And this year’s CPAC straw poll winner is … Update: YAF expels Paul from board

posted at 6:00 pm on February 12, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Alternate headline: CPAC straw poll plumbs depths of irrelevance yet again.  How meaningless was the straw poll for preferred GOP presidential nominee?  The bronze-medal winner is Gary Johnson, the libertarian former governor of New Mexico.  That means that the libertarian vote actually got split this year, and wound up taking two out of three spots on the straw poll anyway:

For the second year in a row, Ron Paul won the presidential straw poll at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, earning 30 percent of the vote.

The Texas congressman, known for his libertarian views, ran for president in 2008 but was never a serious contender for the GOP nomination.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a 2008 GOP candidate who is expected to run again, came in second place with 23 percent of the vote. Romney won the previous three presidential straw polls before Paul snapped his streak last year. …

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie came in a distant third with 6 percent of the vote, followed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with 5 percent.

Considering the environment, Romney has to feel pretty good about gaining the silver medal.  After Christie, who’s not running, and Gingrich, who may be, the order of the poll results were:

  • Tim Pawlenty – 4%
  • Michele Bachmann – 4%
  • Mitch Daniels – 4%
  • Sarah Palin – 3%
  • Herman Cain – 2%

Of the five, only Palin didn’t appear at CPAC this year.  Finishing below them were two prominent potential candidates, Rick Santorum and Haly Barbour, who did and finished with 2% and 1% respectively for their efforts. When combining first and second choices, the onlychange in the order is that Bachmann and Pawlenty trade places.

In other straw poll results, a slim majority of straw poll respondents believe that Republican control of Congress will rein in federal spending (51%) and reduce government regulation (50%).  A plurality of 47% believe that the GOP can get Congress to cut federal taxes.  CPAC’s voters are more pessimistic about repealing ObamaCare and paying down the national debt, with a plurality of 40% on each question believing that Congress won’t accomplish either task.

Of course, when Ron Paul and Gary Johnson team up on the dream CPAC ticket, maybe they’ll get a little more optimistic ….

Update: Warner Todd Huston has more.

Update II, 2/13/11: Young Americans for Freedom (not to be confused with Young America’s Foundation) has expelled Ron Paul from their board over his positions on the war and his refusal to distance himself from 9/11 Truthers:

YAF’s concern with Rep. Paul stems from his delusional and disturbing alliance with the fringe Anti-War movement.

“It is a sad day in American history when a one-time conservative-libertarian stalwart has fallen more out of touch with America’s needs for national security than the current feeble and appeasing administration,” said YAF’s Senior National Director Jordan Marks.

Paul, who had served on the YAF Advisory Board for more than two decades, was awarded with YAF’s highest honor, the Guardian of Freedom award, an honor Rep. Paul has touted on his biography for many years. Only a decade ago, Dr. Paul praised YAF’s work on the House floor. Paul called YAF’s founding document, the Sharon Statement “a great document explicating the philosophy of freedom.”

Marks doesn’t pull any punches in his statement, either:

“Rep. Paul’s refusal to support our nation’s military and national security interests border on treason, aside from his failure to uphold his oath to the United States Constitution and defend our country and citizens against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” Marks continued.

“Rep. Paul has strayed to the left of Obama and allied himself with the radical anti-war left by laying the blame on America for the unprovoked attacks of Sept. 11th. Additionally, Rep. Paul has not condemned the 9/11 “Truther” conspiracy theorists that support him, and he has repeatedly insisted, that the United States not bring justice to those who have murdered thousands of our civilians and soldiers at home and abroad. This is simply unacceptable. Clearly Rep. Paul cares more about a doomed presidential run than he does our country,” Marks added.

I didn’t add this to the post yesterday because I didn’t think it amounted to much, except for a chance to beat up Ron Paul a bit.  Commenters have noted the expulsion on other threads, however, and since this post will ride on top for a while, it seemed like a good place to note the expulsion.  It certainly qualifies as a stinging rebuke.

A replica white house is built on a set. Ron Paul is woken up and told he won the election and is now president. We swear him in and start the “press conference”. Bonus, same story told to Alex Jones, who is “hired” to be his press secretary.

But this isn’t a serious barometer of the 2012 GOP nomination race.

At CPAC–I met Mr. Morrissey–and elsewhere, discussions rage as to how to turn young people onto conservatism. Well, perhaps this is what happen when you do: you get libertarians, and para-liberterians.

Being a conservative is harder than being a liberal or leftist. When you accept only part of the conservative package, you get libertarians and Paulbots. Is that an improvement over getting liberals and leftists? Probably, but I’m not sure.

ParisParamus on February 12, 2011 at 6:37 PM

Here is Ron Paul stating he is to busy to pursue the “truth” about 9/11…you know…that Bush did it:

http://sayanythingblog.com/entry/ron_paul_still_pandering_to_9_11_truthers/

Troofer:

Ok and one last thing. Why don’t you come out about the truth about 9/11?

[Pause...]

Ron Paul:

Because I can’t handle the controversy. I have the IIF, the Federal Reserve to deal with, and the IRS to deal with. Because, no I just have work— too many things on my plate. Because I just have too much to do.

Here is Ron Paul on the House floor claiming Bush was a war criminal who green lighted Saddam to invade Kuwait in some grand Neo-con scheme.

http://www.c-spanvideo.org/videoLibrary/clip.php?appid=599464418

“The SPEAKER pro tempore.

Under a previous order of the House, the gentleman from Texas (Mr. Paul) is recognized for 5 minutes.

Mr. PAUL. Mr. Speaker
, how did the 20-year war get started?

It had been long assumed that the United States Government, shortly before Iraq invaded Kuwait in August of 1990, gave Saddam Hussein a green light to attack. A State Department cable recently published by WikiLeaks confirmed that U.S. Ambassador April Glaspie did indeed have a conversation with Saddam Hussein one week prior to Iraq’s August 1, 1990, invasion of Kuwait.

The secrecy of the memo was designed to hide the truth from the American people and keep our government from being embarrassed. This was the initial event that had led to so much death and destruction–not to mention the financial costs–these past 20 years.

I have that problem too but my husband says that I have choice:
I can have 2 cats and one husband-OR I can have 3 cats.
I’ve settled on the former…for now.
*smirk*

Mine called the SPCA before I got there and laid down the law. “She’s coming for ONE cat. No dogs,giraffes,buffalo,or whatever special you are running.” Damn spoilsport.

The Sacraments are important…
I don’t understand what part of Jesus said non-Sacramental churches are missing.

It’s the isolationism that’s part and parcel of the mania that scares me.

Look, polls have been showing for years that young people have been slipping away from the Republican party and the conservative movement. Say what you will about Ron Paul, but his campaign has been getting young passionate about Liberty, talking about the Constitution and limited government, and, importantly, registering Republican. We need young people if we’re going to ‘win the future’, and Ron Paul is delivering them.

Here is Ron Paul on the House floor claiming Bush was a war criminal who green lighted Saddam to invade Kuwait in some grand Neo-con scheme.

No wonder, he is so enamored with Julian Assange.

fourdeucer on February 12, 2011 at 7:07 PM

I wonder if Paul can be redistricted out of office? tejas does have to find room for 4 more Congresscritters and maybe they can “split” his district in such a way that Paul is retired…
