The 2024 right-wing influencer primary heats up

March 18, 2023

So, Shelby Talcott and I asked dozens of GOP strategists to identify who had the most clout with Republican voters. The most-cited influencer, by far: Jack Posobiec, who progressives mostly associate with the 2016 Pizzagate conspiracy theory, and Republicans identify as a powerful, narrative-shaping voice. The Colorado-based channel was repeatedly named as a source that highly active GOP voters watched closely. What did was Bannon’s CPAC speech this month, sharing the widespread Trump influencer view that Fox News was out to beat the former president and didn’t deserve attention from conservatives. “Well, we've deemed that you're not going to have a network.”Both Trump and DeSantis have courted the influencers.
