Romney Gets Another Gold Star

The former MA governor and possible 2012 Republican presidential contender narrowly eked out a win in the SRLC straw poll by a single vote. Even by straw poll standards, I’m going to say this is virtually meaningless: the next runner-up was Ron Paul (whose speech at the event, I’m going to guess, didn’t exactly ingratiate him to the GOP base), and Romney tends to be better at winning straw polls than nominations anyway; he also came out on top in the 2008 and 2009 CPACs.

If there’s any news here, it’s that Palinmania doesn’t seem to be at a what you’d call a fever pitch these days.

  1. I wonder if Palin will care at all.
