ARLINGTON -- Texas Rep. Ron Paul easily won a presidential poll at a Republican Party of Virginia conference here yesterday.

Paul polled 182 out of about 500 votes cast. Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson finished second with 112 votes, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee finished third with 51 votes.

The straw poll was held at the 24th annual Republican Advance, generally attended by activists and grass-roots workers, at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel in the Washington suburbs.

Republican officials dismissed the poll's outcome, noting that Paul has been concentrating on winning straw polls all over the country.

Another Ron Paul straw poll win that was totally ignored by the mainstream media. "Republican officials dismissed the poll's outcome, noting that Paul has been concentrating on winning straw polls all over the country." Do you think the GOP would dismiss these polls if one of their own won?
