Trump Beats DeSantis in Pray Vote Stand Summit Straw Poll

Former President Donald Trump beat Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) by more than 35 points in the Pray Vote Stand Summit straw poll released on Saturday.

The straw poll showed Trump with 63.9% and DeSantis with 27.3%, less than a day after both Florida men addressed the summit from the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C.

DeSantis’s speech emphasized how he did not close churches during the COVID-19 pandemic in the Sunshine State, while Trump touted plans to launch a special task force to investigate people who are “political prisoners” and have been persecuted by the Biden administration.

No other candidate received more than 3%.

Former Vice President Mike Pence got 2.2%, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) got 1.9%, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy got 1.7%, and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley got 1.5%.

The highest-finishing Democratic presidential candidate in the poll was President Joe Biden with 0.9%.

In the straw poll for Vice President, DeSantis led the field with 25.1%, Scott got 19.2%, Ramaswamy got 13.7%, and Haley got 12.5%.

No other candidate got more than 10%, with Trump receiving only 1.2% of the poll.

The pollster also says 17.4% of respondents wrote in a different candidate.

Trump is the clear front-runner in the Republican primary, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average, leading his next-closest opponent, DeSantis, by more than 40 points.
