The Evangelicals Re-emerge

Straw Poll:  Romney, Huckabee, Brownback

Gov Mitt Romney won the 2007 Ames straw poll, receiving 4516 votes, or 31%.

Gov. Mike Huckabee finished second with 2587 votes at 18.1%

3. Sen. Sam Brownback with 2192 votes and 15.3%.
4. Tom Tancredo with 1961 votes, 13.7%.
5. Ron Paul with 1305 votes, and 9.1%
6. Tommy Thompson, 1,039 votes, 7.3%
7. Fred Thomson with 203 votes.
8. Rudy Giuliani with 183 votes.
9. Duncan Hunter with 174 votes.
10. John McCain with 101 votes.
11. John Cox with 41 votes.

With Brownback and Huckabee being the obvious evangelical picks, it should be noted that their collective total is 4,779 – which exceeds Romney’s.

Most had wondered when the evangelicals would revolt against the Romney, Giuliani, McCain clan.
