I agree with Don Ward at Sound Politics who considers it a loss for Romney after spending millions on campaigning there:
Some of the news reports are falsely portraying this as evidence that Romney is gaining street cred with conservatives in the party. Quite the contrary. The poll participants broke overwhelmingly away from the Massachusetts politician.
Basically what was told to Romney is given the choice between him and a group of political nobodies by a two-to-one margin, the poll participants said "We like these guys who don't have a rat's-ass-chance of winning over you and your money, pretty boy."
The real winners of the straw poll were Huckabee, Browback and Tancredo. It would be nice to see a serious televised debate between the three of these candidates, since all of them are pro-life. Pro-lifers could really get a look at where they stand on other issues we care about and then make a more informed choice so we can pool our efforts together. If the pro-life vote continues to go divided, we will surely end up with one of the "top tier" who are either pro-abortion-choice or cosmetically pro-life.
Update: Pro-life blogger, Leticia's asking, "Will GOP get the hint?"
