The junior Kentucky Senator garnered 36 percent of the votes (188), while his closest rival, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who did not attend the Republican event received 82 votes, or 16 percent.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 8 percent and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 7 percent each, Politico reports.

Paul said, “We’re excited” by the poll results as he departed Mackinac Island.

The Detroit Free Press reports that Stu Sandler, president and CEO of Decider Strategies, a Michigan-based political consulting firm noted, “In the presidential race, it’s very early in the process, but I think it’s showing very early signs of who is building an organization and who people are looking to for leadership.”

Paul told Politico, “There’s just a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of people out here excited about the message of how we grow the Republican Party”, citing the numbers of young people.
