Texas Rep. Ron Paul and former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain led a presidential straw poll among Tea Party members released on Sunday, with former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin trailing in third place.
In the poll, which surveyed about 1,600 members of the Tea Party Patriots group at a convention in Phoenix, Paul led with 581 votes as the preferred Republican candidate to run against President Obama in the 2012 presidential election. (Paul, a libertarian favorite, also won a presidential straw poll at February's Conservative Political Action Conference.)
Cain, a Georgia businessman and conservative columnist, followed with 256 votes.

Well he is going to run for the GOP if he keeps up and not as a third party candidate.
He didint run as a third party candidate last time.... i dont think he would do it this time.
and the people who keep saying he cant win are the ones who discourage others voting for him!
He'll never win if he keeps getting coverage like this

Thanks to outlets like ATS, AJ, genesis commincations network, and republic broadcasting, and shortwave stations like WWCR, people are waking up
Ron Pauls support is groundswell, unlike Obama who was chosen and hyped.
