Trump takes commanding lead in Mackinac GOP conference straw poll

Conservatives leaders from Michigan met at Mackinac Island last weekend for the state’s Republican Leadership Conference where former President Donal Trump received more than 47 percent of the vote in an early poll regarding the 2024 Republican nomination.

The event included keynote speakers such as Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem and South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.

The straw poll revealed Trump winning with just over 47 percent of the vote, strongly ahead of any challenger, though still below a majority of 50 percent.

GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told the audience, “We will win back the House and Senate but only if we are united,” and, “remember who we’re trying to beat.”

The event confirmed Trump’s influence in the party, while also revealing strong energy from conservatives heading into the 2022 midterm election.
