It's interesting that 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place are occupied by three undeclared candidates...and the so called frontrunner nets only 16% of the vote.

More confirmation that the field sucks.

poll is of adults and with people who are not running. Garbage in/Garbage out.

in any scenario Romney ALWAYS leads, adults, registered, likely, MOE you name it.

Rolling on to Tampa!

Romney is leading because he is the best candidate the GOP has. He is the only GOP candidate that out polls Obama.

i love the homepage at C4P, it shows palin from the outside looking at the white house, that is as close as she will ever get to it.

Not much of a frontrunner who is only ahead by 2- in either case.

People just aren't excited about a Romney nomination.

That is except for those here at RS.

I think Mitt will invite her at some point.

have you decided who your leaning towards, or hoping anyone in particular will run or you sitting this election year out?

TexasConservative said...


Thank you for asking. No one excites me. I can't even say "yet" because those rumored to enter the race, don't excite me either.

I could never sit out the race.

I would love to see a Huckabee/Ryan ticket.

Sigh...Oh well.

Maybe palin can serve the coffee when Mitt is president?

That was a sexist remark. Please refrain from those, no matter how much you hate Palin!

By the way, last I heard, Romney doesn't drink coffee, tea, or alcohol. Maybe they will warm up green jello!


P.S. Utah has the highest per capita consumption of green jello in the U.S. My mom has a wonderful sherbet recipe she makes from jello. Lime was one of our favorites.:)
