The Conservative Political Action Conference is well known for their annual straw poll, in which the opinion of their Conservative attendees is gauged through a simple question, "Who would you vote for as the next Republican nominee for President", a leading indicator in Conservative opinion and political movement.
- CPAC 2007 - Mitt Romney - 21%, Rudy Guiliani - 17%, Sam Brownback - 15%, Newt Gingrich - 14% and John McCain - 12%. Another choice - 21%
- CPAC 2008 - Mitt Romney - 35%, John McCain - 34%, Mike Huckabee -12% and Ron Paul - 12%. Another choice - 7%
- CPAC 2009 - Mitt Romney - 20%, Bobby Jindal - 14%, Ron Paul - 13%, Sarah Palin - 13%, Newt Gingrich - 10%, Mike Huckabee - 7% and Mark Sanford - 4%. Another choice - 15%
Romney has entered complete political silence, Jindal has been involved with Louisiana affairs without dabbling into national politics, Paul is Paul, Palin has released a best selling book, Gingrich has alienated Conservatives across the land, Huckabee released a cop killer, Sanford is a whore and will Scott Brown receive some support.
I have no idea what's gonna happen! This could be one of the most interesting political polls to come out in 2010, because our Conservative movement was divided amongst seven candidates last Winter, however, the political climate has grown uncertain with the Presidential Primaries just under 22 months from now, in addition to several perspective candidates that were unknown last year.
I do know one thing, I am calling on all CPAC attendees to vote Senator Jim DeMint for the Republican nomination.
