President Donald J. Trump won the straw poll held at the Pray, Vote, Stand Summit hosted by the Family Research Council in Washington D.C. Trump received 63.9 percent of the vote. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was second with 27.3 percent. Nobody else had more than 2.2 percent.

Rep. Jim Banks said, “Donald Trump ran away with the [Family Research Council’s Pray Vote Stand] straw poll today. Social conservatives strongly support [President Donald Trump]. Most pro-life President ever and will be again.”

Trump spoke at the event on Friday night. Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, described Trump as “a man who fights for what he believes in.”

“He has fought for this country,” Perkins said. “He has fought for you and me. He has fought for the unborn in America.”

Trump said no president has fought for Christians as hard as Trump has.

“And I will keep fighting for Christians as hard as I can for four more years in the White House,” he said. “Americans of faith are not a threat to our country. Americans of faith are the soul of our country.”
