All this does is prove beyond any doubt that CPAC is no longer conservative.

You’re so right, wagglebee!

I predicted that he would do well and I was right.

Last night was my clue. Lots of brats on hand.

How can anybody trust libertarians when their favorite
“son” loads up legislation that he knows will pass and
gives the pork while giggling “I voted against it.”?

Help me here? I listened as much as possible to the speakers this week and found them to be pretty conservative what is it that some of you are having a problem with, just confused. Is this one of the reasons Palin did not go?

I guess the republican party is in worse shape then I thought. I will not support mitt, ron is probably not electable and Sarah is supporting mccain.

this explains the pro-gay booing. The audience is totally stacked with these people.

A lot of ordinary conservatives didn’t attend this one.

Actually all it proves is all “straw” polls are irrelvant and useless, and should be utterly ignored (along with ALL online polls) by anyone with two brain cells to rub together.

I thought CPAC was for conservatives? Ron Paul is a isolationist, antisemitic, racist peacecreep like Cindy Sheehan, Cynthia McKinney, International ANSWER and Code Pink!!

Vote time was from Thurs to Fri @ 1pm

Not an accurate representation at all, IMO.

Ron Paul is a libertarian truther (not to mention the fact that he will be 77 years old in 2012.)

Mitt is a liberal RINO who sticks his finger in the wind and says whatever he thinks his audience wants to hear.

Sarah is a true conservative who terrifies the left and that is why they are push polling to make her seem unpopular.

clearly not a conservative gathering

When Romney beats Palin, then the movement has been co-opted.

What a sham!

Looks like 7600 attendees knew that voting in this poll was meaningless...

I Glad Sarah didn’t go to this. If I am correct it was scheduling and the fact Todd is racing right now. The Bircher my had some thing to do with it as well.

“Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Pain is turning down an invitation to speak at one high-profile conservative gathering while accepting another.

Palin is declining an invitation to address the Conservative Political Action Conference next month because, a source said, she does not want to be affiliated with the longtime organizer of the traditional movement confab.”

“While Palin was turning down CPAC, she accepted an invitation to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans this April.”

..this straw poll and CPAC are complete garbage

Sarah Palin, with about 20 minutes notice, could pack out a stadium of 50,000--the others couldn't draw flies...
