Gov. Gary Johnson Places 3rd In CPAC Straw Poll; 1st At Republican Liberty Caucus ConventionFebruary 19, 2011Posted in Blog
There were two straw polls over the weekend whose results I would like to share with you. At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this weekend, Gov. Gary Johnson finished 3rd in the widely-reported 2012 presidential straw poll. Perhaps more impressively, Gov. Johnson was the top “second choice” presidential candidate of CPAC attendees from across the country.
Equally exciting, Gov. Johnson also handily won a straw poll conducted at the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) National Convention. These results far exceed the expectations laid out for Gov. Johnson in the mainstream media, and are particularly impressive considering that CPAC attendees only found out two days before the start of the conference that Gov. Johnson would have an opportunity to address them. (You may view Gov. Johnson’s speech here).
