Governor Palin easily handles Politico's Straw Poll: Who should have won the presidential straw poll at the Values Voter Summit? by a very very wide margin. The Governor took a overwhelming majority of 55% to Governor Romney’s 15% and Governor Huckabee’s 10%. A total of 24,046 votes were cast.
Politico created this poll to demostrate that in a controlled environment, like the Values Voter Summit, poll results can be skewed in anyones favor. The Summit was attended by Romney, Huckabee and Pawlenty along with many of their supporters and, as expected, the Values Voter Summit poll was in their favor. I also recall problems with the 2009 CPAC presidential poll. Romney supporters voted often and frequently before CPAC officials caught on, 24 hours later, and changed the registration rule to only a single vote per person.
