Do you follow politics much? I have not been keeping up but I recently saw that Ron Paul has been chosen as the winner of the CPAC 2011 Straw Poll. This means that he is a leading republican candidate in the upcoming year. CPAC stands for Conservative Political Action Conference. This means that all of the conservative politicians meet in Washington to discuss their current policies and future actions to improve their standing in the political world. Well they have lots and lots of speakers and then they will discuss what is going on in the conservative political world.
Some of the speakers who attended the event included:
Rep. Michele Bachmann Gov. Haley Barbour Hon. John Bolton Andrew Breitbart Arthur Brooks Herman Cain Ann Coulter Gov. Mitch Daniels Hon. Newt Gingrich David Horowitz Wayne LaPierre Sen. Mike Lee Sen. Mitch McConnell Rep. Ron Paul Sen. Rand Paul Hon. Tim Pawlenty Gov. Rick Perry Hon. Mitt Romney Hon. Donald Rumsfeld Rep. Paul Ryan Hon. Rick Santorum Phyllis Schlafly Sen. John Thune Rep. Allen West
There are some pretty big names here that are to be considered worthy of a CPAC poll winner however it was Ron Paul that won out. He also won last years poll for CPAC 2010. Ron has ran for president several times under the independent label but perhaps in 2012 he will be a leading Republican candidate. 2 years in a row of winning the Conservative Political Action Conference poll is pretty darn good if you want to run under the conservative’s party in 2012.
I am wondering what your thoughts are on this poll. Should Ron Paul have won this CPAC 2011 Poll? (Vote and win a Free iPad!)
