I choose my candidate, not the MSM. Thanks for playing.
“Its not YOUR vote they are after. They are going for the undecideds; not political junkies who are not familiar with the candidates and will only be reached through television. Candidates have to counter misinformation, promote themselves with soundbites, and get top of the mind awareness. Politics is marketing your message.”
Well their money hasn’t been too effective yet. Cain’s on top, one is on life-support, and the other is stagnant. Forgive us if we have trouble seeing why Cain must lose.
The GOP establishment has decided that Republican primary voters are lazy, bitch too much and are too demanding.
That's why this year, illegal foreign nationals will be brought in to do the voting for the establishment candidates that American Republican primary voters refuse to do.
You know it cost Romney alot to pay all the debaters to hang around.
You don’t use that money during this “polling” period, you save it for right in front of each primary. That’s why Perry is still sitting on 15 million...he’s going to flood markets, especially SC and Florida.
You don't speak for the Tea Party...I know a lot of Tea Party members who are voting for Perry.
Speak for yourself.
Right. I guess that's why Romney spent more money per vote than any other candidate, yet never came close to winning in 2008, and is spending more than any candidate this time around, yet his numbers are flat-lining.
Not to mention that your man Perry has spent a lot and his numbers have nose-dived.
These Cain Supporters better stop spamming the Keywords and get started holding car washes
If money was all that mattered Steve Forbes would of been president.
Lol. They’re like children, aren’t they?

Oh, you mean the 34% that are for Cain in Florida (versus 28% for Romney and 5% for Perry). Sorry, but they’ve ALREADY been polled. And the ones that support Cain are rock-solid in his camp (i.e., Tea Party).
And Meg Whitman would be governor of California.
“You dont use that money during this polling period, you save it for right in front of each primary. Thats why Perry is still sitting on 15 million...hes going to flood markets, especially SC and Florida.”
I suspect that the Tea Party candidates in 2010 averaged about 10% of what their “establishment” opponents had in the bank. Sometimes money simply DOES NOT BUY VOTES.
If Polls were votes then Trump coulda been a contender. Enjoy the short ride on the Cain Train!

And so where is Trump today... You know you’re sticking your foot in your mouth with that one.
State-wide races are a different animal than nation-wide. It takes a lot of cash and presence in far-flung states, if, of course, you really intend to compete. If not, you can run a low-budget campaign, try to deliver a message, and vie for a VP slot.
If money were votes, The Donald would be the nominee right now.
Uh, he polled well, then crashed once everyone figured out he wasn’t a serious candidate. Same as Cain is going to do.
I liked Perry until I started reading the posts of his supporters. Now I can’t stand the man. your vitriol has driven me away.
