At the Turning Point Action conference in Florida's Palm Beach County Convention Center, former president Donald Trump won the straw poll by a significant margin over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the other 2024 GOP candidates, boasting about the outcome in a Truth Social post.

On Sunday afternoon, Charlie Kirk announced the results from the podium, emphasizing that Vivek Ramaswamy finished in second place rather than Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Mike Pence, Chris Christie, or one of the other more well-known contenders.

In a post on Truth Social, Trump reveled in the outcome that was never in doubt at the overwhelmingly MAGA conference, where candidates like Asa Hutchinson received loud jeers.

I (WE!) won the major Turning Point Straw Poll in a BLOWOUT, receiving 85.7% of the vote, Trump wrote. Vivek received 2%, Sloppy Chris Christie received a big, fat ZERO, and Ron DeSantimonious finished a solid third with 4.3%.

Although Kirk claimed on stage that Ramaswamy placed third in the vice presidential preference poll and second in the presidential preference poll, the numbers don't seem to add up.

At the TPUSA event, DeSantis didn't give a speech. Chris Christie engaged in conflict with Tucker Carlson regarding American support for Ukraine.
