Santorum Wins PAGOP Straw Poll, Followed by Romney

By Keegan Gibson and Sari Heidenreich

PA’s favorite son made good in the Republican State Committee’s presidential straw poll this evening.

After a speech by his wife, Karen, former Senator Rick Santourum took 36% (138) of the 388 votes cast.

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney came in second with 25% or 98 votes, followed by Texas Governor Rick Perry with  18% or 71 votes.

Huntsman pulled in fourth with 5% or 21 votes.

General Counsel for the PAGOP, Lawrence Tabas, officiated the poll. He said its findings were not scientific — but added, to loud laughter, “you have to have a valid photo ID to vote.”

  1. What are the chances of Santorum getting the republican nod on the presidential nomination? About the same as mine, it’s time to stop the pretense that this guy has any chance of gaining the nomination.

  2. Also, how much can Santorum (falsely) tout his ability to win a key swing state like Pennsylvania, as the state GOP is planning to gut the Electoral College vote?
