CNN Entrance Poll Has Paul, Romney, Santorum Leading



Text  



CNN entrance poll: Paul, Romney, and Santorum are the “top three.”

Everyone else is in the “second tier.” No specific numbers revealed yet.

The only thing that makes this poll more useful than previous ones is that everyone is a definite caucus-goer, not a likely caucus-goer, and it is up-to-the-minute.

UPDATE: It is now being reported that the order is Paul, Romney, and Santorum, although MSNBC is calling the order “too close to call.”

46 percent of the respondents called themselves “very conservative.” 54 percent described themselves as evangelical conservatives.

Among those who described themselves as Tea Party members, Paul was ahead, with Santorum trailing by a bit; Romney was in third and Gingrich was fourth.

ANOTHER UPDATE: WOW. According to CNN’s entrance poll, 41 percent of caucus-goers have not attended a Republican caucus before.

Strangely, when asked party ID, 71 percent said Republican, 27 percent said independent, and 3 percent said Democrat.
