Sarah Palin Wins August Hot Air Straw Poll With Highest Percentage Yet
By Gary P Jackson
Sarah Palin has won every Hot Air presidential straw poll ever presented. And she has won them very convincingly. This month is no different. With 2309 votes Sarah takes 40% of the vote compared to second place Rick Perry's 33% with 1888 votes. Support for Michele Bachmann has collapsed. She only gets 442 votes, 8%.
This month HA brings back the Vice President question with some interesting results. Congressman Allen West is usually the run-away favorite in these things, but this time Senator Marco Rubio crushes the competition with a solid 32% of the vote. West comes in second with 13%. My guess is the debt ceiling debate changes some minds, as Rubio was out front and center against the deal, and West was for it.
The second choice presidential candidate for those surveyed is Rick Perry, with 24%.
