GOP activists are split on whether they want Donald Trump to seek the presidency again in 2024.

Even if he does, a plurality preferred Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the party’s presidential nomination in two years, according to a straw poll at this weekend’s state convention.

Forty-three percent (141 votes) of those participating in the straw poll said they want Trump to run again, while just less than 32 percent (103) were opposed and 22 percent (72) indicated they were unsure.

Viewing a potential 2024 GOP field, nearly 38 percent (122) backed DeSantis. Trump was second at 32 percent (104), while former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley was a distant third at just more than 7 percent (24).

No one else cracked 5 percent.
