About a month from now, most of the GOP presidential candidates will be in Orlando for the Republican Party of Florida's "Presidency 5" straw poll.

It'll work a little differently than the recent Iowa straw poll -- the 3,500 delegates will be pre-selected, and neither Michele Bachmann nor Mitt Romney will be in attendance.

The poll will be preceded by a debate televised by Fox News, and a candidate can only get a place on the ballot by participating in the debate.

In case you missed the Ames straw poll, Michele Bachmann barely edged out Ron Paul for the win, followed by Tim Pawlenty -- who has since dropped out of the race -- Rick Santorum, and Herman Cain.

Newly announced candidate Rick Perry, as well as Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Jon Hunstman, and Thad McCotter each received less than 4 percent of the votes.

In the event that those who say they won't be attending the Florida straw poll change their minds, we'll add them to our poll anyway -- as well as that one lady who everyone's pretty sure is going to announce she's running at some point.

So let's hear from you, dear readers, who will win Florida's "Presidency 5" straw poll?
