Whaddyer mean “bs” someone asks..
Here’s your answer, buddy:—
As for the straw poll, let’s quickly dispense with all the requisite caveats. The straw poll, put on by the Republican Party of Iowa the year before the Caucuses in competitive cycles, is primarily a party fundraiser. Tickets, which are required to cast a ballot, cost $30 each. The results are non-binding and largely meaningless in their ability to help predict who will win the caucuses next winter.
H/T: thank you, Newhour.
