For the second year running, Texas congressman Ron Paul came out on top among conservative Republicans in a “straw poll” contest to gauge popularity ahead of the 2012 presidential race.

Paul, who calls himself a libertarian, is not really the party’s typical standard bearer, by any measure. But he earned the most votes in the contest held by the Conservative Political Action Conference in which about 4,000 people cast ballots.

“There is truly a revolution going on in this country,” Paul said in a speech. “We live at a time where we do need a change in attitude, a change in ideas. We don’t need to just change the political parties; we need to change our philosophy about what this country is all about.”

“Our country stands at a precipice,” Paul warned. “America’s greatness and exceptionalism are because we chose economic and political freedom.
