As campus buzzed with the activity of the ABC News Presidential Debate, 1,223 Drake University students participated in one of the largest student straw polls this election cycle. Students were asked to pick their favorite Republican candidate. Among the Republican contenders, Ron Paul won the poll with 35 percent of the vote. Paul was followed by Mitt Romney (25 percent) and Newt Gingrich (10 percent).

This really shows how strong Ron Paul is with the young voters. Since this was a closed poll, they cannot say that it was "flooded" by Ron Paul supporters, this is genuine support.

It was surprising to see Mitt coming in with more than double the support that Gingrich, but a very good surprise at that
We will win Iowa, that's for sure. After that, Ron's support will be even stronger in other states and Gingrich's will be less, that is IF he hasn't already imploded. Just as the previous "front-runners" Bachmann, Perry, and Cain have.

So what's the Ron Paul straw poll win tally?

So, every straw poll that Paul wins, means absolutely nothing, yet when someone else wins one...its legit?

Ignorant much?

Funny, you never see Gingrich or Romney supporters making a thread every time one of them perform well in a meaningless straw poll.

The Ron Paul supporters are a very funny group. They make me laugh, and the fact that half of them are not even registered Republicans is hilarious.

But amazingly enough they we're coherent enough to stumble down to the voting area in their drug induced haze and accidentally mark enough ballots for Ron Paul to win.

Perhaps Ron Paul reads like Recces Pieces when you have double vision from smoking the whacky tobacco.

Or perhaps your a drive by poster trying to fool us that you have a semblance of if a grasp on reality.

Care to provide some sort of reference for any of your assertions?

Or are you just circling the block coming around to spray another volley of gibberish?

Why would you think that it is hilarious that many or Ron Paul supporters are not registered Republicans.

You do realize he is a Libertarian right?
The same beliefs that our founding fathers had.

I believe he;s gone.... gets scary for people when you spray a bunch of drivel and then have to actually back up your claims.

Because in many states, like Iowa, you actually have to be registered as a Republican to vote in the Republican primary. This kills Paul's chances.

Maybe because you never see them perform well in straw polls? I don't see what you're getting at.
Ron Paul haters always amuse me. They make up non-existent reasons as to why he wins polls or why to not support him and never give any source or anything to backup their claims.

Ahhh Carseller, ATS's premier Ron Paul basher. What , exactly, is your problem with Ron Paul? Do you not cherrish your personal freedom? Do you enjoy getting under people's skin. I see you in most, if not all Ron Paul threads spewing your verbal diarrhea. Like it's a sport for you. Who is your choice for the nomination or presidency? You probably don't even vote. So your words mean nothing. Ron Paul 2012

How many Anti-War, Pro-Drug people do you know who are registered as Republican?

It's called common sense, and it helps to have a grasp of recent history. Ron Paul supporters did the same thing just 4 short years ago. How soon we forget. But don't worry the Ron Paul 2016 movement will start soon, he will only be 80 years old by then.

While I don't support any of his crap I will defend his right to say it on these threads (in line with the TOS).....because I'm a Libertarian ! and fools make themselves readily apparent.

That's assuming all anti-war, pro-drug people are Ron Paul supporters, which is not true nor is it 100% absolute fact.

Did you just drop a fact bomb with zero evidence to back it up?


Must be trollin.

Funny indeed. Could be that there are not many Romney or Gingrich supporters here (or anywhere else for that matter), maybe?

Still mad Perry is down in the dirt, or what? Haters gonna hate was a meme invented with you in mind I think.

Whats with the sourness that I see in this thread about a Person who won the poll. Losers have more integrity when they dont make excuses and start throwing around names for no good reason other than they lost. You claim foul, yet if one person could foul, that means everyone was able to foul, so that still denies the logic anyways. Winners are winners until they become losers again. Cept this time, theres good reason for people
to have faith in a person that actually has a plan.
But thats not why he won the poll right?
Must be because people hate him so much and think he doesnt have the knowledge or experience in politics.
Last line was sarcasm for those that couldnt catch it.

Hes the real front runner, and everyone knows it.
