    I'd rather he won a poll that mattered.

    Businessman Herman Cain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are the front-runners for the Republican presidential nomination in Iowa, according to a Des Moines Register poll released Saturday night.

    Cain, who has shot to the top of national polls as well, earned 23 percent support of likely caucusgoers, and Romney has 22 percent support, the Register poll found.

    If he wins a poll that actually has implications I'll take notice.

    Ron Paul is raising more money than Herman Cain by a 2:1 margin. Yet Herman Cain is considered "top tier"? By whom?

    I'm sure Ron Paul fundraising will increase when "Gardasil" Rick drops out, which is inevitable.

    Don't let the press chose your candidate.

    Would you consider the California Straw Poll "significant"?
    Ron Paul Wins California Straw Poll with 44.9%

    Again, don't let the press chose your candidate.
