JD Vance Runaway Frontrunner For VP in New Poll

Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) was the clear frontrunner to become Donald Trump’s running mate, following a poll of nearly 2,000 attendees at the Turning Point Action People’s Convention on Sunday in Detroit, MI.

Vance was the choice of 43% of those surveyed with Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) placing a distant second, followed by Marco Rubio (R-FL) and North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum.

The poll was conducted by Big Data Poll for Turning Point Action, the grassroots movement established by Charlie Kirk.

Kirk described Vance as the clear winner, telling DailyMail.com: “He has consistently been one of President Trump’s most capable and articulate defenders and surrogates and he speaks right to the Midwest Americans who attended our Detroit conference.”

Vance, who was previously an outspoken critic of Trump, has become one of Trump’s most reliable allies and an advocate for Trump’s America First policies.

When asked what a vice president could do to advance Trump’s agenda, Vance responded with a call to show loyalty, saying: “There are a lot of smart good people that Trump is looking at, but it also applies to our senators. It applies to our congressmen and women too. We need to have people who are supporting Trump not trying to stab him in the back. It’s very very simple.”

Turning Point has emerged as a growing influence for the MAGA movement as well as for GOP politics.

Founder Charlie Kirk has made it clear that he believes Vance would be the perfect choice for VP, telling the Daily Mail, “He is young. He has an amazing family and is the only veteran that is being considered of the finalists. But most importantly, he’s a incredibly popular, successful politician from the region of the world where Donald Trump needs to win, which is the Rust Belt.”

Though the field of potential vice presidential picks has narrowed, Trump is known for keeping people guessing and is not above throwing the occasional curveball.
