Ron Paul wins CPAC straw poll ...

by 9 percent: ["Rep. Ron Paul surprise winner of CPAC presidential straw poll"].
Two quick points from this story: First, the influx of Tea Party activists into the CPAC event and their influence - clearly, from a Paul win - in the process. Just goes to show you that all the crap they are saying about the Tea Party isn't true. They aren't in the tank with the regular GOP. And they aren't about just stopping Obama's agenda.
And then, this line from the article:
"Reflecting the college atmosphere of the annual event, young people dominated the voting: 54 percent of participants were between the ages of 18 and 25."
Umm, this ain't your parents GOP in other words. Young people want freedom and they know they will be handed massive debt that they will never be able to pay. How much you want to bet that a good chunk of them voted for Paul?
