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.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
