for the republican nomination.
Looks that way.
Bachmann could be there for awhile though.
Perhaps, but I think Perry will get most of her votes.
I agree...I could live with either of these, but so far I prefer Perry.
I prefer Perry to Romney, but he aint that great IMO. If Romney is the nomination, I will vote third party.
What turns you off about Romney?
romney (and I never thought I would say this), vs, Perry, will be more 'electable'....it will be interesting watching the media taking turns hacking them both to death....
I'll be surprised if this country survives another year with Obama in charge tbh.
Yeah, that's the GOP right now. Romney's edge on Perry is that Romney is "slicker" in that he tends to say less bombastic things. Romney could easily beat Obama as Romney will steal the moderates and independents.
Perry fires up the base, but says stuff that might turn off the Moderates and Independents. That may no matter though if the economy is bad.
I'd give Perry the lead in getting the nomination, but I think Romney would be the more likely winner in the general.
Without your base appealing to a middle is a waste, just ask McCain et all who tried that route.
Separate names with a comma.
