First Republican Straw Poll to Take Place Saturday in Ft. Worth

The first straw poll conducted in Texas will take place on Saturday.

Republican Party members will meet at the Fort Worth Convention Center to vote on their pick for the presidential nomination.

Straw polls are conducted all the time and show who the top contenders are.

One local professor thinks this poll is different.

"The poll could have an impact on the candidates' support, but that support could mean more to Texas Republicans than to their candidates," West Texas A&M University Professor said.

The most recent poll was conducted in Iowa, where Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney came in first, with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in second.
