(CNN) - Sen. Rand Paul won a presidential straw poll this weekend at Maine's GOP convention.
The Kentucky Republican, who's seriously considering a bid for the White House in 2016 and who spoke at the convention on Saturday, took just over a quarter (26%) of the 690 ballots cast.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas came in second with 14%, followed by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 10% and both physician Ben Carson and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 9%.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush took 8%, with Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin at 5%, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice tied at 4%.

Sen. Rand Paul convincingly wins CPAC presidential straw poll
Straw poll, eh? So 26% of Maine scarecrows want him as President then? That's about what this amounts to.
The straw polls are as accurate as a democrats puppies hind leg . And that you can count on .
hey this looks like the fringe of the fringe. i wouldn't want to be in the top tear of this straw poll, because every one in the lead has a snow ball in hell of winning the general election against Clinton. i guest they have to get more of these militia type tea partyers on the beat.
Rand is the only candidate that can resurrect the real GOP.

Twice as smart as Rick Perry for the same price .
-this guy is not even qualified to be cook in the WH. Period.
What a line up, lmao, man, are you guys in trouble!
-Republican Party is pretty much gone to dogs by virtue of Bush, Dick etc. Very pathetic–sold to NRA, Israel, Oil nations. GOP is gone to dogs, may be replaced with strong populist party.
Straw polls are meaningless. If I'm not mistaken, out of all of the top vote getters, Rand Paul was the only one who actually attended and spoke at the convention. Rand Paul should have won it by a bigger margin.

Does that mean that Paul can remember 4 out of 6, compared to 2 out of 3?
Scary. The only one on that whole list with an operational clue (Condi Rice) tied for last with Mike Huckleberry (the one with the least operational clue)!
Oh goody. GOPerville Flavor of the Month straw votes have begun in earnest.
