Ron Paul Wins “Values Voter” Straw Poll

Ron Paul discusses his win in the "Values Voter Summit" straw poll in Washington.

Semi-libertarian and full-time curmudgeon Ron Paul won the straw poll at the GOP “Value Voters Summit” in Washington. Paul has won several previous GOP straw polls, which doesn’t keep the Republican party and the news media from treating him like a political joke.

Paul’s 37% win amongst “Value Voters” isn’t quite as impressive as his other wins, however, since “Value Votes” are discounted at 50% off. This still doesn’t explain how Paul got 732 votes at an event with only 600 registered attendees.
