Ted Cruz Dominates New FreedomWorks for America Straw Poll

Ted Cruz Winning

Grassroots activists at the FreedomWorks for America‘s Grassroots Summit in Orlando, FL held a straw poll to ask which of the numerous 2016 presidential candidates attendees preferred.

It wasn’t even close.

But unlike most polls showing Donald Trump with significant leads, Texas Senator Ted Cruz easily defeated both Trump and Dr. Ben Carson by huge margins.

Cruz received over five times the support of Trump, who finished third, and more than three times the votes of Carson, who came in a distant second place. The final results of the top three voter-getters were:

Ted Cruz – 41%

Ben Carson – 12%

Donald Trump – 8%

FreedomWorks for America describes itself as “a grassroots service center that provides the tools needed for grassroots volunteers seeking to elect candidates who fight for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom.”
