    I thought this poll would be interesting. Now I don't want to vote for who you LIKE and or are supporting--I would like an HONEST answer from you to this poll.

    The Question:

    Which current GOP candidate would be the BEST at cleaning Barack Obama's clock in a debate with Obama.

    Remember--be honest in your answer.--and then comment as to why you picked a certain candidate.

    I thought Gingrich gave good answers. Romney answers the question he wished hed been asked.

    I too went with Newt Gingrich. Gingrich would beat Obama in any debate so badly--it would be embarrassing for the DNC.

    I said Newt. Ron Paul would be awesome to see in a debate but you have to understand issues to understand RP and most people simply don't.

    Cain. I think his approach is very smart and though-out. He explains his positions and plans in a simple manner, without coming across as talking down to people. He's also prepared for everything he gets asked.

    I would say Romney, but if Obama made a correlation between Romneycare and Obamacare enough-I think Romney would look pretty bad.

    Gingrich may win at debating, but he has too many skeletons in the closet to win the election.

    Gingrich generally does.

    But the point I raise, and you will see it time and again before the next election. A politician is asked a question, after several minutes of dialogue the person has still not answered the question and is given a pass. It doesnt matter which party.
