Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council, wasn’t impressed with the victory of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul in the Values Voter Summit straw poll Saturday. The Texas GOP congressman’s win doesn’t indicate that social conservatives are moving to his side, Perkins said on CNN’s "American Morning” today.

“I don’t think Ron Paul is truly reflective of where values voters stand,” Perkins said.

“Ron Paul bused in over 600 people not to attend the conference, but to hear his speech and vote. I give them credit for being organized,” he said.

Paul topped the straw poll with 37 percent of the vote, followed by businessman Herman Cain with 23 percent, and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum with 16 percent.
