Bachmann Wins Ames Straw Poll

by Katrina Trinko

Michele Bachmann won the Ames Straw Poll today with 4,823 votes.

Ron Paul was about 150 votes behind (4,671). Tim Pawlenty was a distant third (2,293).

Among the rest of the field, Rick Santorum 1,657 votes, Herman Cain 1,465 votes, Rick Perry 718 votes, Mitt Romney 567 votes, Newt Gingrich 385 votes, Jon Huntsman 69 votes, and Thad McCotter 35 votes.

CORRECTION: I originally put that Rick Perry had 1,718 votes. I apologize for the mistake.
