Thune Finishes Last In N.H. Straw Poll

January 23, 2011, 8:07 AM by Perry Groten

Thune Finishes Last In N.H. Straw Poll
DERRY, N.H. - South Dakota Senator John Thune finished tied for last place in a presidential straw poll among state Republicans in New Hampshire Saturday.   New Hampshire holds the nation's first presidential primary next year.

273 Republicans cast votes in the straw poll.

As expected, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney won with 35-percent of the vote. He was followed by Texas Congressman Ron Paul with 11-percent.

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty came in third with 8-percent, followed by former vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin with 7-percent.

Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachman was fifth with 5-percent.

Thune tied with U-S Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman, Jr. with zero-percent.

Thune is considering a possible run for president. On Friday, Thune was in Sioux Falls for an economic roundtable. He said then that he doesn't hold much stock in polls taken this early in the political process.

"I don't think the polls are particularly meaningful at this point in time, other than people love to talk about it and there's a lot of hype around that," Thune said.

Thune also said on Friday he did not expect to do well in the New Hampshire straw poll because he lacks national name recognition among Republicans.
