Ron Paul wins both tallies at GOP pres. straw poll in Iowa

Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) -– Ron Paul has won two separate tallies for the National Federation of Republican Assemblies Presidential Straw Poll.

Paul won both the Iowa voters-only count at the Saturday convention in Des Moines as well as the tally of non-Iowans who participated.

In the Iowa vote result, Paul took 82%. Following him were Herman Cain with 14.7%, Rick Santorum with 1%, Newt Gingrich with 0.9%, Michele Bachmann with 0.5%, Rick Perry with 0.5%, Gary Johnson with 0.2%, with Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman zero percent.

430 votes were cast in that tally.

In the tally of non-Iowans who voted, Paul won 26 votes followed by Cain at 25, Perry and Santorum tied at 16, Gingrich at 11, Bachmann at 6, Romney at 1 and Huntsman and Johnson with zero votes.

101 votes were cast in that count.

Though Paul won these tallies, the NFRA has not yet officially endorsed a candidate. Delegates to the convention will decide that later Saturday.
