Gay GOP group GOProud's CPAC write-in campaign for real estate mogul Donald Trump appears to have fizzled.

Texas Congressman Ron Paul finished first in this weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) presidential straw poll with 30 percent of the vote. It is the second consecutive win for Paul at CPAC.

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney came in second with 23 percent of the vote.

Other notables include former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson (6%), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (5%), former Minnesota Governor Michele Bachmann (4%), former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (3%), former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (2%), and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum (2%).

Palin and Huckabee decided against attending the event this year.

But Palin remarked on the controversy surrounding GOProud from a distance. The Tea Party favorite said she disagreed with social conservatives who organized a boycott of CPAC for allowing the gay group to co-sponsor the event.

GOProud asked Trump to address the crowd and organized a write-in campaign for the billionaire celebrity. Official results show 5 percent of the 3,742 ballots cast were for someone not officially listed, but how many people voted for Trump was not disclosed.

Trump was booed by the crowd when he said Paul wasn't a serious presidential contender. He also said he'll decide by June whether he'll toss his hat in the ring for 2012.

GOProud's welcome at next year's event appears to be in jeopardy after the group's chairman, Christopher Barron, took a swipe at Cleta Mitchell, a prominent Republican lawyer.
