Romney won

August 15, 2007

Re "Romney's fierce fight for the right," Aug. 13

It looks as if this headline was written before seeing the straw poll results. How can The Times honestly cite the results as evidence that GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is facing a fight for the conservative vote? Romney won with 31% of the vote, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee came in a distant second with 18%. How much better could Romney have done? The story notes that Huckabee and Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) had more votes combined than Romney did alone. Now that's spin.
