It is worth noting that due to coronavirus restrictions, CPAC will be held in Orlando, Florida in 2021. Shortly before pollster Jim McLaughlin announced the results of the straw survey, cheers erupted in the banquet hall and approved the decision to keep CPAC in Florida.
CPAC also conducted a poll without Trump. DeSantis won the poll with 43% of the vote, followed by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem with 1
Trump’s approval rate in the straw poll was 97%, and 87% of them said they strongly approve of Trump’s presidency. 68% of people in CPAC said in a straw vote that Trump should run for president again.

American Conservative League chairman Matt Schlapp also said in an interview with Fox News last week that any Republican who hopes to win the Republican nomination in 2024 must maintain close contact with Trump.
Schrapp said: “Look, you won’t make Republicans a perpetual liar. If you are not a strong conservative, you won’t get a Republican nomination. Therefore, all such marriage proposals begin with CPAC.”
