The Meaningless Meaning of Winning a Straw Poll

The usual suspects all attended this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, from Sen. Rubio and Sen. Cruz to Sarah Palin and even The Donald. But the King of the recent ball was Sen. Rand Paul.

Sen. Paul won the CPAC straw poll, placing him ahead of Sen. Cruz and Governor Chris Christie. But, what does this mean? Nothing. Nada. The last time someone not named Paul or Romney won the poll was in 2006 when Sen. George Allen won. Senator who? Exactly.

Fusion’s Alicia Menendez talks about why the straw poll is all meaningless.
