This is going to be all over the web in, oh, 30 seconds or so, so I figured I'd announce it here at Mere-O as well.
The top four issues that voters said was important to them:
3) Tax cuts
4) Permanent tax relief for families.
Top four candidates in the straw poll results:
4) Fred Thompson 564 3) Ron Paul 865 2) Mike Huckabee 1565 1) Mitt Romney 1595
How many votes came from online and how many were live? There is NO WAY Romney got that many votes from the people here. Nor did Ron Paul. What this means is that for those who came to conference, Huck was the clear winner. That's the only takeaway value from the poll, but FRC is going to have a conference where they clarify the results.
