Ron Paul finished ahead of Newt Gingrich on Saturday in a straw poll taken during a Gwinnett County Republican meeting in Suwanee, Suwanee Patch reports.

Paul collected 115 votes to Gingrich's 73 in voting at Collins Hill High. Finishing third was former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum with 60 votes. Mitt Romney, currently the overall delegate leader among GOP candidates, got 25 votes.

During his speech, Gingrich outlined his presidential plans and called President Obama the "most dangerous president in modern American history."

The meeting was just one of Gingrich's campaign stops today. Early Saturday morning, Gingrich, along with former candidate Herman Cain, attended a rally in south Forsyth County.

Alpharetta Patch reports Gingrich said no matter what the "lamestream" media says, it's still anybody's race for the Republican nomination, citing his own and Rick Santorum's successes against Mitt Romney.
