Mitt getting among the people

These are the following percentages from the Michigan Staw Poll as reported via "Romney won 50.1 percent of the 681 votes cast compared to 16.8 percent for Perry. Cain got 8.5 percent, while Representative Ron Paul of Texas got 7.7 percent. Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann received 4 percent; former House speaker Newt Gingrich won 3.5 percent; former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum got 3.4 percent; and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman got 2 percent."

The LA Times reported prior to the poll that Mitt is the "son of revered former Gov. George Romney, who served three terms in the 1960s," and upon his arrival to the state, he "received a hero’s welcome at the docks."

Wikipedia states that a Straw Poll is vote with nonbinding results. The external link there takes you to USA Straw Polls, but that data is from 2007! Does anyone have a better link to share here for 2011 and the upcoming schedule along with results?

To Your Succes. Congratulations to Mitt Romney for his victory!
