Trump, who rarely passes up an opportunity at one-upmanship, seized on the opportunity. Trump walked centerstage to the microphone and, as the crowd continued to chant, “We love Trump,” turned to ask Ralph Reed, founder and chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, a question. “Were your other candidates treated this way? I don’t think so. Actually, I saw one who was booed off the stage.” It is interesting to note that Trump didn’t use Christie’s name or invent a new moniker for him. It would have been easy to do. Could Trump be working on a more disciplined approach? Time will tell.
“You can boo all you want.”Chris Christie gets the most attention he’s had in years after getting booed at the Road to Majority conference yesterday.

According to New York Daily News, the three-day event had over 50 speakers taking the stage, including nearly a dozen Republican presidential candidates, including Florida GOP Governor and presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis. Photojournalist Al Drago tweeted that the conference is the “largest public policy gathering of conservative and Christian activists in the nation.”

Though DeSantis did receive a warm welcome from conference attendees, it was lukewarm when compared to Trump’s. Trump’s popularity isn’t confined to conservative Christians. The latest Five Thirty-Eight poll shows Trump garnering 52.5 percent of the support of Republican voters. DeSantis comes in at a distant 21.3 percent. The remainder of the ever-increasing crowd fails to break into double digits. Christie weighs in at a scanty 2.2 percent — one might say he’s lost so much political weight that he is now starving to death. There’s still a long way to go before the primaries. A lot could happen. The left is out to destroy Trump in any way they can. Marxists despise the originality inherent in one-of-a-kind men and women. They hate Trump because they fear him. It is safe to say that many establishment Republicans like Christie and other RINOs feel the same. Conservative Christians, on the other hand, if the Faith and Freedom Coalition are any indicator, love Trump. They see him as a true original who is tough enough to stand up for the values they hold near and dear. So far, leftists and the RINOs haven’t been able to grind Trump down. It is clear that conservative Christians are praying that he can stay the course. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
