President Trump has conservatives on his side, according to a new CPAC straw poll.
The straw poll consisting of twelve questions was conducted on Saturday at the CPAC summit, and it appears 86% of the conservative attendees back the president and his administration, agreeing that he is “realigning” the movement.
President Trump’s speech was the main event of the four-day summit, and, according to the event’s main organizer, Matt Schlepp, who is also chairman of the American Conservative Union, the Trump administration is finally doing what needs to be done in America, especially in reforming the tax code.
Schlepp said, “Donald Trump is actually doing things the conservative movement wants to get done.”
According to Fox News, the announcement of the results of the poll, conducted by McLaughlin & Associates, was the last event held at CPAC and the audience cheered loudly when it heard that “91 percent of respondents favored the federal government cutting off federal funds to any so-called “sanctuary” city, county or public college that refuses to cooperate with state and federal officials to enforce immigration laws.”
However, the loudest cheers came after the announcement that 33% of respondents said they are in favor of Trump’s promise to reform the tax code.
