Ron Paul continues to place in the top 3 in virtually every straw poll conducted. This one, in his home state of Texas, was only for voters who have either been delegates or alternates to a state or national convention recently.
Duncan Hunter came in first, with Fred Thompson second. No candidate outside the top 3 got more than single digits. Duncan Hunter, famous for his strong Border Security stance did well in the border state, and Fred Thompson, famous for not being a candidate yet, but with strong southern values, also did well.
Ron Paul’s third in his home state isn’t that surprising as these are strong party advocates, and Ron Paul isn’t a good Republican by any stretch. Placing third is actually probably a good barometer of his conservative values. Texan’s aren’t so much conservative, as they are rural, xenophobic, and big business republicans.
Who am I kidding. If you can only muck up a weak third in your home state you don’t have issues…you have become an issue. Time to fold the tent Ron. You have again deteriorated into a no hoper.
Who is Duncan Hunter? No, I’m asking…who is he? this is really kind of funny when you look at it.
