Ron Paul Takes New Hampshire Young Republicans Straw Poll With 45% of Vote


LAKE JACKSON, Texas — It’s been a good week for Ron Paul: a statistical tie at the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa last Saturday, a thousand New Hampshire voters at the Concord, New Hampshire office opening Wednesday night, and today, a resounding victory in the New Hampshire Young Republicans Straw Poll in New Castle.

With 45% of the vote, Paul soundly beat his closest rivals at this traditional lobster bake, with Mitt Romney earning 10% of the vote, followed by Thaddeus McCotter and Rick Perry, tied at 8%.

Ron Paul may gather most of and win all the straw votes in the GOP practice election -- and he gets some people excited -- but the Republican leadership is freaking out -- members of the central committee swear they cannot and will never field any nomination aspirant that resembles a scarecrow in the corn field as the Republican Party's standard bearer this coming 2012 presidential election. Which means that all of these is only fun from now on, until it lasts.
