Straw polls are worth less than straw, I know. But .....

The Crawford County Republican Party Facebook page reports that they took a straw poll at the Van Buren Fall Festival on the GOP race for president. Results:

1. Ben Carson
2. Donald Trump
3. Ted Cruz
4. Mike Huckabee

TIE:
5. Carly Fiorina
Jeb Bush

7. Marco Rubio
8. Rand Paul
9. Jim Gilmore
10. Chris Christie
Nobody else received a vote

The outlier here is Huckabee, whose fourth-place finish puts him well above the 10th-place slot he currently holds in the Real Clear Politics polling average. The favorite son edge gets him up to fourth place.
