Oregon Straw Poll: Daniels then Romney

If those attending the Dorchester Conference in Seaside this weekend had a chance to vote for a Republican presidential candidate, 30 percent would cast their vote for Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels.

Daniels was praised for being fiscally conservative, running a state government with a budget surplus and having “core moral values.”

Another 23 percent would vote for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and 18 percent would put a check next to the name of Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate.
Mitch Daniels 30%
Mitt Romney 23%
Sarah Palin 18%
Mike Huckabee 10%
Newt Gingrich 6%
Ron Paul 5%
Tim Pawlenty 4%
Haley Barbour 3%
Donald Trump 2%

The full story is here.

Daniels had previously won a Washington State straw poll at the end of January. Again, followed by Romney.

I don't think Daniels is running.

If Daniels doesn't run, I would imagine that Romney moves to the top in both states.

Then again, these are straw polls. He's probably on top already.

Straw polls are meaningless.

Daniels averages 1-3% in 99% of the national polls and we're supposed to take this seriously?
