Before some people decide to crap on this thread because 'straw polls don't matter'
They do matter.
Winning straw polls gives a glimpse of how a campaign and grassroots organize to win state caucuses.
Here is the best example.
Ron Paul campaign had such great organization, we had a statistical tie for first place in the Iowa straw poll, and as of late, in the Bloomberg
thread, Ron Paul is again statistically tied for first in a recent Iowa survey poll.
Ron Paul = solid voter base @ 19% and steadily rising
Cain = soft voter base @ 20% and dropping
Straw polls show the organization and strength of the grassroots efforts and who has won the most straw polls across the nation? Ron Paul
