Late last week, hundreds of dedicated WEEKLY STANDARD readers flocked to Colorado Springs to attend the magazine's yearly summit at the Broadmoor resort.
There, the boss conducted a straw poll for the event's attendees. Here's a summary of the results from today's Kristol Clear newsletter (which you can sign up for here):
As you know, Scott Walker led in the three polls we've done through this newsletter over the past few months. But it was Marco Rubio who prevailed among the 400 or so Broadmoor attendees, with Scott Walker second, and no one else really close to either of them.
Here are the results. The first number is the percentage of first place choices, the secondis the percentage of ballots on which the candidate took first, second, or third place.
No one else showed up in the first three positions on more than 5% of the ballots.
So it was Rubio's moment at the Broadmoor. We'll see where you all stand on the race when we do another poll of readers in a couple of weeks.
