Posted on 01/23/2008 7:49:01 AM PST by rface
So far, Mitt Romney is winning overwhelming support, according to a poll at FreeRepublic.com, which had been a place where Fred Thompson's supporters congregated.

He hasn’t. He will endorse the party’s eventual nominee. That’s the professional thing to do. He’ll also be invited to give a speech at the convention. The Romney people will even pay his hotel bill.
John Obamary or Rooty McRombee. Enjoy your "choice."
Well, I haven’t made a choiuce yet, now that he’s out. Read Carl Cameron’s column here, and it says his whole candidacy was to position himself for VEEP after all. that irritates
How many of these thread will be posted? Do a search.
One thing we all do well is Freep Polls.
I simply don't believe internet polls.
There's actually a secret groundswell of support for John Kasich here, but he's not running, so no one mentions it.
I was for Fred.
I’m now for Mitt.
Doesn't matter to those suffering from RDS (Romney Derangement Syndrome). They'll continue to litter Romney threads with this stuff...
I say Romney is a Reagan pro-choicer
If he doesn't, which he won't, does that make you an A-hole?
Do a search on the title....and YOU tell me how many you see......
I have no idea what poll you are talking about.
The poll quoted in this story is our own poll.
Try "No where else to go".
I feel like one of those refugees at a camp, I mean they have food and shelter, but it ain’t rib eyes and air conditioning...
The Poll doesn’t list Ron Paul.
With all the talk about the mainstream media’s blackout of Duncan Hunter, seems Free Republic would do everything they could to at least MENTION all the Republican Candidates.
No matter what happens, I am not getting into bed with McCain. He has already screwed me and too many other Conservatives.
I am actually starting to like Mitt Romney. I hope he will be gentle.
what I am doesn't depend on Fred's endorsement of McCain
He ain’t my guy, ever.
Im now for Mitt.
That works for me too (see the tagline).
They go where they wish.
The failure of the GOP at the national level and its massive failure in the state of California has given us few good choices within the GOP. Simply look at Arnold and McCain as state elected leaders and their future political office runs.
Back to the kiddie table.
The adults are talking.
...but doesn’t surprise.
NJ voters are just plain stupid (on both sides of the isle)!
I last voted democratic for Jimmy Carter, But if McCain becomes nominee of the party I will vote Democrat because McCain has hurt the conservative movement more than any other Republican. Can you image what liberals ideas would become law if he became president? At least Hillary would have the Republicans in congress fighting her and not making McCain legislation go though which could kill the conservative movement for decades.
Im a radical conservative but if McCain wins say goodbye to the Conservative movement for decades. Plus the politicians who back that phony would increase.
Mitt, the mayor, My Last hopes or its hillary I’m voting for.
You are kidding right? The only time I've ever seen a poll do halfway well was in non-member opinion and even then he never was on top and definitely not overwhelmingly. Usually he is last in member opinion.
Here is a history of FR polls:
Out of line post.
“John Obamary or Rooty McRombee. Enjoy your “choice.””
It’s worse than that - the next POTUS will be McClintobamney. It is a sad state of affairs that the nation that produced Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan cannot seem to break out of the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton descent into the abyss. Nor can we choose form among leaders instead of followers.
For some reason I followed the Kennedy-Romney race and, listening to the debates, I came away concluding that if I lived in Massachusetts, this would have been the one occasion in which I would have voted for Kennedy. I try to keep an open mind about Romney because, let’s face it, the pickings are getting pretty slim. But his past, and my past impressions of him, bother me.
For a start.
Without Fred this poll becomes a Ron Paul victory.
It's our own poll.
I don't believe any of these polls ~ there's a way you can do it on the net, but this is not it.
Polls without a more sophisticated background stratification than "member/nonmember" are too week. We have to querry their age, race, height, weight, occupation, annual income, sex and religious affiliation as we do the polling so that we can relate it to aggregate factors for the entire body of Freeperdom and for the population at large.
It's possible to do that quickly and easily and this website is MADE FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.
We could easily move into being the premier polling place if anyone wanted to get into that ~ money can be made!
Paul is doing well in the Louisiana Caucus.
Because the corporate media has ignored this process we have had to rely on reports on the ground from various parishes around the state. These are unconfirmed and from various sources but all reports indicate that Ron Paul has scored at least 46 of 95 alternates selected and also will win more delegates than any other candidate. Romney and McCain were the only other candidates to have a serious presence in the state, with Romney supporters being the majority in one caucus. All other reports are that Ron Paul supporters were in the majority at all other caucus meetings.
Don’t expect to hear much about it from the corporate media, but Louisiana today begins the process that will determine who 24, and likely 44, of it’s 47 Republican delegates will support for President. Unlike a media-driven primary process, in this setting what matters are “boots on the ground” and strength of commitment to one’s candidates. Though the final delegates will be picked later, if the ones picked today are for your guy in majority then odds are they will be for your guy when the picking is technically done. The delegates and alternates chosen today will pick who 24 of the National Convention delegates are and are slated to pick 20 more delegates later. The only way that can change is if some candidate gets a majority of the primary vote on Feb. 9th- an unlikely prospect at this point.
And guess who is expected to get more delegates than anyone else out of Louisiana today?.........
From “best of New Orleans”..
“The biggest surprise to come out of Louisiana’s GOP delegate process thus far involves Ron Paul, the Texas congressman mounting a quasi-libertarian campaign that has been defined by its grassroots organization. Dore says the Paul campaign dropped off a ‘whole slate” of delegates about two weeks ago “ a surprise showing that wasn’t expected. If any controversy arises from the delegate process, it will be from Paul’s camp. ‘We’re being watchful, though, because we want to make sure all of the delegates were registered Republicans before the Nov. 30 deadline,” Dore says, adding there was a great deal of interest expressed by nonparty voters about switching to the GOP in support of Paul. ‘We started contacting registrars of voters in 17 parishes yesterday about roughly 90 people, the vast majority of which were signed up for Ron Paul.””
The article did not mention it, but no other campaign had a full slate of delegates.
“Doesn’t matter to those suffering from RDS (Romney Derangement Syndrome). They’ll continue to litter Romney threads with this stuff...”
How dare us underlings question the Great and Mighty Willard about his conversion to conservatism just before he announced his candidacy.... and for some issues like immigration, after?
Past records are meaningless, right!
Just remember that when you want to talk about what Hillary did in the 90s.
“Mitt is our guy now.”
OUR guy? Please speak for yourself.
You answered your own comment.
Let me quote Jim
Yeah, we lost. Give it a rest

Ditto. Being smug will not increase Mitt’s holdings.
Well, people are still free to vote 3rd party, or write-in, or stay at home. I don’t agree with any of those choices but I recognize that some people are going to make them.
So I don’t think the menu analogy works.
An election is not a dinner party.
Same districts that tried to give us David Duke.

Exactly. These fliparoos are going gaga over their pretty face RINO and no amount of facts are gonna change that. Remember, Flip is a “life long conservative” because he SAYS so. /S
Not if you look at member opinion. He is below Hunter and Mitt for the member choice.
