Florida's GOP Presidential Straw Poll Results

Herman Cain won Florida’s Presidency 5 straw poll.

This poll does have a pretty good record of picking candidates but the important thing to remember is that only 2,657 specially selected Republican voters were allowed to vote in the straw poll unlike other states which allow all party voters to participate. Rick Perry and Mitt Romney who are dubbed the "front runner's" came in 2nd and third each receiving less than half the votes of Herman Cain. My favorite Ron Paul, who many say have no chance, received only 5% less votes that Perry or Romney.

Also remember that Florida has a history of allowing people to vote multiple times in their straw poll, if selected delegates allow surrogates to vote for their tickets, which cost $175 each.

Total results are as follows.

Herman Cain - 996 (37.1%)
Rick Perry - 409 (15.4%)
Mitt Romney - 372 (14.0%)
Ron Paul - 276 (10.4%)
Newt Gingrich - 224 (8.4%)
Jon Huntsman - 60 (2.3%)
Michele Bachmann - 40 (1.5%)
