Mitt Romney Wins CPAC Straw Poll
Mitt Romney wins straw poll at CPAC by 35%, McCain in second and in third Huckabee. It is obvious McCain and Huckster are not favorites by Conservatives, including myself. Go MITT!!
WASHINGTON — Talk about cold comfort. Mitt Romney, who dropped out of the Republican presidential race on Thursday, won a straw poll of conservative activists on Saturday, edging out likely nominee John McCain. Ballots for the straw poll conducted at the Conservatives Political Action Conference were collected Thursday morning through Friday afternoon. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, quit the race in a midday speech to the conference on Thursday. In the straw poll vote, Romney got 35 percent and McCain 34 percent. Mike Huckabee and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas tied with 12 percent. Romney won the straw poll at the conference last year.
My guess is Republican citizens in Kansas voted for 'anyone other than McCain' today in the caucuses held throughout the state. Fox and CNN have declared Huckabee the winner by 60%. The Drudge Report points out that Huckabee defeated McCain by 3 to 1.
Breaking: Governor Rick Perry contacts Huckabee and asks Huckabee to drop out of the race. Nope, it ain't happening was basically the response. (Broke on Fox, will update soon with link) *UPDATE* Huckster Rejects Texas Governor's Request to Drop OUT OF Race!! Also at CBS
I find all this very interesting on how after the tag team of Huckabee - McCain in West Virginia and in prior debates with all their dirty politics against Gov. Mitt Romney, now it leaves McCain facing more humilation and Huckabee as a big joke. It is ashame that Romney is not still in the race, I'm still feeling discouraged.
Sean Hannity: "I'll tell you right now, and I've not announced this, but I will be voting for Mitt Romney in this campaign. It's the first time I've stated it publicly. I'll state it now." ("Sean Hannity Radio Show," 1/31/08)
Senator Rick Santorum:
On the Laura Ingraham Show, 2/1/08
Laura Ingraham: "All right, I'm going to see your endorsement and raise you an announcement: February 12th is the big D.C. primary, I'm pulling the lever for Mitt Romney. No doubt about it. No hesitation." ("The Laura Ingraham Show," 2/1/08)
Because his politics is based on collaboration with liberals McCain is a divider of Republicans, not a unifier. This is the gentleman who on February 20, 2005 told Tim Russert on “Meet the Press” that, “I have no doubt that Senator Clinton would make a good president.” He is the same gentleman who -- defending his McCain-Kennedy-Bush “comprehensive immigration reform” -- screamed “f*#@% you” at Texas Republican John Cornyn, one of the bill’s leading opponents. He’s also told Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Arlen Specter that he was a colorful anatomical term and referred to Sen. Charles Grassley a “#$%^#*^ jerk.” It is difficult to even deal with people you abuse. Unifying them is impossible.
There are so many reasons not to vote for John McCain
McCain is NOT a CONSERVATIVE Voted against Pres. Bush's Tax Cuts McCain/Kennedy (Amnesty for Illegals) McCain/Feingold McCain said Sam Alito is too conservative (John Fund and Robert Novak column) McCain/Lieberman (McCain attacks Gun owners)
Huckbee's latest stunts: Gateway Pundit: Too much...Mike Huckabee (#6 on the Most Corrupt Politicians List) claims that Mitt is playing spoiler for Hillary-- Which in a weird way explains why he is playing spoiler for McCain. Huckbee attacks Romney again and talk radio.
There are so many reasons not to vote for John McCain. If McCain is the Republican nominee, I will not vote on election day. My family, including myself voted for Mitt Romney in the Florida primary on Jan. 29, 2008 in Broward County.
Hopefully voters going to the polls on Super Tuesday, will select Mitt Romney for the REAL CONSERVATIVE.
