Newt WINS the NVRA Straw Poll : 48 Newt, 43 Ron Paul
Interesting tidbit for the strawpoll is each time you paid $10 to get in you got to vote. There were actually 48 physical bodies to go with the Gingrich votes but the rumor is that RP people were coming in and out all day, paying twice to get in where most didn’t even stay for the meeting (one individual even paid 5 times to vote). There were a bit over 20 warm bodies getting the Ron Paul votes.
