Fred Karger Wins Saint Anselm Straw Poll

Fred Karger has apparently won the Saint Anselm College 2012 Republican Straw Poll, beating out current New Hampshire Primary frontrunner Mitt Romney by 5 votes. As the only presidential candidate who accepted students' invitation to the event, he deserves it.

"Results of a New Hampshire straw poll to be conducted by Saint Anselm College March 31 will be watched closely," the Boston Herald reported a few days back. Be interesting to see how much play this story gets in the media now that the only openly gay presidential candidate to ever run under the banner of a major political party in the the U.S. has emerged as the winner. 

Complete results (number of votes)

Fred Karger 79
Mitt Romney 74
Donald Trump 26
Tim Pawlenty 24
Ron Paul 24
Rudy Giuliani 22
Rick Santorum 20
Sarah Palin 9
Herman Cain 8
