and Deep State disinformation, not least of which the Hillary Clinton-manufactured Russian Collusion narrative, and subsequently overcoming two failed impeachment efforts (and Soviet-style J6 prime time hearings right now), Trump is still the man.
The American public has woken up to the corruption, deceit, and utter disregard their elected leaders have for them. Let’s not forget that the political-medical-pharmaceutical alliance willfully allowed hundreds of thousands of people to die by withholding and demonizing early treatment options while simultaneously foisting upon them dangerous and untested treatments instead.
They hate us.
And so it was that the Turning Point USA straw poll for 2024 that Donald Trump decimated the other possible GOP contenders. Almost 80% – a full 78.9% – of attendees stated that they would vote for Donald Trump among the field of GOP hopefuls. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, hugely popular for preserving freedom and taking on wokesim in the Sunshine State, came in second with 19% of the vote.
Make no mistake, a Ron DeSantis nomination would be wildly popular, but there is no replicating Donald Trump.
Fox News wrote about the weekend’s keynote address given by the former president:

“Trump spoke at the conference Saturday night, hinting at a 2024 run. His speech was the keynote on the second day of the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit. Trump’s speech followed one Friday night by DeSantis, who’s considered along with Trump one of the foremost potential GOP 2024 contenders.
Teasing his own possible 2024 run, Trump said Saturday that he won the 2016 election, falsely claimed he won the 2020 election, and said, “now we may just have to do it again.”
“If I stayed home, if I announced that I was not going to run for office, the persecution of Donald Trump would immediately stop,” Trump also said later in the speech. “But that’s what they want me to do. And you know what? There’s no chance I do that.”
Trump closed his speech saying that with President Biden’s presidency, his reelection slogan of “keep America great,” is now outdated. But, Trump said, “we will make America great again.””
Having dropped nuggets here and there for sometime, there have been rumors ramping up that Trump will formally announce his candidacy ahead of the midterm elections. This would serve as both a boost for the predicted red wave and also give time for other candidates to avoid having to figure out if they want to waste their time running against the most popular politician in the country.
