The largest annual gathering of conservatives gave President Donald Trump an overwhelming 93 percent approval in a straw poll. The group’s members only have one “little request” for the Republican President, though.

A record number of attendees came to the gathering of Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday and gave their strong boost of confidence and trust in Trump.

Trump also appeared before the conference, marking the second time he did so since assuming office.

Organizers estimate the attendees to the annual straw poll of CPAC to be around 1,155 people this year. The poll also found that 75 percent support Trump’s current immigration proposal. 79 percent, on the other hand, want congressional Republicans to do a better job of advancing his agenda- a 12-point increase from last year’s poll.

Veteran pollster Jim McLaughlin who conducted the survey over the course of the last three days as results were released on Saturday said: “The conservative movement has found a new leader.”

Only four percent of the CPAC attendees said GOP lawmakers should block the president from implementing certain elements of his populist agenda.

Those who overwhelmingly support and praise Trump has one request to ask of the President, however. Majority of the group said Trump should stop his incessant tweeting. They see his Twitter habits as his biggest “flaw.”

Forty percent of attendees admitted they want Trump to tweet less, while 35 percent said they want him to even increase his presence on social media.

Trump, true to form, immediately took to Twitter to express his appreciation for the poll’s results. The President tweeted: “Big CPAC straw poll results: 93% approve of the job President Trump is doing ( Thank you!).”

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="">February 24, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

At least three different codes are used in those tweets. Information, tech ops, confirmations. And some cool geometric designs. All of them together are by design. Each a fractal of the sum. learn
