CPAC 2010 Straw Poll Results--Ron Paul Wins Big!
Today at CPAC 2010, a straw poll for their 2012 Presidential Candidate delivered a huge victory to Texas Representative Ron Paul. Here are the percentages:
Ron Paul: 31%;
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney: 22%;
Sarah Palin: 7%;
Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty: 6%;
Tied for 5th place were Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee at 4% each.
What does this mean in the grand scheme of GOP politics? Not much. But it does draw some attention to each of these candidates.
First, the warring GOP factions must come together with some leadership. Not having a single leader will lead the party once again to defeat.
Let the games begin!
