GOP straw poll shows Rudy, Hillary at top

Posted by David Postman at 2:11 PM

The King County Republican Party had a straw poll going at its Seafair booth over the weekend. Party spokesman Phil Bevis said 474 people, Democrats and Republicans, stopped to vote for their favorite presidential candidate. Here's how the straws stacked up:

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES

Rudy Giuliani - 40%
Fred Thompson - 26%
John McCain -13%
Mitt Romney - 13%
Ron Paul - 4%
Mike Huckabee - 2%
Sam Brownback - <1%
Duncan Hunter - <1%
Tom Tancredo - <1%
Tommy Thompson - <1%


DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES

Hillary Clinton - 45%
Barack Obama - 38%
John Edwards - 7%
Joseph Biden - 3%
Mike Gravel - 2%
Bill Richardson - 2%
Dennis Kucinich - 2%



The only surprise I see is that Thompson didn't do better. Straw polls at party functions show him at top. Mix in the pirates, though, and Giuliani looks like a clear frontrunner.
