Herman Cain and Ron Paul won a pair of tea party straw polls Sunday, a show of strength among grassroots activists for the long-shot presidential hopefuls.
Each captured a different straw poll at the close of the Tea Party Patriots policy summit in Phoenix. Paul, the longtime Texas congressman, easily won a larger online poll of tea party activists with 49 percent of the vote, followed by 12 percent for Cain and 9 percent for Sarah Palin. Cain, the Atlanta businessman, won the straw poll of activists taken at the summit itself, taking 22 percent of the vote. Tim Pawlenty won 16 percent of the vote in that poll, and Ron Paul had 15 percent.
I think more important than who won this particular straw poll is the fact that grass roots activists aren’t going to sleep. They want people to run for office who aren’t considered part of RINO-World and personally, I think that is just fine.
