Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the winner of the Conservative Political Action Conference Straw Poll, The Washington Times reports.
The poll provides an indication of where the party’s base is — and it is solidifying behind Mitt Romney.
Romney won the Straw Poll with 38 percent of the 3,408 votes cast. Rick Santorum followed with 31 percent, Newt Gingrich with 15 percent, and Ron Paul with 12 percent.
So even though conservatives actually can’t stand Mitt Romney, apparently his latest declaration that he was a “severely conservative” governor was good enough for them. And since one of the biggest themes of this year’s Republican primary season is how Obamacare sucks, obviously choosing the father of Obamacare to run against Obama makes perfect sense.
Please commence mocking now.
