In a straw poll conducted at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday showed former President Trump is favorited in the 2024 presidential primary. 59 percent of respondents said they would vote for Trump.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis came in second, at 28 percent, in the same survey. The poll is conducted every year at CPAC by secret ballot. No other candidates came remotely close to Trump and DeSantis; no other candidate made it to five percent.

Former Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was next with 2 percent. In a poll without Trump as a 2024 option, support for DeSantis rose to 61 percent. Pompeo’s percentage increased to 6 percent, which is the same percentage Donald Trump Jr. received.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and former South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem each received 3 percent of the vote. Former Vice President Mike Pence received 1 percent of the vote.

The three most important issues for attendees were election integrity (49 percent), immigration/border wall (48 percent) and constitutional rights (43 percent). Those polled also show an extreme concern for President Joe Biden.

A whopping 99 percent disapprove with President Biden’s performance, saying his “competence” is the greatest threat to America’s safety and national security. 61 percent say Biden’s “competence” is the greatest threat to America, with China coming in second at 35 percent and Russia comes in third at 3 percent.

    I agree that Trump and DeSantis are the Best candidates. A ticket with both of them would allow Trump to serve his second term and then have DeSantis serve as President for two succeeding terms. It will take years to clean up the corruption and destruction of the Far Left…
    I also would like to see Ted Cruz nominated for any Supreme Court opening and have Rand Paul and Kristi Noem serving in prominent capacities.

    Still, 41% of republicans are anti-Trump. Trump can’t win with the GOP… and even when he wins he won’t be able to govern with a RINO entourage… And that in the case the RINORATS allow him to be a candidate… and they are not doctoring again the elections… So many ifs…

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
