Sure, Ron Paul may have won the Values Voter Summit straw poll—but that doesn't mean values voters like him, a social conservative activist says. The head of the Family Research Council told CNN's American Morning that, "when you look at everything," Paul, who got 37% support, "is an outlier in this poll." The Texas congressman bused in "over 600" supporters to push up his poll results, Tony Perkins said.
"You see Herman Cain finishing a strong second, followed by Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry. Those are more reflective I think of the other polls and what's happening in the social conservative community." In short, "I don’t think Ron Paul is truly reflective of where values voters stand," Perkins said, according to the Hill. As for Herman Cain, "I think there’s something to be said about his results," Perkins noted.
