AMES, Iowa – Below, a selection of photos from the straw poll. IMG_0622 Voters pay a little attention to a repeat of Rick Perry’s speech. IMG_0578 Ron Paul voters listen to their man. IMG_0495 Thaddeus McCotter: 35 votes, but a lot of fun. IMG_0571 Peter Singleton, Sarah Palin’s (unofficial) man in Iowa. IMG_0555 Pawlenty’s voters skewed young; he made an appeal to them at the Greek triangle last night. IMG_0484 The Gingriches made a quick appearance early in the day, despite not officially campaigning here; he polled better than expected. IMG_0465 Ideologically correct fun.
