Herman Cain Wins Denver Straw Poll, Rick Perry Second

In National News, Politics on August 2, 2011 at 1:19 am
Gov. Rick Perry placed a distant second in the Denver Straw Poll this weekend, a contest that GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain easily won after a rousing speech and a direct plea for support Sunday.
“Didn’t I tell you that the people were going to select the next nominee?” Cain said after the results were announced. “You all have really made me feel good today … We’re not done yet!”
Perry didn’t ask that his name be put into the non-binding straw poll, which serves as a test of strength among western Republicans. But organizers of the Western Conservative Summit put both declared and undeclared candidates into the mix. Cain, the former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, won with 48 percent of the conference participants, far ahead of the others.
Perry got 13 percent, polling higher than declared candidate Rick Santorum, who got 10 percent. The former Pennsylvania senator had sharply criticized the Texas governor‘s stand on gay marriage during the conference.
Perry, who drew a huge crowd at a book-signing event before he spoke on Friday, also outperformed both former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, considered the frontrunner in the Republican presidential contest so far, and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, who has emerged as a strong contender in her native Iowa.
Romney tied Santorum at 10 percent, while Bachmann received 9 percent.
