The CPAC Presidential Straw Poll

Tuesday, February 16, 2010 at 6:34 pm

Matt Lewis has the latest edition of the presidential straw poll to be distributed later this week to paying attendees of the annual CPAC conference. In presidential years, candidates often buy tickets for supporters in order to help them win these polls. Not coincidentally, the 2007, 2008, and 2009 winner of the CPAC poll was Mitt Romney.

New to the poll this year: Gov. Haley Barbour (R-Miss.), Gov. Mitch Daniels (R-Ind.), Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), and Rick Santorum.

People who appeared on last year’s ballot but have been cut this year: Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.), Gov. Charlie Crist (R-Fla.), and — for obvious reasons — Gov. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.).

CPAC straw poll ballot:

Haley Barbour

Mitch Daniels

Newt Gingrich

Mike Huckabee

Sarah Palin

Ron Paul

Tim Pawlenty

Mike Pence

Mitt Romney

Rick Santorum

John Thune

Other (write in)
