GOP Bloggers is the largest GOP straw poll I am aware of--with over 13,500 votes in. Guess who is dominating the competition…
McCain: 4.2% (that’s NOT a typo)
Note: Newt Gingrich is an option on this poll and many took the opportunity to voice their approval of Newt. I have omitted his results from this entry as he is not generally considered a candidate at this point. Overall, Newt came in second, behind Romney, and in the states listed below, only Texas has him as the leader.
McCain: 3.9% (again, NOT a typo!)
Note: I can’t believe how poorly McCain is doing in this poll. It just goes to show you how little support he has among informed, energetic, grassroots GOPers.
Note: Wait, I thought Mitt would get ravaged by all the Evangelicals in SC? The numbers speak for themselves.
Note: Mitt is rampaging NH!
Other BIG States:
Note: Mark my words, Mitt will win the State of California in the GENERAL ELECTION! Won’t that be an accomplishment for a Republican? (If you doubt me, remember that Massachusetts is infinitely more liberal than California, and Mitt won the MA Governorship.)
Note: Like I noted above, this is one of the rare states where Mitt was not on top. Newt was by about 1 percentage point.
Note: Rudy’s home state. What did you expect?
Note: McCain is a bit higher here, probably because of a beltway effect. Shows that he has a touch of support in D.C., but, unfortunately for him, nowhere else.
Note: Hanging chads.
Other States of Interest:
Note: McCain’s home state. What did you expect? Oh, wait... if I were McCain, after seeing this, I would save myself a lot of wasted energy and drop out of the race now.
Note: We love Mitt! He did a fantastic job in Mass.
Note: Do you think Mitt just might be able to take Utah? Just to assuage your fears that the overall poll was skewed by the Utah numbers, of the 13,500 + votes, only 191 came from Utah.
