Wicomico GOP Straw Poll Results

I’ll have more on the actual event and what was said tomorrow. For tonight, here are the results of the “raw” ballots, filled out by each of the 46 people attending:

Presidential:

Fred Thompson, 22 votes - 47.8%
Rudy Giuliani, 6 votes - 13.0%
Mike Huckabee, 6 votes - 13.0%
Mitt Romney, 6 votes - 13.0%
Ron Paul, 4 votes - 8.7%
Duncan Hunter, 1 vote - 2.2%
Alan Keyes, 1 vote - 2.2%
Sam Brownback, no votes
John McCain, no votes
Tom Tancredo, no votes

For 1st District Congress:

Andy Harris, 22 votes - 47.8%
John Leo Walter, 11 votes - 23.9%
Wayne Gilchrest, 8 votes - 17.4%
Joe Arminio, 5 votes - 10.9%

Club members also had the opportunity to purchase votes for a separate ballot for $1 apiece. This raised over $300 for the club and made that set of results a little different. I added this feature to see the depth of support for each candidate, and it also allowed people to split tickets, as it were. I know I did.

Presidential:

Fred Thompson, 160 votes - 57.6%
Ron Paul, 54 votes - 19.8%
Duncan Hunter, 19 votes - 7.0%
Mitt Romney, 15 votes - 5.5%
Rudy Giuliani, 12 votes - 4.4%
Mike Huckabee, 4 votes - 1.5%
Alan Keyes, 3 votes - 1.1%
Sam Brownback, 1 vote - 0.0%
John McCain, no votes
Tom Tancredo, no votes

For 1st District Congress:

John Leo Walter, 125 votes - 46.1%
Andy Harris, 91 votes - 33.6%
Joe Arminio, 37 votes - 13.7%
Wayne Gilchrest, 18 votes - 6.6%

Tomorrow night after I attend the Wicomico Neighborhood Congress inaugural meeting I’ll post more on tonight’s Straw Poll - what the candidates said and other interesting items. I got pictures and text of tonight’s event so look forward to it.
