Results of CHQ's Republican Presidential Primary Straw Poll

For the second week in a row, Congressman Ron Paul won's GOP presidential straw poll. However, Paul saw a drop of 2 percent, taking 35 percent of the week's total votes. With the exception of Mitt Romney (who dropped to 0 percent), the order of the GOP primary candidates stayed the same in terms of subscriber preference. Second place was Herman Cain (24 percent; down 4 percent), followed by Newt Gingrich (17 percent; up 6 percent), Rick Perry (12 percent; up 5 percent), Michele Bachmann (7 percent; up 1 percent), Rick Santorum (2 percent; down 3 percent), Gary Johnson (1 percent; no change), and "Other" (1 percent). Jon Huntsman and Mitt Romney both received one vote each; however, this did not register a reportable percentage of the votes.

Changes from the last week are marked "green" for positive changes, and "red" for negative changes.

Straw poll

I actually think Ron Paul's support is under-represented, because I know a few democrats who have registered republican JUST to vote for Ron Paul over Obama.  People like that wouldn't be caught dead on a conservative website, but they are unknowingly helping the conservative cause by voting for the most conservative candidate - Ron Paul!

Not a Surprise

People are catching on!  They are discovering the truth as they hear Ron Paul speak about economic and foreign policy issues which he has not wavered on in 35+ years.

People are beginning to love him!  The central bankers and planners hate him!
