Romney Edges Paul in Straw Poll Vote

In case you missed it over the weekend, Mitt Romney edged out Ron Paul to win the SRLC straw poll by a single vote, reports Dave Weigel.

Romney took 439 votes (24%) to Paul's 438 votes (also 24%), a result that disappointed a Paul-heavy crowd that had stuck around to watch the results. Sarah Palin came in third with 330 votes (18%), and Newt Gingrich came in fourth with 321 votes (18%); Mike Huckabee, who did not attend the event, scored 4%. Total ballots cast: 1,806.

Proving that he's the Republican party frontrunner in 2012, Romney won the straw poll without even attending the event.
