And for the second year in a row, too. Paul the Younger received 31 percent of the vote at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference, handily beating second-placer Ted Cruz, who got only eleven percent. Meanwhile, Chris Christie received eight percent of the vote, which is probably less than he would have had Republican meetup been held a few months ago.
