Rand Paul edges Marco Rubio in straw poll run by Rubio pal

@MarcACaputo CPAC straw poll results show Sen Marco Rubio lost to Sen Rand Paul. Wonder what Rubio mentor/lobbyist/American Conservative Union chief Al Cardenas thinks?

From Politico: "Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul eked out a narrow victory in the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll Saturday, with 25 percent of votes to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's 23 percent. The runners-up were as follows: former Sen. Rick Santorum, 8 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, 7 percent; Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, 6 percent; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, 5 percent; Ben Carson, 4 percent; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, 4 percent; Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, 3 percent; former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, 3 percent. Other candidates received a combined 14 percent."

The Ron Paul kooks live for these straw polls, so this is a sign how strong Rubio is.
