DERRY, N.H. — Texas Congressman Ron Paul topped a straw poll of declared Republican candidates in this first-in-the-nation presidential primary state.

Paul garnered 39 percent of the straw poll vote, followed by Rick Santorum with 12 per cent and Michele Bachman and Herman Cain with 11 percent.

Romney got 9 percent of the vote, Tim Pawlenty, 8 percent, and Gary Johnson, 7 percent.
