Contract From America (CFA), which is a nonprofit organization that was developed three years ago to promote the tea party’s “Contract From America”, has conducted an online poll showing who America’s choice is for Republican candidate in 2016. As was reported by The Daily Caller, Rand Paul is proving to take the lead with 80% of the votes, leaving Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker with 76% and Florida Senator Marco Rubio with 73%.

It comes as no surprise that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is growing in popularity, considering the admiration he received from his nearly 13 hour long filibuster last week. His protest against drones and killing of American citizens won over the hearts of discouraged libertarians, apathetic republicans, and even strong right-wing media pundits like Fox News.

Interestingly though, head of CFA, Ryan Hecker, explained that Sen. Paul was at the top of the poll even before his filibuster shocked millions. “Given Rand Paul’s passionate performance … it’s understandable that the base is so supportive of him,” Hecker explained.

CFA asked members of the tea party and other conservative groups in the United States who their favorite candidate would be for the 2016 election. Out of 32 possible candidates, it is heartwarming to many civil liberties advocates that Rand Paul is the first choice.

Hecker explained, “I haven’t seen it online before, the kind of polling we do. … It’s kind of unique, but it’s also within an historical preference voting model.” He went on to detail, “We based it off of the preference voting model, where you try to show every single variation of the candidates against each other, and from that try to get a full set of preferences.”
