ACU ANNOUNCES RESULTS OF THE WASHINGTON TIMES-CPAC 2013 STRAW POLL

March 15, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC 2013) concluded with Senator Rand Paul winning the CPAC Straw Poll. The Straw Poll was sponsored by The Washington Times and conducted by Fabrizio, McLaughlin & Associates.

Today’s 40th Annual National CPAC was a high-energy three-day conference bracketed by dynamic remarks by top regional and national conservative leaders.

In first place, Rand Paul secured 25% percent of the vote by registered CPAC attendees, followed by Senator Marco Rubio at 23% percent.  Former Senator Rick Santorum received 8% percent of the vote, closely followed by Governor Chris Christie with 7% percent and Representative Paul Ryan with 6% percent.

A total of over 60 names were either listed or written in.  The top two names received nearly 50% of the vote.

We convened thousands of energized conservatives today at this 40th Annual National CPAC 2013 from across the entire country,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “It’s been a long-standing and fun tradition at CPAC National as well as our regional CPACs to poll the attendees and get their opinion on a number of important issues.”

The Washington Times is honored to partner with CPAC to measure the pulse of conservatives at this key moment in the movement,” said Larry Beasley, President and CEO of The Washington Times.

The Washington Times-CPAC 2013 Straw Poll results help benchmark how conservatives perceive key issues and their preferred candidates heading into the next election.

Every year, the ACU brings thousands of grassroots conservatives and conservative leaders together in Washington, D.C., and now in regional conferences comprising blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional values.  The next CPAC event will be March 6-8, 2014.
