Poll: Romney bests Obama, but Perry beats Romney | Deseret News Romney is catching up to Perry. Personally I have noticed that Perry is looking like a lot like a "deer in the headlights" on many issues--when questioned about certain topics Yes--Perry can send a thrill up the legs of many GOPer's legs with his one liners--BUT he has no PLAN to fix social security--or a real jobs plan. Mitt Romney does. According to the new Gallop poll--Perry loses to Obama--and Romney beats Obama by 7 POINTS. I was a little concerned when Perry jumped in this race--and immediately shot to the top--when most of us--didn't even know who Rick Perry was. This is the exact same national hysteria that put the Moron in the oval office--that we have now. It's time for Perry supporters to look at the situation--because both of these candidates have their own issues. Romney--with Romney care in MASS--Perry with his illegal immigration stance--social security--and his using an executive order for young girls to get a shot for some type of cervical cancer. When the rubber meets the road--we ALL know that we need someone in the oval office that has A LOT of private sector--business experience. And that candidate is Mitt Romney. We don't need more inexperienced public service people--or class one politicians. I am getting real tired when Perry repeatedly states well look at my Texas job growth. This country is not all--oil and gas states--with a full house of Republicans that would agree to that and no opposition. Romney was right--when he stated--that just because Perry was dealt 4 ACES does not necessarily make Perry is a good poker player.
