ROMNEY WINS NH STRAW POLL OF GOP LEADERS; PAUL SECOND!

As expected, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney won the GOP straw poll today but Cong. Paul came in second.  Romney had 35% and Paul 11%.  No other candidate had double digits.

I have blogged elsewhere that Romney will be out of the race due to his Obamacare type health plan in his home state and thus this is good news for Paul.  But Paul needs to decide and come out swinging, so to speak, as it appears former Speaker Newt Gingrich is running (Gingrich is actually right now a legal resident of our own Commonwealth of Virginia but will run from Georgia, his former home state.  He is a native of Pennsylvania.) and Michele Bachmann got a mostly warm welcome in Iowa as the alternative to Sarah Palin.  People may be starting to make decisions and this will hurt Paul in key states.  I strongly suggest that the RP meetup groups immediately re-form in Iowa, NH and SC for immediate action!

    Anxious to see who will win the CPAC 2011 Straw Poll. Ron Paul won last year and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him top the list again. The Dems will be watching that one, waiting to pounce and personally destroy anyone who rises to the top.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
