Romney Wins New Hampshire Presidential Straw Poll

The State GOP Conference held a straw poll today for president.   The very odd thing about this poll is that they also elected the party chair who was the Tea Party Candidate.  A very mixed message indeed.  No one in my Tea Party group would back Romney.  Romneycare is going to be a huge hurdle for him to get over.  But, this is going to be good news for Herman Cain who came in second behind by only  1% of the vote.  The next closest was Ron Paul with 11% of the vote. 

With the New Hampshire primary being a year away, this doesn't mean all that much.  But, the fact that Herman Cain got such a large percentage of the vote does bode well that he will be able to raise some money to get his primary bid off the ground. 

Mitt Romney 35%

Ron Paul 11%

Tim Pawlenty 8%

Sarah Palin 7%

Michele Bachmann 5%

Jim DeMint 5%

Herman Cain 34% (I don't know if this number is right, another listing has this at 4% not 34%)

Chris Christie 3%

Rick Santorum 3%

Mitch Daniels 3%

Newt Gingrich 3%

Mike Huckabee 3%

Mike Pence 3%

Rudy Giuliani 2%

Judd Gregg 2%

Gary Johnson 2%

Other 2%

Donald Trump 1%

Haley Barbour 1%

Jon Huntsman 0%

John Thune 0%

One trouble Romney is his faith and I have to agree with you is his health care in Massachusetts. I personal don't have trouble with his faith and I know my point of view on health care wouldn't be taken kindly with most conservatives.
Out of this group I have liken to Ron Paul foreign policy and I don't see Mike Huckbee in this straw race.
Coffee is on.

Sounds like RINOs picking RINOs to me.
