Texas Rep. Ron Paul has won the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2012 presidential preference straw poll of 3,742 activists, the chairman of the huge annual gathering of conservative activists announced on Saturday.
The poll, sponsored this year for the first time by The Washington Times, is seen as one of the earliest tests of grassroots popularity among the partys dominant conservative wing, and Mr. Paul, who ran unsuccessfully for the nomination in 2008, has traditionally done well in the CPAC voting.
The Republican lawmaker, long a favorite of the partys libertarian wing, took 30 percent of the votes cast, followed by Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney with 23 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has said he will not be a candidate in 2012, and New Mexico former Gov. Gary Johnson tied for third, with 6 percent of the vote.

I am glad to know that Ron Paul is from the government and he is here to help.
The key word here is “straw poll”........
For cripes sakes, this is the bazillionth thread about this tonight.
Crazy PAC marginalizes itself.
WOW!!! This is like the 30th post about the Losertarian from Texas trying to give the election to the donkeys.
Ron Paul gave a decent speech. But his followers are nuts.
>> Doctor Ron Paul is our Man!! and his son is the VP!!
Hmmm... pidgin English...
You ain’t *from* here, are ya, boy.
Wow. Hallow should remember this is a straw poll. This is akin to playing “spin the bottle” to pick who becomes the GOP candidate LOL
A tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing......
You do know a straw poll means absolutely nothing; that Ron Paul won last time; and still he never got more than 4% in the primaries don't you?
So how does it feel to win a straw-poll jammed by a bunch of fudge-packers and college students useful idiots?
It's gonna be a BITCH when you come down from that high ....
It’s easy to win when you provide transportation and lodging for your groupies.
That is simply priceless.
Mary Jane and Abortions for all around!
Hey what else could Conservatives want than someone who supports
1) Isolationism in world relations
2) Legalization of some street drugs
4) Thinks we were in Irag for “the oil”
>>Wow. Hallow should remember this is a straw poll. This is akin to playing spin the bottle to pick who becomes the GOP candidate LOL<<
