GOP Straw Poll

I honestly believe Fred Thompson scores a high favorable rating because he reminds people of the acting President on the show "24", Noah, I think that is his name. He filled in for Paul Harvey for a while, and the guy comes across as a boring blob that reads notes like a 7th grader, with a monitone voice. In fact I shut Paul Harvey off because I couldn't listen to this man. He sounds like a commercial for Cracker Barrel restaurant. That's about all I know about Fred Thompson. Nothing else. But.. I suppose if it was between Giuliani, McCain, Romney, I would a do a "Bob Dole" and vote for Fred Thompson. Only reason I voted for Bush two times is because he was the lesser of the other evils.. He was not my first choice either. But... than I would stand in line for 3 hours again like I did in 2000, to vote for Giuliani, McCain, or Romney if it was to keep any of the Democrat Al Quaida clowns currently running out of office. Same goes for Congressional candidates in 2008.

OK we had Bob Dole doing Viagra commercials after losing his Presidential run. Here are some suggestions for the top 3 Republican contenders for 2008. Mitt Romney - Vitalis commercials; John McCain - Super PoliGrip Denture Adhesive Cream commercials; and last but not least, Rudy Guiliani - Energizer bunny for energizer battery commercials..

Without question or reservation, Ron Paul was the clear and obvious winner of the first GOP debate, at least according to the more than eighty-four thousand respondents (at the time of this writing) who took the MSNBC online poll.

Before the debate, Paul's polling numbers had a negative rating of 47%. His neutral number was 44%, and his positive number was a paltry 9%.

But after the debate, Paul's positive score skyrocketed to an astounding 38%. Ron Paul's positive number is eleven percentage points higher than his closest rival. Paul's negative number went from a pre-debate high of 47% to a post-debate low of 26%. His neutral number also dropped significantly from 44% to 36%.

Ron Paul clearly and convincingly won the first GOP debate. It would be nice if someone in the mainstream media would acknowledge that fact.

Remember, media pundits seem to agree that Mitt Romney was the big debate winner. So, how do his numbers stack up?

Romney's post-debate positive rating DROPPED from a pre-debate high of 28% to 27%. His negative number also fell slightly from 41% to 37%. And Romney's neutral number rose from 31% to 36%. I ask you, Do those numbers reflect victory? I think not.

What the hell are you smoking? What debate were you watching?

It was a worthless debate. Between Cris Matthews cutting everybody off, and the 6th grader questions asked: why they even agreed to a debate, hosted by MSNBC makes all of them unsuitable. Dump these clowns and bring on the second round of debates on a moderate station Fox with some new faces. How about... Grettaa, and Jerryaldo aksing the questions? Need a moderator that keeps their opinions to themselves, and not trying to play "Hardball".

All these guys are a big yawn. I'm scared. I do not want a cultist Mormon who practice a religion that is weird to say the least. A 3 time divorcee (Rudy) seems to show the guy cannot make a commitment and stick to it. An old crabby Vietnam vet who should be out on a lake fishing at this point in his life. A nut (Tancredo)who would create more terrorism and enemies in the world than we could fight off. And the rest of the losers. The Republican Party is in dire straits.
