Romney

Rep. Ron Paul, hero of a fervant band of libertarians, unexpectedly won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference today, claiming 31% of the votes cast.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, who has carried the survey for the past three years, was second at 22%.

The straw poll is unscientific but is sometimes seen as a show of organizational strength among presidential hopefuls. However, Paul, who made a longshot bid for the Republican nomination in 2008, has given no indication he plans to run again.

All things being equal, Romney will be the Republican's 2012 nominee for president.

At which point, you can expect the "progressives" to unleash a wave of vicious anti Mormon religious bigotry (which is how Ted Kennedy beat Romney in Massachusetts).
