CPAC Concluded, poll conducted shows Ron Paul the Republican Choice for Candidate against Obama

Saturday, February 12, 2011

To me, it's just a wish in the wind, as Republicans demonstate their choice in a CPAC starw poll. Who's the winner?  Who else but Texas Rep. Ron Paul with 30% of the vote. Second in line was Former Massachusetts Gove. Mitt Romney with 23%. How about the rest of the potential candidates that we know? In short, here's the complete list as reported by CNN in Washington...

Texas Rep. Ron Paul: 30 percent
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney: 23 percent
Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson: 6 percent
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: 6 percent
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich: 5 percent
Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty: 4 percent
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann: 4 percent
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels: 4 percent
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin: 3 percent
Former talk show host Herman Cain: 2 percent
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: 2 percent
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum: 2 percent
South Dakota Sen. John Thune: 2 percent
U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman: 1 percent
Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour: 1 percent
Others: 5 percent
Undecided: 1 percent

Notice the disparity from Mitt Romney and down the list. Everyone that you would think has a shot at Mitt Romney is rated at 6% or lower. Of course this straw poll only consisted of 3,742 ballots in this annual survey, but this at least can give you an idea as to whom may run. The only issue here is that none of the parties involved here have stated that they will run, and another not listed who is seriously considering running against Obama is Donald Trump who is not in the list.
So there is still allot of confusion with whom may run, but the fact is that some of these people will come out of their shells and make the announcement. What will follow into the Republican process to choose a candidate to run against Barack Obama will be a show by Republicans to show exactly what they are made up of, and their abilities to cut their own throats as they try to emerge above everyone else. This, is the  process, but to me it seems a waste of time, especially the primary elections that will take up so much air time and the real character of each candidate will come out to be either attacked and destroyed for the world to watch, or to be hailed and eventually a winner to emerge to run against Barack Obama.
This is assuming that President Barack Obama will run for re-election in 2012. Most Democrats speculate that he will run, but until President Obama states the fact, it still is just a guess. Much of his decision will depend on how he feels he is doing for the country, and if he has a continued chance to market his ideas with the American people. It is the guess of the author of this blog that President Obama will be willing to run against any competitor that decides to run.
