Iowa gets all of the attention, but here is how the Ill straw poll turned out yesterday - caveat - it was raining like crazy so turnout was low - but still...

1. Mitt Romney -- 40.35%

2. Fred Thompson -- 19.96%

3. Ron Paul -- 18.87%

4. Rudy Giuliani -- 11.61%

5. John McCain -- 4.12%

6. Mike Huckabee -- 3.04%

7. Sam Brownback -- 1.08%

8. Duncan Hunter -- .65%

9. Tom Tancredo -- .33%

I still say Mitt Romney wins the Repub nomination. Which actually lets me breath a sigh of relief. I can live with a repub moderate. For all of you Paul folks, this is interesting as well.

Paul got more votes in the Iowa Straw Poll... than the total number of votes cast for all candidates in Illinois.

I think I've figured out why nobody cares about the IL Straw Poll.

Thanks for putting this up o&s.

I doubt Romney would pick Paul for VP because Paul is more an outsider.

Texas Straw Poll is coming up in Sept too!!
