Top 3 Finish for Fred Thompson in Ohio Straw Poll

Finished well behind Giuliani and McCain, but got 50% more votes than Romney who finished 4th.

In what might be an early indication of the nation's thinking on the next Republican presidential nominee, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani won a straw poll Saturday night with 233 votes at the Summit County party's annual Lincoln Day Dinner in downtown Akron.

Giuliani's total was 31 percent of the 752 votes cast in the straw poll.

Finishing second with 194 votes, or 26 percent, was U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona. Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee was third with 91 votes.
