The BCRCC met at Ropewalk for the 2nd Debate. During the event, we took our own straw poll asking each of the attendings to select their first and second choice. Despite skipping the debate, Donald Trump was chosen by 53%. Vivek Ramaswamy pulled in 19% of votes to Ron DeSantis's 15%. Nikki Haley, Chris Christie and Tim Scott each received about 5%. We will hold more straw polls at our festival booths. Keep checking back to see more results with different crowds. Immediately after the debate, Pop & Politics held their podcast and hot take.
