The Florida Federation of College Republicans held a presidential primary straw poll at its spring quarterly meeting — and Mitt Romney won big.

Romney earned 47.62 percent of the vote. Ron Paul was second with 23.81 percent, Rick Santorum was third with 14.29 percent and Newt Gingrich got only 9.52 percent of the vote, according to a press release sent by Ryan Heffner of the FFCR.


There were eight chapters in attendance — Eckerd, FAU, UCF, UF, USF, UWF, UM — along with five FFCR executive board members present for the vote.
