Results of the Otter Limits GOP Presidential Straw Poll

The poll closed late last night. The votes are in and the results are here!!!

With 33% of the vote (which in my opinion is hardly a majority), the winner of the Otter Limits GOP Straw Poll is Texas Congressman Ron Paul.

Trailing slightly behind him with 25% of the vote is radio talk show host Herman Cain.

Mitt Romney and Gary Johnson both tied for 3rd with 16% of the vote.

Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Jon Huntsman, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum all received 0 votes.

Other got 8% of the vote but no names were submitted by those that voted Other.

What does this straw poll show? It shows that, in many cases, straw polls are absolutely worthless when trying to determine who might win the Republican Presidential nomination.
