FRC clearly hates the fact that Ron Paul won 'Value Voters' straw poll
There's no way that a far-right group like the Family Research Council wants Rep. Ron Paul as the Republican nominee. So it's pretty funny that Paul won the group's Value Voters Summit straw poll by a substantial margin:
But even funnier/ more telling than the results themselves is the way Family Research Council is trying to spin them. Check out the headline they gave to the press release announcing Paul's victory:
They make it sound as if Cain and Santorum were neck-in-neck, even though Paul beat Cain by a healthy 14% and trounced Santorum by a whopping 21%. It's just that FRC knows a libertarian-leaning Paul victory is not what their conservative evangelical base (or their organization) really wants, so they have to save face. When the least "Values Voter"-y of the field wins the "Values Voter Summit" poll, the host organization has no choice but to save face.
