Farewell From CPAC: Rand Paul Declared Straw Poll Winner

CPAC has officially ended after an event-filled four days.

Scores of presumptive GOP presidential candidates showed up to make the obligatory rounds, delivering speeches and answering tough questions on the main stage of the Potomac Ballroom. Most candidates performed skillfully or exceeded expectations. Some of them, however, felt more at home than others.

Which naturally brings us to CPAC's annual straw poll results. As it happens, polls were open to all registered attendees and conference participants. And while the results do not necessarily represent public opinion outside the conference (nearly half of respondents were between the ages of 18 and 25), it’s worth noting that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has been declared the winner for the third year in a row. He earned 26 percent of the vote.

Scott Walker (21 percent) and Ted Cruz (12 percent) finished in second and third place, respectively. There were 3,007 total participants.
