FOXNews.com - Ron Paul Wins Presidential Straw Poll at CPAC

I don't know what this means, if anything, but Ron Paul is now the winner of CPAC's straw poll, other than to show that 2012 is a long way away.

Here's his entire speech by the way, pretty good, parts one, two and three.....

Part two.... part three.
FOXNews.com -: "Ron Paul has ended Mitt Romney's three-year run as conservatives' favorite for president, taking 31 percent of the vote in the Conservative Political Action Conference's annual straw poll.

Paul, a Republican congressman from Texas known for his libertarian views, ran for president in 2008 but was never a serious contender for the GOP nomination.

Romney, former Massachusetts governor and also a 2008 GOP candidate, has won the last three presidential straw polls at the annual conference. This year, he came in second, with 22 percent.

Sarah Palin, who didn't attend the conference, was a distant third in the straw poll, with 7 percent, followed by Tim Pawlenty, the Minnesota governor, and Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana.

The straw poll is not binding -- and not necessarily a good forecaster, given that in 2008, John McCain went on to take the party's nomination over Romney.

Results of this year's poll were announced just as the crowd prepared for the conference's keynote speaker, Fox News host Glenn Beck." more

This article talked about his domination of the event, drawing the largest crowds and he's done that before and frankly it just could point to the fact that more republicans are moving away from the party towards tea party libertarianism is on the rise.

Ron Paul dominates CPAC with largest, loudest audience  "Did Ron Paul just launch his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012?

To anyone who watched any of the other Republican stars give their speeches at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference, the difference between Paul and the rest was clearly one of enthusiasm and volume. Indeed, it seems objective to report that the libertarian-leaning doctor from Texas was greeted more like a rock star than a politician.

And, Politico notes, he was the only speaker at CPAC to completely fill the convention hall."  more
