WASHINGTON, DC (Indiana's NewCenter)--In a straw poll at the Value Voters summit in washington Saturday conservative voters picked Indiana Congressman Mike Pence as their top choice for President.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee... who won the straw poll last year... came in second place.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin placed fifth... with seven percent.

Pence was also the top pick for vice president... followed by Palin... so the convention's organizer declared Palin the winner in the V.P. category.

Conservative voters at the convention said the top five issues that concern them are... abortion... government spending... repeal of President Obama's health care programs... protecting religious liberties... and national security.

I've heard him on local radio out here, he seems like a pretty straight shooter. President though, I don't know that much about him for that...yet.

These don't really seem like the top 5 issues I would have thought conservatives would care about. I guess that's why I'm not a conservative :D

I don't understand you at all, what are your top 5 issues?

Like I said, I'm not a conservative... but I would have thought conservative issues would be (in order)


Reduce the size and scope of federal government's authority
Reduce taxes, and also reduce spending esp. on "social services" style programs, both domestic and foreign.
Safeguard and re-affirm all liberties (1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, etc)
Secure borders
Change fiscal policy, remove reliance on fiat currency and foreign governments buying US debt.

Yeah, having Abortion and Religious liberties taking top 5 spots just seems a bit odd to me. I understand the religious liberties thing, don't get me wrong on that. But I'm not exactly seeing them in any danger. Not enough to override other major concerns that we're facing.

*shrugs* Maybe they were just given a list of options though, and those were the best choices out of that list.

Those two would not make my top 5 either.

too bad him and Mitch Daniels are both from Indiana. That would be one badass ticket

Remember this was the "values voters" conference - a group of SOCIAL conservatives.
