(RoyalPatriot.com )- The extreme left media is in a tizzy. Gavin Newsom, the governor of California, came out on top in a straw poll by Turning Point USA to determine which Democratic candidates were the most “feared” by conservatives in 2024.
Turning Point USA, a conservative youth group founded by Charlie Kirk, held its national convention in Tampa over the weekend. Speakers included former president Donald Trump, congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, and congressman Matt Gaetz, among many others.
According to reports, Turning Point asked guests in a straw poll which Democrat they felt would be hardest to beat in 2024. Gavin Newsom was mentioned by 30% of respondents, while Michelle Obama, the former first lady, came in a distant second with 13% despite having made no mention of any political aspirations. With 10%, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders tied for third place. The Trafalgar Group performed the polling, which the New York Post reported.
Reports show President Joe Biden has a low support rating across the country, and many Democrats are openly speculating about whether he will seek reelection.
Newsom made headlines in the past month when he wasted roughly $100k on an ad buy in Florida for a failed attempt to troll Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
I hope DeSantis sent Newsom a thank-you note for all the laughs and free advertising.
Left-leaning media did not mention that the young conservatives overwhelmingly chose former President Donald Trump over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in a straw poll at the summit in the Sunshine State.
At the Turning Point USA event, 78.7% of participants said they would support Trump if the former president ran for re-election in 2024, while 19% said they would support DeSantis. Every other Republican fell well short.
Kristi Noem, the governor of South Dakota, came in closest with 1 percent, followed by Mike Pompeo, the former secretary of state, with 0.5 percent, and Sen. Ted Cruz, the senator from Texas, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley, and former Vice President Mike Pence, each with 0.3 percent.
