Checked my email today and got one about the GOP race. The information is pretty obvious to anyone that's been following the campaign trail, so to
speak. What I thought was interesting was some of the parts of the article. Now, keep in mind this is a Washington Post write-up, so it has a liberal
spin to it.
Mitt Romney leads the wide-open contest for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. But a new Washington Post-ABC News poll underscores his
vulnerabilities as a front-runner, as well as Sarah Palin’s lingering power to shake up the race if she decides to run.
Sarah Palin still in the race huh?
The former Massachusetts governor again tops the field, with Palin second and Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.) third. Without Palin, Bachmann moves to
second, and Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) runs third, the only other candidate to score in double digits.
So we Romney, then Bachmann and then Ron Paul. I thought it was interesting that they decided to include Dr. Paul in this Poll, since they seem to
have missed him in the recent ABC Poll. But what's really surprising is that Palin is still in second, even though she says she has no plan on
Without Palin in the race, Romney tops the field at 30 percent to Bachmann’s 16 percent, with Paul at 11 percent. Perry is at 8 percent.
Paul at 11%? That's pretty good, considering his being shunned from the Mainstream Media.
Even though they mention Ron Paul, they still made sure to keep it quiet. Bachmann, Romney and Palin got all the attention in the article, while Paul
only got mentioned in the statistics. Not once did they expand on his success thus far or anything about American opinion on him. I just hope for
America's sake that Sarah Palin does not run. The horror!
Your opinions, thoughts, anything to add?
