Romney Wins CPAC Straw Poll

By on 2.11.12 | 4:01PM

The results for the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll:

38% - Mitt Romney

31% - Rick Santorum

15% - Newt Gingrich

12% - Ron Paul

Jim may be surprised, but I'm actually not: The crowd for Romney's speech was more enthusiastic than the crowd for Santorum's or Gingrich's, and the students waving Romney signs and chanting "Mitt! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!" in the hall outside the ballroom yesterday outnumbered the ones waving Santorum signs and trying to drown out their counterparts with "Flip!-Flop! Flip!-Flop!" I suspect the Romney campaign made a quiet effort to turn out their supporters.
