Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney won as expected in an Iowa Republican Party Straw Poll Saturday claiming nearly twice as many votes as his nearest rival.

Romney had been expected to win because he spent millions of dollars and months of effort on an event that was skipped by two of his major rivals.

Romney scored 4,516 votes, or 31 percent, to outpace former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee with 2,587 votes.

Kansas Senator Sam Brownback was third with 2,192 votes.

Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo was fourth with 1,961 votes.

Among other candidates, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani received 183 votes and Senator John McCain of Arizona got 101.

    I am proud to be an American when I see the way the straw poll favored the honest candidate. Back about 1915 we had a politician named Woodrow Wilson that accepted a bribe to create the Federal Reserve. Through the monopoly of being the source of our money and by being outside of our government, or paying any taxes, they have built up a fortune that may include owning most of the politicians of the world. "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."-Woodrow Wilson
