A straw poll that matters more than most?



The Brevard County GOP held a straw poll Friday night that arguably is more reflective of the overall GOP electorate than other GOP straw polls in recent months, where voting was limited to executive committee members. In Brevard's case, we're told only about one in four voters were executive committee members. The results only include the top two vote-getters:

U.S. SENATE: Marco Rubio: 321, Charlie Crist: 45
GOVERNOR: Bill McCollum: 305, Paula Dockery: 43
ATTORNEY GENERAL: Jeff Kottkamp: 134, Pam Bondi: 127
CFO: Jeff Atwater: 241, Pat Patterson: 56
AG COMMISSIONER: Carey Baker (the day he withdrew): 146, Adam Putnam:143
