Mitch Daniels wins the straw poll in Washington

By more than a two to one margin, Roanoke Conference attendees selected Daniels as their top choice from the wide open field of potential Republican candidates for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Sixteen potential candidates received votes. The results were as follows:

Governor Mitch Daniels, Indiana 31%
Former Governor Mitt Romney, Massachusetts 14%
Former Governor Tim Pawlenty, Minnesota 13%
Governor Chris Christie, New Jersey 9%
Senator John Thune, South Dakota 8%
Governor Bobby Jindal, Louisiana 5%
Representative Paul Ryan, Wisconsin 3%
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Georgia 3%
Senator Jim DeMint, South Carolina 3%
Former Governor Sarah Palin 3%
Governor Haley Barbour, Mississippi 2%
Former Governor Mike Huckabee, Arkansas 2%
Representative Mike Pence, Indiana 1%
Ambassador Jon Huntsman, Utah 1%
Representative Michele Bachmann, Minnesota 1%
Representative Ron Paul, Texas 1%

I don't think Daniels is running.

Does that mean Romney wins by default?

Am I the only one that thinks this is a little strange?

What does the State of Washington got in common with Indiana?

All the other Polls so far that Daniels is included in and he gets in the 1 or 2%.

This poll is a joke!

Maybe Daniels has a lot of Relatives in Washington?

Ann is right. This poll is a joke. Roanoke Conference attendees must not be a good representation of Washington voters.
Look how far down they have Palin.
