Ron is a master at winning those straw polls.
“In second place was Herman Cain with 23 percent of the vote,”
37% for Ron Paul? LOL
Guess that’s the best the value voters could come up with. The buses were busy today.
Yea a values poll where Ron thinks homosexuals should marry, homosexuals should serve openly, crack houses next to a elementary school etc
Yea I’m sure that is great values there Ron.
“Rounding out the pack were Mitt Romney with 4 percent, Newt Gingrich with 3 percent and Jon Huntsman with 0 percent.”
I’ve never been able to figure out what the objective is of these straw polls. LOL!
A little VVS history from Wiki...
2007: Mitt Romney placed first with almost 28% of a total of 5,776 votes cast.
2008: No straw poll was held since the Republican nominee for the 2008 presidential election, John McCain, was already decided. Instead, speakers and attendees expressed support for McCain and his running mate, Sarah Palin.
2009: Mike Huckabee won with 28% of the vote.
2010: Mike Pence won with 24% of the vote.
LOL You know what , you have a great point , straw poll what is it good for?
Hope you’re having a good weekend, hopefully the rain we’re getting here will move up to NY city and wash the great unwashed
I hope you're having a good Columbus Day weekend also!
Columbus day doesn’t really get celebrated here but we’ll be having a nice weekend even though the weather is awful.
Think we’ll see an increase due to the media covering this more and more of them getting on sites like this promoting it.
Ron Paul winning all these straw polls makes no sense. What’s with this?
Straw Polls just poll the number of fanatics who care enough to show up at a certain place at a certain time.
They are as relevant to the Real World as polls at a Star Trek Convention asking if Klingons or Romulans are better fighters in a war in outer space.
It's what happens when straw votes.
I don’t know why they continue to hold these nonsensical straw polls.
Ron is awesome...he wins all the straw polls then during the real polls that count in the voting booth...he gets .00001%
Ive never been able to figure out what the objective is of these straw polls. LOL!The Florida straw poll a couple of weeks ago certainly pushed Herman Cain into the limelight. It was enough to completely change the dynamics of the race.
Ron Paul is CRAZY and dangerous.
Still, he is better than Obama so that shows how undesirable is Obama.
Embarrassing result for Rick Perry. 8%? Perry is a joke.
Ron Paul and huntsman are the two that REALLY make me uneasy.
