Romney Romps Over GOP Rivals:
New Zogby Analytics Poll

Forbes, by John Zogby

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 8/20/2014 11:21:25 AM

It turns out that there are some good reasons why the former Governor and GOP Presidential nominee is allowing his name to be circulated as a potential candidate in 2016. Some of those good reasons can be found in a new poll by Zogby Analytics showing him outpolling his nearest rivals for the nomination by about two to one. The poll of 315 likely Republican primary voters was conducted online on August 13-15 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-5.6 percentage points. Romney places first in the 2016 race for the nomination with 20%, followed by New jersey Governor

can´t be a real poll if Christie is second. No conservative wants him and besides where is Rick Perry?

I´d vote for Romney in a flash, because he has the credentials and the background. Would he lead the way we would want, who knows, but at least he´s proven that he can.

Will not vote for him a 2nd time, nor McCain, nor Dole. If he didn´t have the fire in the belly to fight for it the first time, and we have suffered 4 more years of Obama for that, SURE AS HELL won´t vote for him again.

We need someone tough enough to do what is necessary, which means building up the military, drilling for our OWN oil, eliminating entire government departments, and going to a flat/fair tax, AND most importantly return to the Constitutional values as the Founders intended.

Mitt Romney and his top advisers are adamant: He won´t run for president in 2016. August 11, 2014

I don´t know where Forbes comes up with the line that he´s allowing his name to be circulated as a potential candidate. Romney´s trying to shut down the draft Romney websites.

Romney will win easily if he gets rid of Karl Rove and the old elephant insiders and lets Mike Lee run the campaign. Lee can´t be Veep because he´s Mormon, too, so we can save him for 2024.

Ronald Reagan, president from Jan ´81 thru Jan ´89, was the last conservative President the USA had. In those eight years he managed not only to undo the damage done by his predecessors but also laid a foundation for a strong America both in foreign affairs and domestically that lasted until the end of Bush 43, despite the stupidity of Bush 41, Clinton, and the expansion of government under Bush 43.

With history as a guide I WILL NOT SETTLE.

Beating Repubs in the primaries isn´t the issue, it´s how do we keep another corrupt, deceptive Dem from winning the presidency. Romney has not demonstrated that ability.

Romney failed in 2012´s general election after failing to beat McCain in 2008 and GWB in 2000. Romney also failed in his Massachusetts senate run and was a one term governor primarily because he gave his state RomneyCare. Mitt´s decency and success in life are great, but he lacks the ability to inspire voters.

Do "they" actually think that conservative/republican voters are clamoring for him to run again. Stuck on stupid!! No!

The ONLY hope for America is a an extremely strong, unapologetic conservative who will turn DC upside down.

This poll is meaningless. Romney is just the best-known name at this point. I hope he doesn´t run again. We need someone who will stand up more forcefully to Hillary or whoever the candidate is. And we also need someone who will reach out to the conservative base. If Sarah Palin isn´t invited to speak at the Convention, I will have difficulty actively supporting the nominee.

There seems to be a disconnect by the beltway and east coasters as to the viability of a lot of republicans as presidential candidates. These polls are meant to mislead. We must have new blood to lead this country out of its doldrums/quagmire - none of the previous presidential contestants fit the bill, having lost before and will likely lose again. Don´t force the issue aimlessly throwing names from the past. It is no one´s turn - except if he or she is a new face with fire in the belly for America.

For all of you that ´will not settle´ or won´t vote if it´s Romney or not your guy...you´re handing the presidency and the future of the nation to the likes of Elizabeth Warren (an idiot almost unlike any other), or to Hillary (Obama-light-Alinsky fan).

So think about it and please reconsider, we can´t afford another Democrat and that´s what will slide into office with a 3rd party running or all of you sitting on your hands and pouting!

He took sky high approval ratings during his Presidency and squandered the political capital. Threats that it is all the conservative base´s fault if weak Republican establishment guys lose won´t work anymore.

The change in mainstream cultural norms regarding LGBTQ people and same-sex marriage has been so dramatic, it can be hard to remember that the Republican Party’s last successful national campaign not only relied quite blatantly on homophobia, but did so relatively recently, in the presidential election of 2004. Back then, Republicans from Karl Rove on down were more than happy to embrace the über-religious members of the GOP base sometimes referred to as “Christianists.” But as the Senate races now happening in Colorado and Iowa show, in the 10 years since Bush was reelected, the relationship between Republican politicians and

On first moving from left to right on retiring from the practice of law, I was quickly disabused of the idea that the right knew what it was doing; while it was clear that I shared their values, I was completely unimpressed with the manner in which they advanced those values. There was almost a complete lack of passion on the right, coupled with the fearful manner in which they approached even the most insignificant confrontations. My attention was first almost forcefully directed to this problem by the pathetic campaign that Bill Simon ran against Gray Davis in California’s 2002

The disappearance of University of Virginia sophomore Hannah Graham two weeks ago is the latest in a long series of girls-gone-missing cases that often end tragically.

The office of Senator Rand Paul, advocate of limited government, is in the Russell Senate Office Building — monumentally huge, forbidding, and labyrinthine to the extent that I got lost three times trying to find him. Senators and their staffers used to fit into the Capital Building, which is, you’d think, monumentally huge enough for any 100 dignitaries. But according to the Senate Historical Office website, “With the steady growth of legislative business… Congress has constantly struggled to create sufficient workspace.” Construction of the Russell Building began in 1906 during the “Progressive” Era. Until 1972 it was called simply The Senate Office

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

Big ideas sometimes play a role in political campaigns, but not in this year’s midterm elections. Republican candidates concentrate on linking their opponents to President Obama and his policies. That’s it. Democrats are understandably wary of defending Obama. They go after Republicans on minor or trumped-up issues, often in unscrupulous TV ads. This formula is working for Democrats. For them, victory in the elections would be holding Republicans to minimal gains and retaining control of the Senate. If nothing changes, they have a shot.

Republican voters are down on the sluggish GOP officials they elected, and the officeholders whine about the unreasonable people who voted for them. Republican backbenchers complain about their lame leaders, and GOP leaders grumble about their unruly followers. Right-wing pundits despair of unimaginative Republican pols, and the hard-headed pols are impatient with impractical commentators. Conservative activists loathe the GOP establishment, and the establishment is terrified and contemptuous of the base.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

Before Roger Goodell was National Football League commissioner—before fans and pundits alike began calling for his ouster in the wake of the ongoing Ray Rice domestic-violence scandal; before members of Congress began sending angry letters and demanding answers—Goodell was an 11-year-old boy, watching the Nixon White House crush his dad’s political career. The year was 1970. Charles E. Goodell, then a moderate Republican senator from New York, was running for reelection. The previous summer, he had sponsored a high-profile bill that would have ended funding for the Vietnam War.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls.
