Ron Paul Demolishes Arizona Straw Poll

I was just at the Arizona GOP State Convention and was thoroughly impressed by how many Ron Paul supporters came out. For every Romney or Gingrich supporter there were at least 20 for RP.

As you drove up to the event there where signs on the street as far as 2 miles away. Then at the parking lot entrance and entrance to the meeting there were sign wavers. It seems like 50% of the cars had RP bumper stickers!

Anyways, to vote in the straw poll cost $10. You could buy as many ballots as you wanted. The results should be out soon and I'd be shocked it we didn't win in a landslide.

UPDATE - RESULTS:

Nice Job!

I was disappointed, though, when I read the article. Again with the newsletters and how RP was not the frontrunner, but third in the state polls.

On a good note, I did see a poll on that page for the FL primary. RP leading that one with 72%. That made reading that negative article worthwile! Ya gotta wonder with numbers like the straw poll and the FL poll at the bottom of that page, who are they really polling in AZ?

Thanks for the update!

256 to 20 - one of those 256

You could buy as many ballots as you want?

Does that mean someone could buy a thousand ballots and vote a thousand times for someone other than RP?

Never had the opportunity to straw poll, so I really don't know how it works.

Yes, but at $10 a ballot it'd

Yes, but at $10 a ballot it'd get real expensive real fast. I was watching the table for a bit and the most I ever saw anyone buy was 4.

Your post reminded me

about the way the Romney campaign is paying people to go out in public and support him and thought that a lot of money could buy a lot of straw poll votes. Hope the good people of AZ do their part to keep it clean.

Please keep us posted. Thank you.

Sweet

It would be a big deal if we can finish strong there this year. Glad to know there is some organized support there
