This is a strong showing in Texas. The bloggers at TownHall are having a blast mocking Ron Paul supporters. What can we expect from neo-cons? Do they realize that a third among ten candidates and a third among a very strict polling is a superb mark? Though others recognize his rock-star status.
Duncan Hunter won the straw poll, which on the negative side means he will not drop off the race yet. However, to his credit he did what candidates should do: show up and shake hands.
Fred Thompson, who will soon announce his candidacy early next week came in second, which reveals that his campaign is already in trouble before he starts the race.
