Cruz Crushes Perry/Bush in Texas GOP Straw Poll

Not too promising news for a Return of the Jebi


On Saturday at the Texas GOP Convention in Fort Worth, Senator Ted Cruz won the 2016 presidential straw poll with 43 percent of the vote.

“Senator Cruz is deeply grateful for the support of Texas grassroots activists who are leading the way in the effort to make D.C. listen,” a spokeswoman from Cruz’s office told Breitbart Texas. “He is committed to making Texans’ voices heard and keeping up the fight in Washington to restore jobs, growth, and opportunity for all Americans.”

Dr. Ben Carson came in a distant second, and was closely trailed by Senator Rand Paul and Governor Rick Perry.

Here is a complete breakdown of the straw poll results:

Texas Senator Ted Cruz: 43.3 percent
Dr. Ben Carson: 12.2 percent
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul: 12.1 percent
Texas Governor Rick Perry: 11.7 percent
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush: 3.3 percent
