New York, NY - The New York Young Republican Club (NYYRC) announced today the results of a straw poll which followed the 2008 election debate held by the club at which more than 90 people were in attendance.

Club members represented the views of primary candidates Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee on key issues in the 2008 election such as taxes, defense, immigration, healthcare, education and social issues.

Following the debate, dues-paying members were invited to cast their votes in a straw poll. Non-members who wanted to participate were able to join on-site.

Ron Paul 26; Rudy 21; Romney 6; McCain 4; Huckabee 2; Hunter 1; Thompson 1; Cox 0; Keyes 0; Tancredo 0

The NYYRC does not endorse prior to a primary and this straw poll does not constitute any official endorsement.
