We asked you who you would vote for in 2024, and you spoke out! Thousands of you, spanning across all 50 states, told us who you want for President, whether the country is headed in the right direction, and which issues matter most to you. Because you took the first and only social conservative straw poll, you are the first in the nation to get the results! Here’s what you said in the Social Conservative Straw Poll.
Is the nation headed in the right direction? 98% of socially conservative voters said the country is headed in the “wrong direction” under Joe Biden’s leadership. When asked which of Biden’s initiatives were most harmful to the nation, the most popular answer was “Promoting abortion up to birth and using federal property to provide abortions.” In close second was “Shutting down domestic energy production.”

What could help? If something is wrong with the nation, of course, there must be something we can change. When asked to identify a single change that would have a positive impact on them and their family, about a third of socially conservative respondents (33.4%) selected “reducing inflation.” 28.4% selected “expanding domestic energy policy and lowering gas prices.”
Who should be our next President? If the presidential election were held today, 46.4% of socially conservative voters would choose Former President Donald Trump. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis follows closely behind with 40.5% of the vote. The next closest contender is Former Vice President Mike Pence, with 3.9% of the vote.
What do we think? Here’s what our CEO and President Craig DeRoche said: “The results are clear: social conservatives don’t like where America is headed under President Biden and his woke colleagues. That sentiment is nearly unanimous. Now, it’s a two-horse race for who will lead social conservatives to a better future. Even as that story unfolds, though, we know that so much of the important work starts with the leaders we choose today.”
How do we make a difference now? Craig is right: while the presidential election will matter immensely, we should consider what we can do right now. In today’s election, the lives and wellbeing of children in and outside the womb are on the line—along with the right of their parents to protect them.
