CRUZ WINS FIRST OHIO CONSERVATIVES UNITED POLL BY WIDE MARGIN
Akron, OH - It was announced today that Senator Ted Cruz has won the first Ohio Conservatives United Presidential Poll by a wide margin with 32% of Ohio Conservatives choosing the Texas Senator as their top Republican Presidential candidate. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was second with 16%, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was third at 15% with Ben Carson (11%) and Senator Marco Rubio (7%) rounding out the top five in a crowded field. Current Ohio Governor John Kasich tied for 8th place with three other candidates.
Tom Zawistowski, the President of the We the People Convention, explained the significance of the poll by saying "This poll shows where the conservative activists in the state are willing to put their support. These are the poeple who do all the work in the primary election. They make the phone calls, knock on the doors and get out the vote. That's what makes this poll more significant than other polls."
John McAvoy, Spokesman for the Ohio Conservatives United, said that "18 groups and over 900 individuals from around the state participated in this first survey which will be conducted monthly until the 2016 primary." Results from individual groups can be viewed at www.OhioConservativesUnited.org. McAvoy said that they expect many more groups to participate in the coming months.
