An update to Lew’s entry from yesterday:

At the Utah State Republican Convention this past weekend, Ron Paul came in second place with 5.66%. Mitt Romney carried 81% in the Mormon state.

What is significant is that, unlike online polls, GOP convention straw polls are closely controlled.

According to Ivan Dubois of the Utah State GOP HQ, only registered elected delegates to the convention were able to vote. No “stacking” of votes can take place, since only elected party activists voted.
