Conservative Straw Poll--Giuliani Out; Romney, Huckabee, Paul Top

It also states in the article that "Romney's campaign actively petitioned supporters to vote online whether or not they had attended the conference." So that would be Romney "slamming the polls", not Ron Paul, wouldn't it?

Note Ron Paul dashed both Giuliani and Fred Thompson. Note as well that
"permanent tax reductions" and taxes are two of the leading values issues, as well as abortion opposition and defending marriage (something Presidents actually have little influence legally upon, more so the states).

This shows that Ron Paul is a serious contender. It also shows with Huckabee that republican voters are dissatisfied with Giuliani. Too bad people are blind to Huckabee's lack of constitutional integrity, or lack of a lower tax plan (Paul would eliminate the Income Tax entirely!), and fail to see that unjust war (the neocon's Iraq, Iran, Syria plan) is also murder, more so than abortion! This shows the ignorance and biblical illiteracy of "values voters'" judgment.
