Mitt Romney holds an eight-point lead over his Republican rivals for the White House in a survey of California voters released Monday by the Field Poll... Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani... second with 17 percent... Sarah Palin came in third... with 10 percent support.

Fifty-four percent of registered California voters approve of President Obama's job performance (37 percent disapprove). Further, nearly half (49 percent) of voters there support his re-election bid...

Just how relevant is any GOP poll in Mexifornia? The electoral votes will still go to to Obama because the President of Mexico isn’t on the ballot.

“Mitt Romney holds an eight-point lead over his Republican rivals for the White House in a survey of California voters released Monday by the Field Poll... Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani... second with 17 percent”

WHY IN HELL are they including that cross dressing son-of-a-b*tch Rudy in these polls? Is hje running? NO. Is he seriously thinking of running? NO. So why include him?

Given his liberal leanings, if he was not in the poll then the majority of his support goes (sadly) to Romney. But stop including people in polls that are not going torun, it’s friggin’ stupid.

“... Sarah Palin came in third... with 10 percent support.”

If she had any higher support in a liberal hell hole like the left coast, I’d have to re-evaluate my opinion of her.

Romney, the RINO, isn’t on my list and won’t be.

So let me see if I got this right- getting only 25% in a poll makes you a ‘winner’?

When 75% of the people polled DID NOT want you?

(and selected someone far more conservative?)

They asked about Rudy not running too and Romney’s lead expands to 30%.

Ping me about a California poll when a Republican has an ice cube’s chance in Hell there. Did they poll Canada and upper Mongolia, too?

California plays a role in the primaries, but it’s a waste of money in the general election.

Why work when you have the evil rich paying your unemployment? Maybe Barry will run on a platform to rob the rich to get far more than 99 weeks of unemployment insurance.

None of this matters in the long run because CA's primary will likely not go until June 2012 when it'll all be over but the shouting.

GOP shouldn't waste time in CA except to defend some congressional seats.

Who cares?

They never vote Republican anyway.

Actually CA is meaningless in the primaries too. There's a bill already passed the Assembly to move our presidential primary to June 5, 2012 the normal statewide primary date.

However, even joining the Feb. 5th "Super Tuesday" primary in 2008 didn't help give CA GOP voters relevance because McCain had pulled away after a big win in FL.

CA only matters as an ATM for both parties.

And why not? A GOP base in a state that can accept Swarzenegger as one of their own can surely put the Romneycare hero in first place.

Does the rest of the country care, anymore than it cares about lots of things California does these days? No.

This shows the difference between the looney libs in California, and the blue collar Democrats in the Midwest. Obama's numbers have tanked everywhere in the Midwest (OH, MI, WI, MN, IN)...and yet the looney libs on the coasts will never realize the emperor is wearing no clothes.

Link to poll q/a

When the sample of California Republicans are asked to name
their first choice preference for the GOP nomination among
these twelve individuals, Romney currently leads the pack
with 25%, Giuliani is in second at 17%, and Palin is in
third at 10%. Preferences for each of the nine other possibilities
are in single digits. Another 14% of California Republicans
do not offer a preference or prefer another candidate at this time.

If Giuliani is excluded from the list of potential candidates,
Romney's lead is even larger.

I think Romney is the Giuliani of 2012. In other words these polls mean nothing. He`s too phony and won`t do well in the primary. Not post 2010, it`s a different world, but shhhh don`t tell the press!

Mitt Romney is the BENEDICT ARNOLD of 2012 (like every other year).

Check out where FReepers have uncovered something very big.

Fake-badge Mitt Romney and Bill Hudak
are now linked to the creation
of fake Tea Partys, including the very one
which attacked Gov. Pain from Texas
(see post 11)
