Senator Ted Cruz easily beat the competition in the Value Voters Summit Presidential Straw Poll, winning a whopping 42 percent of votes cast by social conservatives at the summit.

Both Doctor Ben Carson and former senator Rick Santorum won 13 percent of the vote. Rounding out the top five were Senator Rand Paul (six percent) and Senator Marco Rubio (five percent).

I've never heard of this poll but...
anytime Dr. Ben Carson wants to run for anything, he has my vote.

How about a Cruz/Carson Presidential ticket? Or Carson/Cruz?

Just speculating.

Thanks, m... I was going to look it up and got side-tracked.  Ron Paul won in 2011, I forgot Huck won it in 2012... and a really good guy won it in 2010 - Mike Pence.
