NTU straw poll

Fred Thompson wins the straw poll at the National Taxpayers Conference, but guess who came in second place:

Every attendee of our Conference was given a chance to vote for any of the declared Presidential candidates, Republican or Democrat. After counting the votes, we can announce partial results.

Fred Thompson was the winner with 25.7% of the vote.

Ron Paul came in second place with 16.7%.

Rudy Giuliani placed third with 12.5%

Mitt Romney garnered 9.0% of the vote to snag fourth place.

The top five was rounded out by John McCain, who received 5.6%.

Also, Jim Gilmore kicked off a property rights initiative at the conference as well. Gilmore and Ron Paul are the only two candidates that have mentioned eminent domain and private property rights, at least as far as I know.
