Ron Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll



Ron Paul's CPAC Speech, with boisterous intro...
***********************************

Ron Paul wins the CPAC straw poll with 31%, ending Mitt Romney's three year string of victories at the event. Romney came in second place this year with 22%. Sarah Palin did not attend the event, and garnered only 7% of the vote. Mike Huckabee trailed with 4%

That is still terrible regardless of if Palin was there or not. Paul won because so few of the attendees voted.

The largest number of votes in CPAC straw polling history, 2,395 voted, less than 25% of the total turnout at CPAC. From what I read there was a lot of booing when Paul was announced the winner.
This straw poll means nothing. Most winners never go on to win the GOP nomination.

Finally, some good news from the GOP! If only the Republicans had nominated Ron Paul when it mattered instead of just another GOP tool, we wouldn't be in the fix we're in today.

Romney won it for the last three years, and he was #2 for the GOP nomination.

I don't put TOO much stock in it, but winning it is better than losing it.

Very true Mark. I always marvel at how Ron Paul can get his people motivated and win things like this when no one thinks he can.

When his name was called there was a lot of booing. I think most of the people there who voted for him were the very young who are easily led without the needed maturity. Someone was booed because he objected the gay group attending. CPAC is a bunch of RINOS now.

More like fed up with the hypocrisy and self righteousness they see in the generation running the show today.

Thank God there is at least something positive on the horizon, if this nation survives the current mismanagement by both parties and their kool-aid slurping followers.
