The FRC Action Straw Poll confirms that Mike Huckabee is the big winner here today.
In the online poll that the Romney campaign pushed hard to win, he only managed to get thirty more votes than Mike Huckabee -- 1595 to 1565 or 27.62% to 27.10%.
But, of the crowd *at* the Washington Briefing, Huckabee dominated everyone else.
Huckbee got 488 votes for an absolute majority out of the 19 candidates (all the Dems and GOP'ers) on the straw poll ballot (51.25%). Romney received 99 votes. What makes that even bigger news is that several sources connected to the FRC Action Washington Briefing have said Romney brought in "around 100" people to participate and assist.
Fred Thompson, by the way, came in third with 77 votes and online came in fourth with 564 votes, falling behind Ron Paul. The MoRons hit the online poll hard over the past week bring in 865 votes for Paul.
