The third annual “Value Voters Summit,”a conference sponsored by the Family Research Council and other leading Christian conservative groups, kicks off tomorrow in Washington. Organizers have just released the names that will appear on a 2012 presidential straw poll:
Newt Gingrich
Mike Huckabee
Bobby Jindal
Sarah Palin
Ron Paul
Tim Pawlenty
Mike Pence
Mitt Romney
Rick Santorum
Huckabee, Pawlenty, Pence and Romney will all be appearing at the conference. Romney won the last straw poll, in 2007, after most of the GOP contenders, including Rudy Giuliani, appeared before the crowd. But Huckabee beat Romney among voters who actually voted in person — Romney was boosted by online voters. It was a minor harbinger of Romney’s defeat to the much less funded Huckabee in the Iowa caucuses.
