Subject: [apfn-1] Iowa Straw Poll results
Date: Sat, 11 Aug 2007 21:25:26 -0500
From: Jon Roland jon.roland@constitution.org


Although we might wish that Ron Paul had come in first, this fifth place is actually an encouraging result, because it indicates momentum and that he is ahead of others dubbed "front runners" by the media, such as McCain and Guiliani. With the others having only regional appeal, it could emerge into a contest between Paul and Romney. The only other contender might become Fred Thompson if he actually enters the race, but this result cannot be encouraging to him.

1. Gov Mitt Romney, 4516 votes, 31.6%.
2. Gov. Mike Huckabee, 2587 votes, 18.1%
3. Sen. Sam Brownback, 2192 votes, 15.3%
4. Tom Tancredo, 1961 votes, 13.7%.
5. Ron Paul, 1305 votes, 9.1%
6. Tommy Thompson, 1,009 votes, 7.3%
7. Fred Thompson, 231 votes, 1.6%.
8. Rudy Giuliani, 183 votes, 1.3%
9. Duncan Hunter, 174 votes, 1.2%.
10. John McCain, 101 votes, 0.7%.
11. John Cox, 41 votes, 0.1%.

Iowa state auditor David Vaudt unofficially certified the results.

14,302 ballots were cast.
