"Makes you wonder about the straw poll in Iowa when Paul came in behind Romney, Huckabee, Brownback, and Tancredo. after "delayed results. Diebold voting machines should be illegal, bottom line."
PS. Exhausted from our first project at the Iowa Straw Poll in Ames on August 11th, the Vote In Sunshine Coalition did not have a team set up to monitor, do exit polls or video/record the proceedings at the first Illinois Straw Poll. However, the results in Illinois seem to be more "in line" with the tenor/tone/of what we experienced on the ground in Ames.
