Ron Paul Wins FreedomWorks Straw Poll announced yesterday that Congressman Ron Paul won their first online straw poll. Over 16,000 votes were cast and only one vote was counted per email address. Every vote had to be validated by a confirmation email as well. This is said to be one of the most accurate online polls to date. Dr. Paul won with 56% of the vote with a wide margin over Fred Thompson in second and Duncan Hunter in third.

FreedomWorks’ Chairman is former House Majority Leader Dick Army so this poll has some actual credibility among conservatives.
