I was really surprised that Ted Cruz did not win the straw poll..just at the mention of his name he got a huge applause..yet he had only 4 percent of the vote(With Sarah Palin at 3 percent) I guess the younger audience really loves Rand Paul
I wonder if his birth status is what kept him from getting more votes?

His dad won last time. The Paulbots usually get bussed in, so no one takes the poll very seriously.
It was likely a battle between Paul and Rubio. Those that don’t think Rubio goes far enough flocked to the candidate with a very strong base, Rand Paul. And those who don’t think a Rand Paul candidacy has a good chance in 2016 flocked to the other side, with Rubio.
Everyone else fell between the cracks.
The libertarians have been stuffing vote for this straw poll forever, Ron Paul won it how many times?
Gee, do ya suppose that may because the voters know he is ineligible?
Christie gets 7 percent and Sarah Palin gets 3 percent?
What kind of CPAC is this? Seems hardly Conservative.
I am not surprised. Rand Paul speaks calmly, logically, and without throwing bombs. The liberal MSM is having trouble attacking Rand. But MSM has no problem attacking Cruz.
nah we all know that the libertarians who pretend to be republicans were there who support his father yet again were there.
H;es going the same way as his father which I had hoped he would not but after hearing hsi stance on marriage and immigration and next will it be get rid of the CIA, FBI have any kind of drugs legal .
He might be better polished than his dad and better spoken but i have a feeling that he and his father want the GOP ot change to their views and that is not going to happen for me.
Shirley there are Pualtards out there spamming the polls for the son.
Ted Cruz could speak well till he is blue in the face. But the communists who currently run this country and their useful idiots in the MSM will not allow this CANADIAN BORN conservative run for president because of his birthplace. Meanwhile our _resident is a Kenyan born, Indonesia bred MARXIST ALIEN!
