Last week, we asked our readers to select their preferred 2016 presidential candidate as of right now.
The presumed front-runner (and previous poll winner) Hillary Clinton did not prevail. Libertarian favorite Rand Paul, however, did prove to have a rabid fan base.
The Kentucky Senator prevailed with 402 votes to the former Secretary of State’s 308.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was also a bit of surprise. With the support of 149 respondents he came in third. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker finished fourth with 102 readers.
The rest of the field was as follows: Marco Rubio (67), Jeb Bush (52), Ben Carson (28), Chris Christie (21), Ted Cruz (21) and Mike Huckabee (9).
The full results are included below:
