Overnight Update

Posted by Mike Tate in The 2007 Iowa Straw Poll | Comments (21) | Permalink

This experience of staying up all night to guard our straw poll tent is actually awesome. I've been monitoring the surroundings with a golf cart, which I'm driving around tomorrow (I mean, later today). Anyway, so far so good. All is quiet:

Overnight Update 1

Overnight Update 2

Overnight Update 3

Well, at least this campaign is making history with new technology -- the first campaign ever to blog a straw poll through the middle of the night.

Overnight at the Straw Poll

Posted by Mike Tate in The 2007 Iowa Straw Poll | Comments (7) | Permalink

I'm staying overnight at the straw poll tent. It's going to be me and one other staffer. We're there for security reasons. If someone tries to vandalize the tent (and there's a high chance too), it'll be all over the blog within the hour -- or, however long it takes to call police.

But, hey, since I'm up I'll post some pics through the night of the location. Especially since I have to make up for almost a whole day of not posting!

48 Hours

Results announced Saturday at 7 PM.

Meanwhile:

A sample of 222 people who were considered the most likely Republican caucus goers were asked a series of questions about the Aug. 11 Straw Poll in Ames.

Most -- 81.5 percent -- were aware of the straw poll; 18.5 percent were not. Of those who were aware, only 23.8 percent planned to attend, leaving a number too small to analyze with confidence for details of candidate support. However, about one-third of those planning to attend said they support Romney, 16 percent Tancredo, 12 percent Giuliani, 9 percent Brownback and 7 percent Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas.
