Ted Cruz, Rand Paul top huge Tea Party poll; Chris Christie, Jeb Bush dead last

Conservative Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul top the biggest Tea Party presidential poll yet, while moderates New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are dumped at the bottom, undermining their hopes of being 2016 crossover candidates.

The online poll of 62,000 grassroots activists provided exclusively to Secrets finds that conservatives and Tea Party organizers stand fully behind the heroes of their movement, including outspoken surgeon Ben Carson, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and 2008 vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

But the poll for nation’s largest Tea Party group, TheTeaParty.net, and the influential conservative organization Contract from America drenched cold water on the hopes of Christie, Bush and other moderates hoping to attract conservative attention. At the bottom with those two were former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte.

The poll provided 11 different matchups. From there, the support for each were totaled. Texan Cruz was at the top with 84 percent supporting his candidacy, followed by Kentucky’s Paul at 80 percent and Carson at 77 percent. Last of the 22 candidates polled was Christie at 15 percent.

    not the Karl Rove favorites—-won’t it be suspicious of the nominee is Jeb or Christie? Nobody really wanted McCain or Romney either, but that’s what we got isn’t it? They got it rigged.

    If you have any doubts just listen to FOX and see who they are promoting. He will be our nominee….whether we like it or not. It will be another progressive NEOCON LOSER too….not a true conservative
