Four thousand conservative voters packed into the Hilton Anatole Convention Center in Dallas on the Lord’s Day to hear a rallying speech from former President Donald Trump. He described the difference between the Democrats and the Republicans at the CPAC Conference, reports Politico.com.
TRUMP: “The Democrats are terrible on policy, but they’re very vicious and they’re smart. And they stick together. They don’t have Mitt Romneys and little Ben Sasses and Bill Cassidy. How about Bill Cassidy? He campaigns in the great state of Louisiana. He campaigns that he’s Trump’s friend. Every ad has Trump in it: Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump. And then he votes to impeach me. I mean, can you believe it? Lightweight.
“And they don’t have anyone, the Democrats, like the war monger and most quoted Republican in the history of our country by Democrats, Liz Cheney. Democrats are ruthless, but they are united. They don’t have these Romney types. They don’t have ‘em. Must be wonderful to live like that.”
The informal straw poll conducted for the 2024 presidential election put Trump at the top with 70% of the vote. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis took 21%. When omitting Trump as a contender in the poll, DeSantis took 68% and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo secured 5%.
