Results are in from the 2012 presidential straw poll at this weekend's Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C.

I was surprised that Sarah Palin placed fourth, after Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty, but Palin snubbed the summit. Huckabee, Romney, and Pawlenty all spoke.

Newt Gingrich and Bobby Jindal, also low vote-getters, skipped the summit, too.

Full poll results:

  1. Mike Huckabee (170 votes, 28.48%)
  2. Mitt Romney (74 votes, 12.40%)
  3. Tim Pawlenty (73 votes, 12.23%)
  4. Sarah Palin (72 votes, 12.06%)
  5. Mike Pence (71 votes, 11.89%)
  6. Newt Gingrich (40 votes, 6.70%)
  7. Bobby Jindal (28 votes, 4.69%)
  8. Rick Santorum (15 votes, 2.51%)
  9. Ron Paul (13 votes, 2.18%)
  10. Undecided (31 votes, 5.19%)
  11. Other (10 votes, 1.68%)
