MIDDLETOWN, CONNECTICUT - Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul
defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the first straw poll
to pit Republicans against Democrats on the same ballot. Middletown, CT
held its city straw poll Saturday night at the Church of Holy Trinity.
Proceeds from the $10 fee for participating were donated to the
Connecticut Breast Cancer Coalition. Paul led on the first ballot with
42 percent to Clinton’s 30 percent and Obama’s 20 percent. Other
candidates received 2 percent or less. Other trailing candidates were
eliminated and on the third ballot Paul prevailed 46 to 42 percent.
Bryan Tracy, who is with the Paul campaign in Connecticut, said
although the Clinton supporters in Middletown were surprised, he wasn’t.
“This shows Ron Paul’s electability in the general election,” Tracy
said. “We think that when people get a chance to compare our stands on
the issues with Hillary’s, we will prevail.”
