A straw poll held by St. George's Dixie Republican Forum on Tuesday elected ... Ron Paul! The results, as determined by citizens who live in the middle of a strip mall surrounded by golf courses (or vice-versa, depending on the part of town): Ron Paul: 28. Mitt Romney: 18. Alan Keyes: 7 (!). Fred Thompson: 5. John McCain: 5. Mike Huckabee: 2. Rudy Giuliani: 1. Tom Tancredo: 1.
That's right--Alan Keyes placed third, but probably only because Bo Gritz isn't in the running. (Bill Frost)
