Nope or not yet?
If Rick Perry gets under 10% of the vote in both SC and FL will you switch then?
When Perry talked about going back to Iraq, I said he was only going to get 1% of the vote.
And then he did!
If Romney takes SC and FL (after already taking NH and supposedly, IA), and then wins NV (where he is favored), it will be very, very difficult to stop him after that point.
The numbers are the numbers, unfortunately.
In FL primary, Perry had my vote, but it looks like he won’t be in it by then. I expect him to drop out after SC.
Santorum has my vote now in FL.
Perry is sounding too much like an occutard with his Bain bashing. Romney isn’t a conservative, and his record as a Massachusetts progressive should be a target rich environment. Instead of focusing on Romneycare and Mitt’s liberal record, Perry has for some reason gotten off on this whole “vulture capitalism” thing and it isn’t going to work and is only alienating any support Perry may have had from Rush and others. It’s sad too, because I was very enthusiastic for Perry early on and even though his miserable debate performances I’d hoped he could come back. Attacking Romney from the left just tells me Perry is in desperation mode and willing to say pretty much anything no matter how ridiculous.
I like Perry a lot better than Santorum, but it doesn’t seem as if Perry is going to be able to get any traction. Santorum was a fluke in Iowa, and we’ll probably see him dropping in the next round, too.
That said, the one who should simply get out is Ron Paul, because he is not a Republican, there is no way he should be running in the GOP primary, there is no way this 77 year old nutcase is going to get the nomination, and he is just preventing any of the three non-Romney possibles from getting enough votes to coalesce as the leader.
I want a strong leader, with a proven record of accomplishments and a clear vision of the future. I want a president that will turn this country around intelligently and quickly.
I will continue to support the one man that I believe in my heart and head can turn this country around and set the right course for my children and grandchildren to have a better future........ that man is Newt Gingrich.
GO NEWT GO.........
I guess you know that your are ‘voting’ for ‘Bammy’? If not someone will be along shortly to explain it to you. (sarc)
After SC MAYBE Fla. it will be too late and Romney will take the crown.
I liked Perry and still do. But his campaign has been a clusterf**k.
His latest reincarnation as a occupy wall street type was a huge mistake.
This can’t work. If you simply urge Perry supporters to drop him and “support another candidate”, at best you get half to quit, and they spread out among the other candidates, INCLUDING Romney, so nobody really gets ahead.
What would need to happen is for Rick Perry to quit and endorse. But he won’t do that until after South Carolina, because for some reason he feels obligated to compete there. And since South Carolina is a proportional state, he’s not really hurting anybody by staying in the race. He can spend his money attacking Romney, which he couldn’t do if he dropped out.
Perry doesn’t have enough support to push either Gingrich or Santorum over the top right now.
Santorum/Martinez with Newt in a very high cabinet position and Palin as energy secretary.
But he never received “flavor of the month” like the rest of them.
The one who should get out is Hartman. And if Perry drops out, the votes would go to Santorum. Santorum is not perfect but he can win against Obama.
Gingrich offers a good debate show with the stuttering ahhhh ummmm Obama but after that he will be painted as an old DC Insider.It will be left vs right no matter which man gets it.Rgwt will paint either one as extremists.I’ll take Santorum or Gingrich but my first choice is Santorum.Besides... Obama cannot win without the communist wealth state of PA.I predicted many months ago Santorum would rise.
