Ron Paul Wins Value Voters Summit Straw Poll

Rep. Ron Paul has won the annual Value Voters Summit straw poll with 37 percent of the vote.

Despite his success here, Paul repeatedly scores in the single digits in national polls, including the latest Fox News polls that has him at 6 percent.

Businessman Herman Cain came in second with 23 percent of the vote after giving a speech during the summit heavily focused on moral issues and a failing economy.

Hot Air's Ed Morrissey has more details on the results:

Update (Ed): I attended the post-poll press conference, and to say that the Values Voters Summit organizers are skeptical of Paul’s win is an understatement.  Tony Perkins twice noted that 600 tickets were bought this morning, and that a great many people left after Paul’s speech.  The conference sold 3406 registrations, well over their 2007 record of around 2700.  If half of those 600 were Paul ringers and we take them out of the equation, then Cain would have finished first, 27/26 with Santorum at 19%.  If 80% of today’s registrants were Paul ringers and are removed, Cain would have had 32% of the vote, followed by Santorum at 23% and Perry in third place with 12%.  Just something to keep in mind.
