DISASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK - August 16, 2011 - Texas governor Rick Perry wins the ATS Republican Straw poll in commanding fashion with more than five percent more votes than his closest rival, Michelle Bachmann. Other top finishers in this early season online straw poll include Sarah Palin (6.6%), Herman Cain (6.4%), and Mitt Romney (5.5%).

The highly-popular news and alternative opinion web site, AboveTopSecret.com (known as ATS), operated an online straw poll, audited by the disAssociated Press and another independent auditing firm. The poll asked respondents to pick a candidate, then indicate why they prefer that specific candidate. The number-one reason pollers picked Rick Perry was his core economic policy, indicating potential voters are frustrated with the state of the national economy.

Others who performed well, and show promise as the campaign season picks up, are Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman. Non of the candidates were available for comment.

Fringe Libertarian candidate Ron Paul showed well in the polling, but we're not allowed to talk about him.

Actual Straw Poll Results are Below:





This is satire and does not represent actual straw poll results.

Fudge Ron Paul is the only candidate who doesn't sound like a used cars salesman. It would be interesting to see if Ron Paul was President of the U.S.

I missed the poll....were there rules? Why were we not allowed to talk about Ron Paul? I do dislike politics, politicians are mostly all the same, sad really. I soo hope Ron Paul is our next President!

I almost channeled that freak-out dude from April 1st.

Well-done.

And if you're listening freak-out dude, thanks a million. It still makes me laugh. Primarily because I was right behind you until I got pulled into a meeting that day.

Thanks for the laugh - I knew from the moment I saw the title what was going on though. There is 0% chance, in my mind, that ATS'ers pick Perry.

Great sense of humor guys.

I actually took this survey even though I am Canadian.

Are you pulling an election 2000 Florida on us though? Calling the race before the voting has closed? Electioneering??!!

April Fools? O, wait....its August!

Thanks for the laugh, but isn't it funny how Rick Perry is a comical joke to us but to the rest of the US he is actually a viable candidate?

Now thats funny!
