Ron Paul Wins FreedomWorks Straw Poll

Online Poll Receives a Staggering 16,371 Individually Validated Ballots
WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FreedomWorks officially closed its Republican Presidential Straw Poll early this morning after 16,371 limited government conservatives cast their votes over 3 days of polling. Texas Representative Ron Paul won by a wide margin with 56 percent of the vote. Senator Fred Thompson snatched the second place position, with Duncan Hunter taking third. The FreedomWorks Straw Poll provides the most complete view of the limited government movement heading into the Iowa Straw Poll on August 11th.

The mainstream can't keep writing off Ron Paul with these results. The man has united Americans from all sides of the political spectrum, with his simple but desperately needed message of freedom.

I only wish Britain had the same sort of positive movement going, but I can only hope the Ron Paul revolution sparks similar movements across the globe!
