I am a little late in posting this because of some projects that have taken up much of my time over the past few days. The Montgomery County Republican Party conducted a presidential straw poll at the Montgomery County Agricultural Fair and Ben Carson came out on top.

Another interesting stat for Ben Carson has to do with social media outreach. Ben Carson lead all GOP candidates with average number of retweets from June 1 – June 22 (I know this is a couple of months old but interesting to know – If I find a more current article I will post that in a future post). Retweets are an important indicator for outreach and engagement of followers on Twitter.
