Cain Crushes Field In Midwest Leadership Conference Straw Poll

posted at 9:12 pm on October 8, 2011 by

The Midwest Leadership Conference – the biennial gathering of conservative and Republican activists and leaders from  Ohio, Missiouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Minnesota – just concluded its 2011 meeting in Bloomington, MN (a southern suburb of Minneapolis best known for the Mall of America).

The proceedings had a wide variety of keynote speakers – including Michael Reagan, son of the 40th President – and, in a first, one presidential candidate, Herman Cain, who followed Reagan via Skype.  Projected at the crowd via the big-screen TVs in the Grand Ballroom at the Bloomington Doubletree, Cain talked ran down the list of crises facing this country – culminating in the greatest crisis of all, a leadership crisis.

And then, the conference concluded with its first-ever straw poll.

And here are the results, in ascending order:

  • 0.2% Johnson
  • 0.9% Huntsman
  • 2% Santorum
  • 3.3% Gingrich
  • 4% Rick Perry
  • 10.7% Paul
  • 11.1% Romney
  • 12.2% Bachmann
  • 52.6% Herman Cain!
Herman Cain’s skype address earlier today seems to have paid off.
