Just for the record, not every Rudy supporter is a “Rudybot”. That name is given to those who go into an automatic mode, defending him at every turn, telling us every few moments that “he is the only candidate who can win and if we don’t support him, we will get a President Hillary”, yada, yada.
I am a conservative and like Rudy (not every single issue). In particular, I like his leadership and strength on law and order, defense, and economic policy. I don’t like Abortion, but frankly that has become more an issue for the courts.
I said if presented with a choice (General Election, not Primary) of him or ANY Democrat or third party candidate, I would enthusiastically vote for him.
I am presently leaning toward Romney, but he's not a "pure and clean as the wind driven snow" conservative either. Unfortunately there is no Ronald Wilson Reagan around today.
There is no surprise here. Romney gets a bump for raising so much money and for his NE roots. They will always love McCain in NH but he’s not viable nationally at this point. We need two strong candidates, and if Romney is the other one, that’s great.
Your reasoning is fine, it is the cliche premise that Rudy can or will be our only choice that gets everyone’s hackles up. We are a long, long way from that right now. So if Rudy is too liberal to be your nominee, then say so. Speak out for the candidate(s) you do like, and you never will be forced to “hold your nose” in the voting booth.
I'm in Georgia now too, going on four years. There are Dems here way to the right of most NY Republicans.
Born and raised a Yankee, but my politics have always been sorta' Rebel. LOL
Where did the other 16% go in January?
What if Fred Thompson enters the race in about 3 or 4 weeks, and immediately becomes the front runner? Would you find him acceptable?
More than acceptable. He moves to first place on my list.
However, I am not so sure he’s getting in.
Word out there today is that he is under contract until May 1 for his TV show. I have been told by people in Tennessee that he would enter in the May timeframe as well.
I don't know for sure... it's certainly not my poll.
Since the field was pretty undefined in January, I would guess that it was for other potential candidates who are now off the radar screen.
Note: there's no Newt or Condi on either poll.
I suspect when McCain concedes, Guliani is going to get a huge bump. I see McCain voters going that way.
Rudy/Judi's public adultery. Their serial marriages. Judi forgetting she had another husband. Puppy stapling. PLUS Judi's 20/20 Cabinet-grab train wreck.......have all taken their toll.
Have at it Judi, old girl. Go ahead, sink Rudy another 10 points---remember a forgotten spouse, tell Rudy you'd rather be vice-presudent, or staple another puppy.
USA Today/Gallup March 23-25 poll shows Rudy Giuliani with 31% of the vote, down from 44% March 2-4. Similar results come from April 4 Rasmussen poll. Giuliani still leads with 26%, down from 35% percent from March 27 poll. Thompson has replaced Giuliani in first place in the 10th week of the Pajamas Media online straw poll. (SOURCE FR Thread--Barone: The Changing Republican Race.)
I wonder if Judi demonstrated her stapling technique on Rudy’s prostate following his surgery?
I may be right sooner than I think.
Might have. She thoughtfully had US Surgical's
latest puppy stapler modified for use on a prostrate.
