Strib Poll results
Nearly 6,000 visitors to the Tribune Web site voted in the very unscientific Strib Poll, selecting their favorite among 11 GOP candidates seeking to be the party's presidential nominee.
The poll was conducted Thursday through 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, closing on the day of the state Republican party's fund-raising Straw Poll.
Getting the largest number of votes on the unofficial Strib Poll was Ron Paul, with 4,809 votes or 84.5 precent of the 5,694 votes tallied. Read more here.
Editor's Note: Ron Paul has historically and consistantly beaten all of his Republican challengers in online polls since he announced his candidacy for President. Now why can't the Iowa GOP get around to certifying the Iowa Straw Poll results with a manual count of the paper ballots?
