Romney Rockets Ahead

In the Palousitics Presidential Straw Poll, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has pulled ahead of Rudy Giuliani 31% to 25%. John McCain is a distant third at 13%.

This tracks with recent national trends.

It was reported earlier this week that Romney has raised over $20 million for his campaign, more than any other Republican candidate. And a new Zogby poll shows Romney leading now in New Hampshire.

Here's a note for you college students (especially you CRs) from mittroots.org:

I know we hear about McCain and Rudy all the time but to me they are RINO's. I do not know Romney personally but I do not trust any politician from the state..err.. People's Republic of Massachusetts.
I should really research the other Republican candidates. We need a true conservative Republican, not a centrist or RINO.

Sorry, but he is a mormon. I assume one of the reasons he got all that money was from his "church". Policy tends to have an influence from the Presidents religous beliefts. Dubya is a Christian... and you can see that in his policy's. Bottom line, he doesn't have my vote and with the help of the WSU College Republicans he won't have a lot more votes.

I know there are some who don't like Romney's Mormonism. Personally, I'm not concerned by it. I happen to be a Southern Baptist, as is Mike Huckabee. But I will support whoever the party selects.

When it comes to presidential politics, my religion is that of Vince Lombardi: "Winning is not everything, it's the only thing." The possibility of another President Clinton for this country is too horrifying to contemplate.
