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.

I would not vote for Romney 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.

Roger Goodell´s Tragic Sanctimony

Like many sports stories, this one is about fathers and sons. 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.

Gov. Bobby Jindal today said Americans are clamoring for a “hostile takeover” of Washington, D.C. While speaking at The Heritage Foundation to a group of reporters about his new energy plan, the Louisiana governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate said voters are calling on Republicans to offer “real ideas” and “real solutions” in Washington. “We need to understand people are hungry for big change,” he said. “They’re not looking for tinkering; they’re looking for a hostile takeover of D.C.” That means not just talking about repealing Obamacare, Jindal continued, but taking measures to repeal and replace it.

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana hopes to emerge as a leading policy thinker in the field of potential GOP presidential candidates. He released an energy plan Tuesday that in some ways is more nuanced and moderate than ideas espoused by other candidates. The 43-year-old governor’s energy plan includes a number of proposals championed by other Republicans, including expanded domestic energy production and the elimination of environmental regulations that target coal-fired power plants. Here’s five more surprising things you should know.

A former GOP governor is traveling extensively, speaks passionately about the lack of presidential leadership, is conversant in foreign policy and has a comprehensive vision for domestic reform. A presidential contender? Well, that is what everyone wants to know about Jeb Bush. Sitting in his educational foundation’s offices in Washington, Bush is animated and – if you think this has political implications – looks thinner than I have seen him over the past couple of years. No, he didn’t say whether he has decided to run for president, but he gave every appearance of being ready and capable of doing so

Sen. Ted Cruz wants to make sure nothing happens during the post-election lame duck. Not government funding, immigration reform or anything else of significant stature. Seizing on a delayed House vote on a bill that would fund the government through Dec. 11, Cruz on Wednesday publicly lobbied House Republicans to rewrite their spending bill so that it expires during the next Congress rather than the lame duck. And in a separate letter addressed to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Cruz and Sen.

According to the survey of 1,511 small business owners, 81% of respondents who plan to vote in the midterm elections intend to throw their support behind a challenger. While the Republican Party has typically been viewed as the biggest supporter of small business, only 32% think so right now, marking a 22% decline since 2012.

A sharp debate within the Federal Reserve over when to raise interest rates was publicly aired last week at the annual central bankers’ conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo. On one side is a small yet vocal minority of Fed officials who want to head off inflation by raising rates sooner rather than later. On the other is a majority that thinks a near-term rate hike would stifle growth and, with it, any chance of restoring health to the labor market. That group includes Janet Yellen, the Fed’s chairwoman, and most members of the Fed’s policy committee. Continue reading the main story Related

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and
