Simple answer, Obummer will beat, McCain the second, by the same margin.

Re #2:

Well at least we’re making headway. At least you now admit that Perry will be the nominee.

Perry leads in nearly every state polls taken to date, Romney has no path to the nomination what so ever, and everyone else is in the low single digits.

Morris is in the tank for the Romney/Bachmann tag team, no doubt.

But of course Romney has a path to the nomination. NH’s pretty much assured for him, he’s got a chance with the Mormon vote in NM to win 2 of the first 4 states, and then he’s in pretty good shape in FL.

Polls 5 months ahead of the first vote don’t really count for much.

Only some of the states having polling as of this moment, but as of right now Perry is winning:

florida
iowa
georgia
nevada
south carolina
oklahoma
alabama
louisiana
wisconsin
north carolina
ohio
west virginia
kentucky

and Romney is winning:
new hampshire
michigan
connecticut

Toss Up
california - one poll has Romney slightly ahead (but within the margin of error) and a 2nd poll has them tied there.

And you can probably put Texas in Perry's corner and Massachusetts in Romney's even though neither have been polled.

So how is Romney going to win? where is his path to the nomination with almost every state with an early primary is polling for Perry, as Perry starts racking up wins, the momentum and money will shift further and further towards him.

New Mexico is one of the last primaries along with California on June 5th. And their haven’t been any state polls of it anyway to know which way it’s leaning. And Perry is ahead by 9 in Florida.

But I have a hard time imagining anyone in New Mexico finding a yankee from Mass. compelling.

That may be, but if he is forced down our throats by insiders a lot of us will stay home. Perry’s biggest problem is he looks a lot like Bush 3.0

Have you ever looked at where primary polls were five months before the first vote in previous elections? Even just back to 2008 is a good example.

Perry sucks. Romney sucks worse. The fact that these 2 are the frontrunners shows me that Conservatives are the Blacks of the GOP. We complain then get right back on the plantation come election time and vote for whoever the Masters decide should be our nominee. The did it with Dole, they did it with McCain and now we’re getting it again.

2008 is a horrible example, because all the choices bit, and no serious contender from the South.

This would be far more comparible to the 2000 primary with Bush and McCain.

Call juan mccain up at the white house and ask him if the illegals position did not cook his goose, not to mention the few hundred million Obummer will spend telling the old people they are going to eat dog food and die in the streets after Perry kills socials security.

Florida will likely be quite a battle, with the SS issue probably giving Mitt a slight edge. On immigration, Perry’s positions are more aligned with Rubio’s and Jeb’s. Those two endorsements may be decisive in Fla.

All good points. As a newly committed Perry supporter, I agree with Morris that bringing these issues up is a healthy part of the vetting process

There are a lot of FReepers who support Perry and are not "insiders". Besides, the "insiders" guy seems to be Romney.

Sure, let’s do Obama’s job for him, bash Perry, make sure Romney will be the nominee — yes, I can tell that’s what Perry supporters do. (/sarc)

In 2000 against Bush in the primaries McCain won:

VT
NH
MA
CT
RI
MI

and AZ his home state.

substitute Utah for AZ because of Romney being Mormon and you have the probable outcome of the 2012 primary. This will be a near repeat of the 2000 primary.

Perry is up by 9 in FL (29 vs 20 for Romney). Poll was taken day after last debate.

Then stay home. The only people that can force him down your throat are voters in Ia, SC, NH, and Nv, and somewhat Fl. The nominee is usually chosen at that point. But, like 2008, it wasnt some insider trickyness that did it. It was the actual voters. Blame them, not some secret backdoor boogeyman.

Morris is also wrong about Gardisil. Virginia requires it, although anyone can opt out.

Here’s another side of that story in Texas.

Short of Perry dying of a heart attack, he will be our nominee.

Not only is Perry way ahead in polling everywhere but in the New England states and Michigan (just like McCain in 2000 primary) but think about it... as each of the other candidates drops out.... who are their supporters going to flow towards Perry or Romney?

Perry will get supporters from everyone that drops except Huntsman. So add 1% to Romney’s current numbers and add another 20% to Perry’s already 20 point lead and you get a wipe out of 2000 primary proportions.

Don’t take Perry’s good polls too seriously. He’s the latest newcomer to a big crowd of candidates, most people nationally never heard of him and he’s just begun to be vetted - and what’s come out thus far is only good ammunition for the Dems in a general election. He’s just a McCain-lite.

It’s hard to understand if your not from the south, but people from the south prefer to vote for people from the south.

If Perry wasn’t in the race and Santorum was from the south we would be Huckster 2.0
