This may put Bachman into the first tier with Romney and Perry.

Sorry, but none of the top three in this poll has any chance of being the next President of the United States.

That’s what Fox said. Were they wrong? They said Romney 4th and Perry beat Romney by 200 in write-ins. They said he got 712 write-ins.

They reported that Perry had 715 write-ins. Something does not add up.

Glad Bachmann won. Glad Santorum placed so high. Glad Cain beat Romney.

CORRECTION: Yes, Santorum 4th. They just corrected. But Perry definitely beat Romney with write-ins...700-something to 500-something.

I'm happy for Bachmann. I think she'll have an easy go of exposing Perry for the RINO that he is and Romney is toast.

I really like Cain. I hope he does well also.

Neither will I in a primary but I’ll be damned if I’ll sit home and not vote if he does win. I blame the sitters that couldn’t hold their nose and vote for McCain for giving us the America hating Marxist Kenyan.

Can someone explain to me about these ‘straw poles’ and what kind of weight they carry as far as credibility? I’ve Been following politics all my adult life but never really understood the significance behind this.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah. She was cryptic today, saying she would “announce” next month. Who knows. As long as it’s not Romney or Paul, I have no problem with the field.

Bachmann 28.55%
Paul 27.65%
Pawlenty 13.57%
Santorum 9.81%
Cain 8.62%
Perry 3.62% (write-in)
Romney 3.36 %
Gingrich 2.28%
Huntsman 0.41%
McCotter 0.21%

Perry, as a write-in candidate beat Romney. Not good news for Mitt.

Cain is so sharp and has credentials a mile long.

I'd love to see him in some sort of Cabinet post if he doesn't get the nomination.

You left off Perry, with little over 700 votes, as a write-in candidate, beating Romney.

I biggest problem here is that Pawlenty came in third. I was hoping he would drop out....he ticked me off in the last debate. Ron Paul’s number mean nothing...so I don’t care he came in second. I am glad to see Santorum did as well as he did...Cain not too bad either.

Anyway, I am pleased that Bachman got a boost. I think Perry showed ZERO class to announce when he did and draw attention away from this event. I’m already suspicious of him....his actions make me more so.

If Sarah Palin is going to run, I wished she would announce ASAP. I feel she will bring good things to the primary even if she doesn’t win.

Bachman has good values/ideas. So do I, so do you. Big whoop. We need someone who can fight and win or America dies.

Bachman needs to withdraw today and support a Sarah Palin candidacy.

They are totally worthless, except that if you lose big, you might consider pulling out of the race. That’s all it means. People actually have to pay $30 to cast a vote. It’s just fun now, because we’re finally talking about who is going to replace Obama. Woo-hoo! It’s almost over!!!

Romney is done. If he cannot do better then this in the Midwest he is DOA. I was worried he would come in high that he finsihed so poorly he is DOA. He may win NH but he cannot win in the South or the Midwest. He is DOA.
