Results Are in on the PJ Media/Townhall GOP Presidential Straw Poll!

Three weeks ago, PJ Media and Townhall Media launched our first GOP presidential straw poll of this election cycle. With nearly 40,000 individual votes cast, representing all fifty states and the District of Columbia, Donald Trump leads the field at 51.92%. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis landed in second place with 38.05% of the vote. All the other declared candidates garnered less than 4%. In fact, all the other candidates combined got just over 10%.


At PJ Media, voters favored DeSantis by a six-point margin—48.77 to 42.17

While a straw poll isn’t scientific, it is representative of the millions of conservative voters who visit PJ Media and other sites in the Townhall Media family every day—PJ Media, RedState, Townhall, Twitchy, HotAir, and Bearing Arms.

Trump leads in all the early primary states: Iowa (45-39%), New Hampshire (48-36%), S. Carolina (56-32%), and Nevada (53-37%).

The PJ Media/Townhall straw poll will remain open (one vote per person per 30 days) in the lead-up to the first GOP primary debate in August. The next round of results will be announced on August 8. Click here to vote now!
