AMES, Iowa– Congressman Ron Paul won 4,671 votes in today’s Iowa Republican Straw Poll, topping Governor Mitt Romney’s vote total from 2007 and drawing a near statistical tie with today’s winner at 27.6 percent of the vote versus 28.5 percent.
Dr. Paul’s finish earned him a strong second place and it was the fourth highest vote total ever received by a candidate at the important test of candidate strength.

You’d never guess it from the news media. They talk more about Huntsman with his 69 votes than they do Ron Paul. Jon Stewart had an awesome montage on Monday night’s show from all the networks talking about the “top tier” of Bachmann, Pawlenty and Santorum while pretending Paul doesn’t even exist.
But the media is completely objective, never showing partiality. Like Joe Friday never actually said: “Just the facts, ma’am.”

That’s because they fear the truth Ron Paul is speaking.
