South Carolina Straw Poll

Posted by Ryan on March 3, 2007

The first “straw poll” of the 2008 election season was taken in South Carolina yesterday.  Smeagol came out on top, but by only two votes!  Rudy lost 164-162 with Duncan Hunter coming in third with 158.  Newt came in sixth as a write in candidate!  What does this all mean?  There are still plenty of McCainiacs out there that could spell trouble next year, but the strong showing of “also-ran” conservative Duncan Hunter shows that there are still some cool-headed conservatives out there ready for a fight before they let Precious take over party.
