Herman Cain Wins Florida Straw Poll

Florida straw poll voters decided they hate everyone and voted for the only candidate who's never held public office, Herman Cain.

Results: Cain (37 percent), Perry (15 percent), Romney (14 percent), Santorum (11 percent), Paul (10 percent), Gingrich (9 percent), Huntsman (2 percent), Bachmann (2 percent)

FoxNews set this straw poll up to be important:

Just days ahead of Florida's straw poll, Florida's Republican Party Communications Director Brian Hughes explained to "Power Play Live" host Chris Stirewalt just how big the sunshine state showdown really is.

"The winner of the Presidency 5 straw poll is going to be the Republican nominee," Hughes said.

Uh huh.

CORRECTION: The first post had Perry as third. The final results had Romney third.
