WASHINGTON, D.C., September 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Social conservatives at the 10th annual Values Voter Summit have chosen their favourite 2016 presidential candidate -- and it's Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

The outspoken Republican won support of 35 percent of the 1,161 voters. Dr. Ben Carson was a distant second, at 18 percent, with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee at 14 percent.

Rounding out the top five were Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, with 13 percent, and Donald Trump. The overall leader in the GOP primary polls gathered the support of just five percent of participants.
