Rand Paul wins CPAC straw poll, Rubio 2nd.

LINK

quote:

Sen. Rand Paul won the 2013 Washington Times-CPAC presidential preference straw poll Saturday, and Sen. Marco Rubio was a close second, easily outdistancing the rest of the field and signaling the rise of a new generation of conservative leaders who will take the Republican Party into the 2016 election.


Mr. Paul won 25 percent of the vote

Mr. Rubio collected 23 percent

Former Sen. Rick Santorum was third with just 8 percent (Will this guy please just go away)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — who was not invited to speak at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference — was next with 7 percent

Rep. Paul D. Ryan, the GOP’s vice presidential nominee last year, was fifth with 6 percent.

Ted Cruz came in with 4%, but this poll was taken before his speech

Dr. Carson came in 7th place

Surprised to see him so far back. I thought Rand's lead over Rubio would be a little bigger too.

Pretty decent field. I'm optimistic about 2016.

One problem though...

Rick Santorum needs to get the f*uck out.

I think he's smart enough to play the PR game with the media because what struck me was that during his filibuster, he managed to keep it mostly on topic and not come even close to hanging himself.

I can't wait to see what he's capable of.

He must have had a really good speech because I really don't see how he picks up 8%.

I used to like Rubio, he's done nothing. I thought I would like Rand Paul, but he gets on my nerves, he wants it too bad, too eager. BUT, Sen. Cruz is the one for me. I'm already on Paul's and Rubio's E-mail list. I thought they didn't share lists. I want to get on Cruz's site, if he has one yet. Paul's are everyday. Sandtorum needs to retire and stay in Penn.. Geaux Cruz. Get out of the UN and Dept. of Ed.. I Like him.

I really do love how much Cruz pisses off the left. He also wants to audit the fed and stop sending aid to foreign countries that hate us.

Wow.

Dude, early impressions of Cruz are pretty much "attention whore."

Yeah he went on about stuff you'd probably love, but once he mentioned that I knew he'd turn a lot of people off.

Another bought and paid for neocon, pandering to conservatives and now riding Rand's coattails. He'll never vote for defense/military cuts, he's a borderline theocrat, and he's not big on free speech either.

He's the social conservative candidate. He has a lot of built in support.

We'll really find out what Rand is made of if he's forced to take a stand on war with Iran.

What war? There is no reason for one. We were told about 5 months ago they weren't a threat. In fact your VP laughed and scoffed at such talk.

Surely you don't think Bibi and the neocons have given up on trying to pressure Obama into attacking Iran, do you?
