Romney leads the CPAC and Heritage Foundation straw polls, those are the conservatives. The 30% or so of the party that always shows up. It doesn't matter what the national poll says, because primaries are state by state, and it doesn't matter what self-identified Republicans say because primaries are about who shows up.

In the CPAC poll taken during the conference in March, Romney was winning by 4 points over Giuliani before the debates started. These polls are now three months old.

 

Furthermore, the polls didn't include Fred Thompson.

Ron Paul comes in second at Utah Straw Poll (not an online poll, an official poll with delegates) to Romney: http://www.heraldextra.com/content/view/224903/4/

 

 

Apparently, Ron Paul is not a fringe candidate, and taken in conjunction with reports his campaign has begun massing millions of dollars, he is starting to make a serious run.

You would think that after what happenrf after we supported Sunni militants in Afghanistan in the 80s, we would learn our lesson by now.

 

There's your foreign policy people! I'm not sure who exactly it is supposed to keep "safe" in the long run, but hey, vote Romney, Giulliani, or McCain, and we'll keep on arming those Sunni militants! I'm sure it is as brilliant as arming those militants to overthrow Iran (according to some reports, see http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml.../27/wiran27.xml). Overthrowing an Iranian government in the past did not turn out so well.

 

Sadly, I think this will "blow back" up in our faces.
