Alabama Republican Party winner of the straw poll as declared Presidential Candidate Herman Cain with 47% on Saturday, 13, 2011 Summer event. I would make this distinction for any of the other declared candidates as well if they had of won. The ALGOP is tauting the winner R.Perry who was undeclared at the time. This report stinks to high heaven with no mention of top DECLARED WINNER.
Perry wasn't a candidate at the time of this poll. I wonder if Palin got any write-in votes that were simply not reported? Why didn't they just say Bachmann won because she was female or Paul won because he's got the nicest grey-hair? Do you see my point?
Herman Cain: 47 Mitt Romney: 36
Michele Bachmann: 24
Newt Gingrich: 11
Ron Paul: 3
Tim Pawlenty: 3
Rick Santorum: 3
Gary Johnson: 2
write in perry: 101
Texas Gov. Rick Perry is no rock star neither is he beloved by all Texans contrary to the talking heads on the tube. From all accounts he is a RINO, yes, a Republican In Name Only. A party person will tell you that he is the best thing since sliced bread but hold your horses and do your research. I did. From all the links and things I've read the party people say the good things only and the others give the real picture. Here is probably the best link that I have found to date that summaries those things that stand out about this 2012 candidate.

Just because someone you trust says this is who you should vote for...go read, read, and don't stop reading. Make an informed decision would 'ya.
