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.

Yesterday, writing in his weekly "Kristol Clear" newsletter, the boss sent around an updated straw poll to gauge who readers think, at this point, should be the 2016 GOP nominee.
Several weeks ago, I asked for your (tentative, of course) GOP presidential preferences. I asked, if your state primary were tomorrow, who would you vote for? And who would be your second and third choices?

Having watched the debate Thursday night, and having heard the candidates speak and having mingled with them over the subsequent couple of days, 70 percent of the activists attending the Florida Republican gathering this weekend cast a vote of no confidence in the two GOP frontrunners.
So, with all the usual caveats about not over-interpreting straw polls, I’d suggest:
