Ron Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll

And results in more whining from RedState.

For 3 years, neo-con Mitt Romney won the CPAC straw poll — 2007, 2008, and 2009. In the key year of 2008, despite victory, fellow neo-con John McCain was nominated.

This year, actual Conservative Ron Paul breaks neo-con Mitt Romney’s winning streak. Clearly Romney realized he was not getting a good return on his investment of organizing voters to vote — a regular phenomenon among potential candidates.

2,395 CPAC registrants voted in the CPAC poll. It’s the largest number of votes in CPAC straw polling history, but but less than 25% of the total turnout at CPAC.

48% of the votes cast were from students. 32% were from paying non-student individuals.

Paul-31%
Romney-22%
Palin-7%
Pawlenty-6%
Pence-5%
Huckabee and Gingrich-4%
Daniels-2%

We are amazed with Ron Paul for his amazing showing in these polls, and hope this translates into momentium, which I think it will. Your thoughts.
