It’s a slow morning, so I’ll give a little space to a straw poll reported to me.

This is a narrow slice of the electorate — 31 women who attended the September meeting of the Pulaski County Republican Women. They were asked to vote in order for their top three choices for president.

Results:

Ben Carson topped the voting — the top choice of 12, second choice of six and third choice of 3.

Jeb Bush, who got ZERO votes as a top three choice. Former hometowner Mike Huckabee got 1 vote as a top pick and two as a second pick, barely on a par with the now-departed Scott Walker at 1-1-2. (this group apparently didn’t get the message that GOP Gov. Asa Hutchinson moved up the Arkansas primary to March to help Huckabee.) 

A couple of the women couldn’t decide on any of the field. Which might be the most telling.

Maybe they were just addled by guest speaker Bill Vickery.
