Gov. Mitt Romney opened up a 30 percentage point lead over President Barack Obama in the latest count in the “Headed to the White House 2012 Straw Poll” at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University.
The results as of June 12 are: Gov. Romney 2,342 (61.81 percent); President Obama 1,161 (30.64 percent); and Third Party 286 (7.55 percent).
The straw poll will run through Election Day in November and is in conjunction with the “Headed to the White House” exhibit on display at the Bush Library and Museum through July 29.
The poll is not scientific and does not represent an endorsement of any particular candidate or party by the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum or the National Archives and Records Administration.
The straw poll is meant to encourage greater voter participation, an important part of the Bush Library and Museum’s mission to promote civic literacy and education.
