I’m not buying any of these polls. Everywhere I go that I mention Zero’s name, profanity is filling the air. Absolutely no one I know or talk to will vote for him.

I agree 100%. I can support either Gingrich or Santorum, but I refuse to vote for Mitt Romney.

These lying polls are designed to depress conservatives, nothing more. Rasmussen is a lying son of a snake like the rest of them.

And yes, Rasmussen the rat puts out a poll that’s fairly accurate right before an election. He has to in order to cover his lies and cover his lying ass. But all the polling running up to an election is one lie after another.

Remember, none of these lying rat pollsters predicted that the republicans would take the US House in the numbers they did. And not a one of these Marxists published a poll showing that republicans would elect 700 patriots to state legislatures, effectively taking control of 26 states. Not-a-one!

So, everybody, cool your jets. All you’re seeing is the rat machine in propaganda mode. Send them a polite note, telling them to F’ off.

Some principled Republicans prefer Romney

Sorry, but if they are truly principled and supporting Romney, they are also uninformed and ignorant where Mitt "Progressive Libera" Romney is concerned.

Wha't more likely, is they really aren't all the principled and have bought into the tripe sold by the liberals/moderates in the GOP that he is the only one who can win.

The Republicans are beating the crap out of each other not Obama. All hypothetical polls matching any Republican presently vying for the nomination against Obama are meaningless.

While it is true that the Republicans have been bashing one another, they have attacked Obama, too. What is true is that Obama hasn't really started his attacks on the ultimate nominee, yet. Given the mountain of campaign funds that Obama has assembled, the assistance of the MSM, and viciousness of Obama campaign people (which even Mitt Romney can't match), the Republican candidate starts at a significant disadvantage. What these polls seem to show is that all the potential Republican nominees are vulnerable to personal attacks in the general election. I'm not sure I can understand why but Obama definitely has the likability edge in the eyes of most of the electorate.

The Republican nominee's best chance is to accentuate the differences between himself and Obama. We're not going to beat Tweedledum with Tweedledee. Huge policy differences can insulate the Republican nominee from personal attacks to a large degree.

I sincerely hope you are wrong and that most republicans are intelligent adults who can tell the difference between 4 more years of 0Bama and his GOP opponent.

I've never seen the Freepers this divided and so much rancor amongst us. I don't hold out much hope.

It’s quite amazing that Obama beats anyone and has an approval in the mid to high 40s.

Any Repub, with this economic record, would be in the low 20s.

The media is so corrupt. Obama attacks religious freedom. It ends up being spun as the Republicans war on woman. Obama’s energy policies result in $4 gas. It ends up being the fault of Wall Street, Speculators, and Oil Companies. Anyone but Obama.

The guy is teflon.

We just had another poll with Romney as the only one ahead of Obama.

Santorum supporters are grasping for a life line now that he's clearly seeing the downside of a peak.
