Republican presidential hopeful and former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain dominated the straw poll at Denver’s Western Conservative Summit Sunday, taking 48 percent of the vote, Politico reported.

Cain garnered 246 ballots of the 508 cast, while the next runner-up, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (who has not officially declared his candidacy for president) took 67 votes, only 13 percent of the overall total.

Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann filled out the rest of the top five, each with less than 10 percent of the vote.
