This Straw Poll also pushed Newt Gingrich to third place with 128 votes (10%). This right here shows Ron Paul's and Mitt Romney's attacks at Newt Gingrich is actually working, as he fell from the Main Stream Media Generated Frontrunner to Third Place.
Of course the Main Stream Media polls will still show Newt Gingrich in 1st at least nationally, but literally Newt is of course is a dead nationally and dead in third place right now in Iowa and dropping as he is getting exposed as a non-Conservative, and a thief that stole Tax Payer's money.

Another thing this Straw Poll shows is that Jon Huntsman should have been in the Debate Yesterday and the Debate on December 15, 2011; as he beat Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann, and Rick Santorum. Jon Huntsman beat Rick Santorum by 3 times the amount of Santorum.
This poll also shows at least me that, maybe instead of not inviting Jon Huntsman, they should not invite Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann, and Rick Santorum as the people would rather have Other people then them.
