WorldNetDaily columnist /news/archives.asp?ARCHIVE_ID=34Alan Keyes, once again, easily won the latest Republican presidential candidate debate, according to an unscientific online survey by Dick Morris’ Vote.com website.

Keyes had 62 percent of the vote at 1:30 a.m. Eastern time, immediately following the debate in Arizona. George W. Bush, the front-running governor of Texas, had 20 percent. Sen. John McCain of Arizona followed with 10 percent. Millionaire magazine publisher Steve Forbes had 4 percent. Gary Bauer, a former Reagan administration official, followed with 2 percent and Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah received 1 percent of the vote.

Last week, Keyes surprised many experts with a similar strong showing in a debate in New Hamphire, scoring more than 50 percent of the more than 20,000 votes cast on the website. Bush collected 25 percent. McCain was in third place with 18 percent. Forbes followed with 6 percent and Gary Bauer and Orrin Hatch each got 1 percent.
