County Fair Corn Poll

This year interested Johnson County Fair attendees were handled a single kernel of popping corn, and instructed to place it in the Mason Jar of their choice.  Arrayed on the table before them were sixteen jars, each labeled and representing candidates seeking recognition as the eventual 2016 Republican Presidential Nominee.  This "unscientific" and "unofficial" poll generated much discussion and fun speculation during the fair, but it's easy to say most people haven't really decided on a candidate yet.  Below we present the results in order of finish.                                    

Donald Trump--189 kernels
Scott Walker---131
Bobby Jindal---125
Ben Carson---100
Mike Huckabee---90
Rand Paul---80
Ted Cruz---71
Carly Fiorina---60
Jeb Bush---54
John Kasich---43
Rick Perry---40
Marco Rubio---37
Rick Santorum---27
Lindsey Graham---25
George Pataki---14
Chris Christie---13

Notes:  Jim Gilmore, former Governor of Virginia entered the race too late to make our poll.  Minor candidates, who fail to gather interest or support in National Polls, were likewise excluded.  For more information on any of these candidates please visit our "Officials/Candidates" Page.

Words of Wisdom

George Washington, 1732-1799

"There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war."
