Romney Wins CPAC Straw Poll

Mitt Romney won the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll with 38%, followed by Rick Santorum at 31%, Newt Gingrich at 15% and Ron Paul at 12%, the Washington Times reports.

"The poll results have no official meaning in the GOP's presidential nomination battle but do give Mr. Romney a boost as he seeks to regain the momentum he appeared to have lost last week as Mr. Santorum swept Tuesday's three contests."

The New York Times reports the Romney campaign worked "aggressively behind the scenes for a strong showing, including busing students from colleges along the Eastern Seaboard to show their support."
